I had my RNY on 12/15/21. Got out of hospital right before Christmas. Had complications this past week and just got home New Years Eve from another hospital stay. Feel full. Trying to get fluids down.

Hope you feel better soon. I have 3 coworkers out with Covid. I just had surgery 2 weeks ago so I can’t imagine what you are going through. I def have that fear though since it’s hitting way too close to home. Wishing you a quick recovery. Surgery is enough to deal with and now Covid too. I’m so sorry

Hello … 10 days post op for RNY and I am still in my two week post op liquids phase. The Protein Shakes are making me gag and I found two things that help get around it. First, I discovered bariatric high Protein Soup . You can find it on Amazon or Bariatric Pal. I also discovered I can tolerate PB Fit , made kind of runny. These things have drastically improved my post op liquid phase life. I still choke down a Protein Shake in the morning, but in the evening instead of a gross second shake I have my high protein soup . Amen!!

Hello all.

Had VSG done 12/20/21. (Date was pushed up 1 day from original planned date)

I’m 4’11 and was 186 day of surgery. I followed through on most of my preop liquid diet. Clear Liquids, Protein Shakes, and non starch veggies only.

Gas pains were the absolute worst. Tried to walk and they were gone in a week. Was feeling better and all of a sudden I got sharp Migraine nausea retching and vomiting.

My daughter ended up getting sick too throwing up bile. Was told she had COVID although I was negative and we hadn’t gone out but to 1 othodontist visit.

I went to ED twice for IV and pain meds. It’s been terrible getting a hold of my bariatric team still no word.


Better today, but still nauseated and now having earache.

I have regrets. I thought I was mentally prepared and this is so uncomfortable.

Im allowed to eat purée today and I’ve done ok with just strawberries and ice chips.

December 6, Gastric Sleeve. So far great! Eating some solid ie tuna and chicken breast. Struggle with enough Protein and Water. Ideas?


I was sleeved 12/22 I’m on purée I drink a Protein Shake for Breakfast and that helps make it to my Protein goal. I bought a 64 oz water bottle and fill it every morning I just pour from it into a smaller glass. I’ve been getting in my Water most days. Just sip sip sip all day set an alarm if you need to. I was a big water drinker before surgery so maybe it’s easier for me because of this Idk

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
