I'm actually having a hard time. Not with the pain but with nausea and headaches. I'm thinking, what did I do to myself. I'm sure it will all be good later. Thanks for asking. How are you doing?


I would call your surgeons office and see if they can give you a few pills to help with the nausea. Mine gave me 45 of them and ai couldn’t have done this much without them

Had my surgery 12/15, recouping and still in pain. On the full liquid stage looking forward to the purée stage. Start weight 207, surgery weight 187, and todays weight 174. :) couldn’t be happier in starting a healthier 2022! Good luck everyone!


That’s great on the walk! I am really weak feeling today and the Protein Water was 3/4 Water I took one sip my body said No No so I’m not ready for that yet. I walk around my house we have a huge snow storm today but I have a Victorian so I’m able to get a lot of steps in pretty easy. I have two Siberian Husky’s that walk real slow with me it kind cute. I did get a binder before surgery and it is a game changer for sure.

I had gastric by-pass on Dec 11 in the afternoon. That night I was in a bit of pain but nothing unbearable. It was more discomfort because I felt very bloated. I was moving around easily the next day (12th) so they sent me home. That first night home as soon as I was able to pass gas, I felt much better. I managed on extra strength Tylenol and only had to take it for the first 3 days. After that, no more pain. I have no nausea and no pain. I’m eating fine and drinking fine. I had diarrhea once on the second day home but I’ve been fine after that.

it’s weird, I feel good. I don’t have any discomfort or nausea. Am I just lucky??

Anyone else feeling great?

By the way, I lost 16 lbs pre-op while on the prep shakes and down a total of 27.4 lbs as of this morning. :)

I had my sleeve done 12/9 and was out hiking this afternoon. I’m chewing thoroughly and have had no issues with any soft foods I’ve tried. I have one incision site that is a bit uncomfortable at times, but other than that, feels too good to be true only 2 weeks out. For those getting ready, or a few days post op, hang in there. It gets better. I was singing a whole different tune for the first few days.

Bypass 12/23. I can’t say I am feeling “great” yet but all things considered I am doing pretty good. Better than my hysterectomy on post op day 3. I switched to only Tylenol today for pain control and it is working to keep me fairly comfortable. My abdomen is sore for sure and this belly band has been a life saver. I am tolerating liquids fine. Problem is getting enough in to stay hydrated. Two post op issues are constant cough/post nasal drip and constipation. Coughing hurts the belly for sure! Hope it goes away soon.

12/13 for me. I have been wondering if it is a fluke that I’ve done so well. No nausea. No pain. Getting my Fluid and Protein and Vitamins. Hoping my good luck continues.

Me too! I hope it continues too. A good friend of mine had a lot of nausea, headaches and bad gas so I was really worried but I can’t say I’ve had any of that.

i do get hungry but get full fast. I feel like I’m not drinking enough Water though and I can’t get through 2 high Protein Shakes a day as recommended as I dislike the taste. I haven’t drank milk on over 3 years but these shakes are milk based so they taste awful to me.

Hi all,

I am new. I was sleeved in Turkey on December 20th.

Back home now and still thinking about food, I am putting this down to it being Christmas and there being so much in the house.

I am still sore from surgery but feel better every single day.

Hi. I was sleeved in Mexico in the 10th. What was your experience?

Yay that’s great. I was sleeved 12/10. I probably felt good after the 18th. Never had nausea either. Moved into mushy foods (pureed) with no issue. Hoping it gets better for us all.

      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!
