I just bought 4 cases of Premier Protein Water for post op. I couldn’t find any local so got it on Amazon $100 ouch

That scenario worries me as does the fact that bari Vitamins have also been up and down $12 per bottle in the last few weeks. I can see those going to $100 or more.

My surgery is December 7, pre op clear liquid is so hard. Best of luck to everyone!

Sams club had the Gatorade Protein Water the last time I was there. I also drank Bone Broth with Protein Powder — but keep the liquid under 140 degrees so the texture isn’t affected.

I am so happy to hear some of you guys have lost so much weight on the liquid diet, my dietitians said, I can have Soup and Protein Shake, she also said, I can use Atkins or Keto Meal Replacement. I am on keto shakes and soup. Jello and Vitamin Water. It’s working well. Good luck to everyone.

Your body is still healing, it has inflammation, you are likely still carrying a bit of Fluid weight from the surgery.

By the way there is nothing only about 5lb especially post op day 5. You may need to reset your expectations.

Fairlife is seriously the best! I have to agree

They really are! Have you tried the 42g Core Power yet? They're just as good!

My surgery was 12/3 and with the VSG/SADI & hiatal hernia repair - I was in surgery for 4 hours.

I'm doing ok but my pain creeps up after a while. i drink tiny little baby sips and belch immediately after. Bigger sip = stomach pains *and* a bigger belch or several small belches. Currently having a hard time getting down the 64 oz of fluids. But I'm working on it!!! I ate some strained cream of mushroom Soup yesterday with fairlife milk (13g Protein per serving) and Tomato Soup today.

I felt bad at the post-op class in the hospital - another woman and I seemed just fine but another joined us and she seemed so incredibly miserable. Painful, nauseous, etc.

Honestly don't worry LadyH - trust your procedure, the weight will come off when you've recovered from the surgery itself. 5lbs in 5 days is amazing actually! I am 18 days post sleeve and have lost 4lbs only. I know it's disappointing because we compare ourselves to others who sometimes seem to have lost lots more. Keep the faith, drink your Water and get your Protein - you'll be fine!

I don’t think I worded that correct I meant 4 pallets of the Protein Water from Amazon was $100

I just had mine in Viera on the 30th. A local person for me. I'm in Melbourne

Sent from my SM-A125U using BariatricPal mobile app

3 years ago I looked in to it with Dr. Tu (?spel) in Viera and decided not to do it. Then I had no high blood pressure problems and weighed 30 lbs. less. In August of this year I went to a Ortho doc and the doc had the sleeve done in Sebastian and referred me there. I live in Indialantic so for me, the drive is much better. Congrats!!

      What I've learned this last 2 weeks is consistent. That's I've been able to lose a pound here and there. This morning sucked it was 48 degrees but I am working on being consistent and sticking to it. Am perfectly sticking to it? Hell no but I'm working my ass off!

      A bit frustrated with my surgeon's office currently. Feeling like they are leaving everyone in the dark about when surgeries will start again. Told one thing, then told to do another. GRRR! I just want to be scheduled already! 😫🤬

      I'm losing more than weight. Ran labs to prep for my annual exam and since my pre-op labs in September (sleeved 10/13), I've lost:
      39pts off my Total Cholesterol including... 29pts off LDL 33pts off Triglycerides 18pts off fasting glucose & almost normal range A1C is lower on low end of "pre-diabetic" range My surgeon does labs at 6 months, so this is cool info to have in the meantime!

        Hello! I m 3 weeks post op and I just went through the worst constipation of my life
        I was severely impacted for 4 days (it was at the door) it was the worst experience ever!
        within 2 hrs I did 2 suppositories and 2 enemas, it did nothing! I always had the urge to go but it wouldn't come out, with the enemas the urge was greater but still nothing! the following morning I did another enema and nothing. I ended up going to the ER and got IV hydration but they recommended to manually scoop some out which I did but girl it was not enough for relief. My MD recommended: stop protein shakes and go back to liquids only like during week 1 and oral exlax pills, 1 dose and if no bowel movement within 4 hrs then another dose. I needed the 2nd dose by the next day I finally started to get relief.

        my advise before you get so constipated like me, is drink smooth move tea and
        if you get impacted like i was maybe try the exlax after you contact your surgeon and let him know they may advise to stop the protein shakes until you have a bowel movement.

        I know you are only day 4 so maybe not to worry right now. I had my first bowel movement on day 5 post surg. BUT BEWARE of not drinking water!
        I struggle with my water intake too, which is why i became so constipated. all that protein but no water, I know its really hard but we have to try. for me that whole experience has been so bad I am afraid to eat anything! Drinking teas really helps me with the water. I like chamomile and the smooth move tastes pretty good. I also try to ALWAYS have a water bottle in my hand. that is a good reminder to drink it. right now i am assuming you are at home mostly resting so its easy to just have it in your hand at all times.
        and I know its prob bad but I havent had a protein shake in a week. I'm barely recuperating from all that impaction trauma, lol.

      2. Uniquely Me

        I hadn’t pooped in a week also. I was taking benefiber everyday and nothing. I finally decided to take a laxative and went. I’m 9 1/2 weeks post op DS.
