Recommended Posts

Had diarrhea at first but that is not an issu now. Taking stool softeners daily and even that doesn't always help. Thank God for Miralax. Diet is getting more normal. Eating baked chicken, chili, string cheese, toast with Peanut Butter, some sugar free pudding. Feeling a bit sore today but not in pain.

Hey JJ..i am having the exact same!...i still feel pretty bloated, and having diarrhea around the clock. I cant wait to have something other than liquids....

OMG..I had surgery on October 29, was in the hospital 10 days. I’m on clear liquids and Protein Shakes. Can’t wait to get to the next part! I had liquid diarrhea every few minutes the entire time. The first night back I non stopped puked and had forceful diarrhea from 9pm until 7 am the next day. I think they were 15 minutes between where I was ok. I was SO exhausted! It finally stopped and I was so exhausted. I still haven’t gotten sleep since December 28th. I’m SO tired.

I am new to the site and in need of inspiration for my new life. I’m excited to read the articles and ask some questions. I’ve never joined an online group so I’m learning

Sleeved on 12/06, am having a pretty difficult recovery lol ended up getting COVID and it has set me back a ton. I had just moved to soft foods when I got sick and now can’t really eat. First 2 days did not eat or drink 1 thing. Now am slowly eating white fish but it’s just been such a long recovery for me I feel like I can’t catch a break

OMG, I ended up with Covid in my second week, I know how you feel about being set back. My incisions and stomach started hurting again when I had covid and still aren't great now. I don't end isolation for another few days.

Oh gosh I don’t know what I would’ve done if I got it so soon after surgery! Thank goodness you are okay! I was pretty scared for a moment because I was practically bed bound I could not do much. Definitely cried to my doctor a few times lol

Thank God you are okay now, I am certainly on the mend though not out of isolation yet. The fatigue has been really awful, I was sleeping for days!

Anyone who may have seen my previous posts would have heard that I had a really rough time for the first few weeks after surgery. A lot of pain and bruises from the incisions, a lot of difficulty with any kind of food (be it liquid, pure or softs) and various mental problems that come from such a monumental change in your life (no more using food as a comfort from life anymore!).

Im now 4 weeks post-op, and happy to report that things have improved significantly. Im doing much better on pretty much every front and as a nice bonus, im down 17kg (37.5 pounds) since surgery day. Sending loads of love and positivity to everyone on here, especially those who may be struggling. Things DO get better. 😀

I saw the Dr for my preop today she was shocked I could get up without pain!! I am down 28 pounds from liquid phase to today AND I’m 199 today!! Under 200 whoop whoop!! I also saw my endocrinologist and my Blood sugar was 105 I haven’t been on meds since 2 days preop (had surgery 12/22, I am off all diabetic meds AND cholesterol meds - in fact I am med free already!!! I really regretted having this surgery day 1-6 of surgery but today I’m over the moon happy I had it because all the reasons I did have already happened!!! I’m not even 3 weeks out!!!

      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!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
