No, its just about how my stomach is going to feel afterwards. Im worried about the pain and what if I don't eat enough and become dehydrated. I'm just super overthinking it all.

I had my surgery on 1/3. I can tell you it is not that painful and unless you don't drink any liquid otherwise you will not be dehydrated.

my hardest part is actually eating my Multivitamin. I don't like the taste I should talk to my physician to try out other brands.

My original surgery date on Jan 4 was cancelled due to COVID hospitalizations.

It has now been rescheduled for 8 March 2022.

Anyone else on their liquid diet and super tired??? Just checking to make sure it’s not just me😂😂😂 day 5

I am also, it's not just you. I am on my 6th day of liquid diet. I have had some burst of energy throughout the day but overall I am just so tired. We will get past this!

Hi I am new to this group, which my nurse practitioner recommended that I participate in it. I have a surgery date of January 26, 2022. Can any of you recommend a plant based Protein shake/powder that works well for you? I have been using the Premier Protein products and the Ready Water products.

Thanks,

Alecia B.

I feel your pain. Mine was scheduled for Jan 18 and has been rescheduled for March 3. I am happy that I at least have a new date. It seems as if some people's just get cancelled.

Yes I tried them and I hate them already. I was looking to see if maybe I could get a good liquid one. I will miss my capsules🙁 let me know if you find anything good.

Hi owyn plant based Protein Shake is pretty good. I only tried chocolate. It’s on the sweeter side so I can’t really rock with it. I’m stuck with Isopure Protein powder for now it’s not punch in your face sweet. It’s whey protein though.

Yes please do! I have thought about opening the capsules and putting it a spoon with a little Protein Shake. I don’t know if that will be work for my stomach.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

      2. SleeverSk

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
