November 2021 surgeries

Hello I had my surgery on Nov 19th. I have had a hard time eating anything everything makes me nauseous. All Water has a sweet taste and contributes to my nausea. They most Water I get in a day is maybe 30 oz. I was moved into full liquid phase but I have had such a hard time eating that I am afraid to eat anything. I figured out that it was the ant acid pill that made me super nauseous so today I didn’t take one and have done better. Anyone else had this issues? Any suggestions?

I drank mostly crystal light lemonade at first because water tasted nasty to me. After a couple of weeks, water tastes fine again.

Hi everyone 🙂 I had my surgery on 16NOV21.




kt2021, sorry to hear that you are having issues with nausea and glad that you may have found a contributor. I am taking 1 omeprazole pill each morning though sometimes I forget. Can you switch to Gatorade Zero? That works for me and has been reliable way to get past a taste of Water. Also, what about a chewable antacid as opposed to a pill?




ClareLynn, I've managed to walk 2 to 3 miles each day since surgery BUT I could not have done it without a post surgery compression bandaging. The doctors have since removed that and I feel ultra tender and sore. But when it was wrapped tight like a sausage - not a problem at all.


I know I’m not a November buddy, but wondering about this compression garment…where did you get it? I have been thinking it may be helpful

Hi Tamyj41, I hope you are doing well. How is the bruising? I'm still heavily bruised and the 5 incision lines are quite sensitive to the touch.

Have you discussed the stall with your NUT? Perhaps a bit more fat in your diet... hard to say what the contributors are but often (for me) it is muscle gain and according to my nut, try a few more fat grams to kick you out of it. I did stall for 3 days... no movement on the scale and I was like damn... gave here a quick txt and she said alter something about your diet so I did and walla... I'm out of it. Wish you all the best.

How is everyone doing on the post-op diet? I had DS on 11/29 and I’m still sort of trying to figure everything out. Got through Clear Liquids and now onto phase 2. Right now I’m freaked about some of the horror stories I’ve read on here about gas, dumping, etc. so I’m almost afraid to eat anything, but at the same time I feel like I would love a slice of pizza. Finding all of the conflicting emotions a little much at the moment.
How’s everything going with you guys?

I kept posting my journey on Gastric sleeve thread but finished my surgery 11/30. It went quite well and beyond my expectations in terms of pain, nausea and diet. I have been tolerating it all quite well and getting enough fluids in.

Atill got 4 more days of clear Fluid. And this is the only thing challenging atm. I keep wanting to eat and chew especially something salty and spicy. Jello just doesn't match 😂

Hopefully 4 days can fly away and I can have something mushy to eat 🥳

I would love a slice of pizza too, spicy one. If not a slice, even a bite will do right now 😂😂

But can't. I don't want to risk the healing. So will stick to the program and hopefully during phase 2 I can make a mushy pizza something combination without the bread ofc.

During my two-week pre-op diet I constantly craved pizza! I mean, I do love pizza, but it was kind of weird how I fixated on it. Since surgery, though, I haven’t been bothered by cravings (so far). I should be starting mushy foods in about 10 days, and I’m hoping a bunch of cravings don’t come back once I start eating actual food again. If needed, maybe I could pay my best friends to order a pizza while I’m around so I could cut off the tip of a slice. ;)

It’s so funny how different each surgeon’s post op directions seem. My surgeon allows small curd cottage cheese and apple sauce/yogurt in the full liquid phase, so that is helping me feel like I’m actually eating something non-liquid.
I’m worried about developing lactose intolerance post-op, but fingers crossed nothing has been too bad so far.

Are you guys getting the loose stool thing already?

Hi all,

New here.

RNY on 06/11/2021. Surgery day weight of 201 pounds. Today 08/12/2021 weight of 174 pounds 🎉

Surgery went well and not really any issues other than struggling to eat as much as my dietician wants me to

      Keep going. I guess I'm experiencing a stall almost 6 weeks out. Keep going.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

        Same with me. Lost 38 lbs from the week I started clear liquids prior to surgery. Did not lose an ounce for the last 10 days, woke up this morning and decreased 2 lbs. I think it is normal. Dont panic. Your body is in shock and trying to figure out how to readjust.

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

    • UniquelyMe28

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲
