A little positivity



Recommended Posts

It's the nature of online forums to complain or worry, right? Most of my posts have been worries, so I thought that I'd post something positive. food. Tastes. So. Good. Now. OK, I'm only in Stage 3, but with so many more options and flavors, I'm stoked! I feel like everything tastes better than it did pre-surgery and am satisfied with so little of it. No feelings of being deprived. I do get pretty hungry in between "meals", but the meals that I'm having, I enjoy so much.

That is all.

Lovely 💟 I am feeling all of this too, and am amazingly grateful that I have had this opportunity to change my life.

I'm the same way, even after all this time (my surgery was almost 3 years ago now). After surgery, even the most basic things taste so good to me! Like I can heat up a can of Soup and I'm like "This is amazing!" LOL, pleasant surgery side effect.

Sounds like your surgery is working just as it should and your adapting to the new lifestyle. If I feel like I’m getting hungry in between I drink Water or a Protein Shake, eat a piece of cheese or lunch meat bc any of that will fill me up quickly again. Good to hear your doing well!

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
