Post op Day 7

last night I had the gas pains up in my collar bone area, mostly felt upon inhalation while laying down. It was sharp and annoying.

today I am in a mood about having this.
I. AM. CUSSING. HUNGRY.

not “head hunger”, eye roll, real legit, stomaching eating itself hungry. I want to eat anything and everything and annoyed that I can’t!

many times throughout the day I have thought “WTF did i do?” I chose this. I paid for this out of pocket.
I’m hoping this feeling is normal at this point and temporary.

i did normal household things today, without any trouble. I’m still guarding my belly button incision and careful not to lift anything over 10 pounds.

I felt tired a lot and spacey. But also totally normal at times.

I drank my Water, about 48 oz no problem.

no Protein Shakes or waters bc I just can’t.

I am changing my Vitamin because it’s so gross, so just to have SOMETHING I took a few of Flinstones Vitamins.
apparently I can’t take capsules for 30 days, which there went my plan For the barislims.

anyways. I just want to eat. Totally second guessing why I did this. I just feel stupid.

I was told 3 days of clear and then full liquids. It’s really all over the board with the different plans. I couldn’t tell you any evidence based reason why one over the other though.

Thank you! How long will you be on full liquids before going to puree?

Also, I licked a cool ranch Dorito today and it was divine.

If you like those, when you can have chips try the Quest Protein ranch chips. Not the same of course, but I love cool rancH Doritos and the quest chips are a good substitute.

I’m stoked on trying these quest chips I keep reading about!

I'll be sure to try these! Can you have these during the soft food phase?

Sorry no. They’re a chip & crunchy so too hard & coarse. Soft food still has to be very moist. Think like a stew or bolognese meat sauce, flaky fish, etc. so you’re still not having to really chew a lot.

Hello! I'm just curious. I had surgery this past Friday and was told I had to do Clear Liquids for 2 weeks. It seems as if some people don't have the same requirement. How soon were you told that you could start full liquids?

I’m Clear Liquids for a week, then full liquids for the next week.

      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.

      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 🥲
