I am scared and nervous . Anyone getting second thoughts?

I was scared until I did it. I had mines done on 12/10 and as of today I am 16lbs down. I have no regrets. It’s a difficult journey but it’s worth it. You can do it!! ✊🏾

Oh no, sorry to hear. I remembered your surgery was yesterday and was hoping for the best for you. Hopefully it’s just inflammation causing the problem and it will get better real soon. Keep us posted.

I went through that. It was divided. Some supported my decision and others opposed it but I did it and I have no regrets. Do what you feel you need to do. Remember that this is your body and you Are doing this to live, right? Mines was a little complexed than yours because I traveled to Mexico. My insurance wouldn’t cover it so I did what I needed to do. My surgeon and medical team were great, I met a lot of wonderful people from all over and I’m happy that I made the choice to go.

Was sleeved 12/06, had my transition appt and on 12/27 I can start “soft” foods. I’m questioning what my nutritionist told me. She said I can have cottage cheese tuna hummus or tofu… and have to wait an entire month for chicken. And for some reason I just think it’s wrong? Practically everyone I know who was sleeved could have chicken already. I hate cheese tofu and hummus so am I supposed to live on fish for a month what the heck 😭

Hello to everyone, thank you for all the information, I hope everyone is doing well, I had my surgery on 12/09/2021. I am currently on puréed for until, 01/19/2021. I am struggling to get my Protein and Water in, however I am doing well, I do have a hard time using the bathroom room, it’s nearly nonexistent, When I swallowed too fast I get very bad stomach pain. But I am getting my 5000 steps in most of the time. All in all it’s not too bad, no dizzy spell or light headed feeling.
Wishing everyone a happy and healthy holiday season.

Stay safe virus is very bad out there.
take care.

Hi there -

First post ever! I had surgery on the 15th of December, released from the hospital on December 16th. Feel pretty good - but having a lot of trouble with the Protein requirement which is making me very tired and weak. I hate the shakes and got permission from my surgeon to drink the protein Water instead. Now I'm beginning to develop an aversion to that.

I go back to the doctor on the 27th. I'm hoping - hoping! - he'll release me then to start eating soft foods. I'm still on liquids only.

How quickly were you able to eat soft foods? I see a lot of people eating eggs and yogurt far more quickly than the 2 weeks I've been told. Also, how soon do you start to feel...."normal" again? I just feel so weak and fuzzy.

I checked my food logs. I had a bite of dark meat turkey and ham for thanksgiving (day 17). Then I waited a few more days and had dark meat chicken again. I was also able to eat puréed chicken breast. I limited it to an ounce. After I hit a month, I tried ground turkey and chicken breast. The chicken breast was too dry and made me sick. I try to keep my Protein to 2 oz.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
