Had gastric sleeve on Nov 1st. Had to stay a week in the hospital because a night nurse gave me Tylenol pills the first night and my stomach decided to swell. I was NPO (nothing by mouth? For 5 days. Came home on the 7th and the 12th developed lactose intolerance to all my Protein Shakes and yogurts everything I had for Protein. It’s been a struggle getting enough protein, today I’ve been so bloated and burping constantly the Dr now thinks it could be my gallbladder or my small intestine is not digesting well. I’m a little frustrated but trying my best.

I had a VSG(vertical sleeve gastrectomy) on November 11th. First day home from the hospital was tough because I was pretty sore at incision sites and quite weak, but now a week later I feel amazing and down 20 pounds from original weight! I am already see I ng a difference is joint pain. Best life decision ever

My program refers to the entire 2-week thing as a "liquid diet," but part of the plan is a Protein Bar every day plus either a banana or 8oz of low-fat milk (for potassium). It becomes strictly liquid-only 2 days before surgery, though. For me, that will happen on Saturday. I love bananas, so that was an easy choice at first, but right now I'm desperate for any variety so I'll be switching to 1% milk this week. :) And they only provided 12 Protein Bars to begin with (smart bariatric center!), so I won't have to remember to stop eating them. I have my pre-op nutritionist appointment tomorrow morning, and Wednesday morning is the pre-op with my surgeon. I have a feeling this week will go by really fast!!

My surgery was on 11/01. I only had a liquid only diet the day before my surgery. I guess each doctor protocols are different for pre-op requirements.

I think I needed to create my own topic for my question so I did. Couldn't see how to remove this one.

You have to set your mind and get rid of old habits.,

I get you I was like this before but after I got my 2nd Surgery from Sleeve headache by Md to bypass., I took classes in Nutrition relationship with Sleeve and Bypass and Realtionship with food., I drop a lot of weight before my 2nd surgery I didn’t really need to my case was special type case., I’m happy I got the bypass it’s not easy this new one but I came prepared this time around.

*Raises hand*
I had gastric bypass on Nov 18, also in Mexico. Been feeling great since then except for some bouts of fatigue. I have a TOUGH time getting up in the morning (always have, but caffeine used to help). Check in with my local GP tomorrow and hoping to be cleared for more activity!

So, I'm a little more than two weeks out from surgery. Seems like every evening I deal with some back pain. It's more middle of the back... possibly near my kidneys. It's an annoying ache. I thought it might be from not getting enough Water or from the fact that I have started to add some pureed items to the diet choices, but I can't figure it out. Anyone else?

      I've hit a stall 9 months out. I'm not worried, though. My fitness levels continue to improve and I have nearly accomplished my pre-surgery goal of learning to scuba dive! One dive left to complete to get my PADI card 🐠
      I was able to go for a 10K/6mile hike in the mountains two days ago just for the fun of it. In the before days, I might have attempted this, but it would have taken me 7 or 8 hours to complete and I would have been exhausted and in pain for the next two days. Taking my time with breaks for snacks and water, I was finished with my wee jaunt in only 4 hours 😎 and really got to enjoy photographing some insects, fungi, and turtles.
      Just for fun last week, I ran two 5Ks in two days, something I would have never done in the past! Next goal is a 10K before the end of this month.

      Hi everyone, I wrote back in May about having no strength. I still get totally exhausted just walking from room to room, it’s so bad I’m using a walker with wheels of all things. I had the gastric sleeve Jan. 24th. I’m doing exactly what the programs says, except protein shakes. I have different meats and protein bars daily, including vitamins daily. I do drink my fluids as well.  I go in for IV hydration 4 days a week and feel ok just til evening.  So far as of Jan 1st I’ve dropped 76 lbs. I just want to enjoy the weight lose. Any suggestions or has anyone else gone thru this??  Doctor says just increase calorie intake, still the same.

      Losing my hair in clumps and still dealing with "stomach" issues from gallbladder removal surgery. On the positive side I'm doing better about meeting protein and water goals and taking my vitamins, so yay? 🤷‍♀️
