I’ve asked the office for clarification a few times, but Clear Liquids is all I’m “allowed”. I’m sure he knows best but I’ve seen people on week 2 already on soft foods :(

Ugh I hope the doctor has a reason for the torture. You’re probably losing faster than most. I just hope you’re feeling alright with what you can consume.

I had my surgery December 14. And my stomach never tolerated pain medication. I had to deal with the pain. I just don't feel hungry and sometimes I still feel somewhat nauseous.

I have an appointment with my nutritionist and I’m trying to be a compliant patient but I’m just so frustrated lol i hope she tells me good news tomorrow. Hopefully I can eat some mashed potatoes or something soon 😭

I had mines on the 14th as well. I also had a hard time with the pain medication but my dr prescribed new ones that were more effective. I have absolutely no appetite either and I am also still feeling really nauseous. My dr says it’s part of the process…I’m getting so discouraged though bc I can’t get my fluids in and I can’t get my Protein in.

Hi! I believe it is normal, when you get discharged you leave 7-8 lbs heavier because they have pumped you with so much Fluid. It happened to me but it has come off already for me and I’m day 14

It okay to scared and nervous but the procedure itself is so easy. It will be over before you know it. Pain wise you’ll have little to none.

My doctor warned me about that before I left the hospital. He said to not weigh until day 4 then weigh daily, and report any two pound gain to the office before my first check up

My sleeve date is Dec 21st! I’ve been reading blogs and watching vlogs of other peoples bariatric sleeve journey. They’ve been quite informative about the struggles of the first couples of weeks and the successes. I’m excited to learn new ways of eating as my mindset about food is already changing.

My surgery is Dec. 22nd as well. However, I was put on the 16 day liver shrinking diet which is no fat, sugar or bread. I've cheated a little with having Beans and croutons. My terror is me thinking of that girl who went in to surgery and came out un-sleeved because her liver was too big. So that helps me stay more on track. HaHa. My liquid diet starts Monday for 2 day before surgery. I feel for you and good luck.


I cheated on some chicken and I have had some creamy Soup. But the past few days I have stuck to the liquid. We are almost there!

Weird question - I am getting the sleeve on the 22nd and I have Invisalign braces. They have little pegs they attach to the teeth to hold them on. I’ll be done next week and I want my orthodontist to take them out today - he is telling me I don’t need to for my surgery. I don’t really care and just am done with them and it’s only one week early. Anyone else have these before surgery? Did they make you remove the pegs? I have a call into my surgeon just curious if anyone else had this experience thanks!

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
