I’m also 3 days post-op. Everything’s gone smoothly so far, thank goodness. I’m at home and getting used to the full liquid phase. Strained cream of chicken Soup and Premier chocolate shakes are my buddies right now.

Really well thank you, I came home yesterday and today is my first day of having more than just Water. Pain is okay just some discomfort which helps when I walk. How are you doing?

How is everyone who had surgery today? I feel great except for the gas pains in my back!
Same her. Surgery went great yesterday 40 minutes with no hernia needing repaired. Stayed last night. Home now. Some discomfort but not really pain. Watching Olympics now. Sending love and positive vibes to all my Feb surgery buddies. We've got this!!

How are people feeling today? How does post-op day 1-2 feel? I’m getting mentally ready for surgery on Wednesday. The two week liquid diet has me exhausted.

I'm feeling okay. Still bloated and the line of little incisions wilm remind if twist or do anything that I shouldn't. I basically slept all day long. Being 1.5 days post op, I'm home and really focusing on getting in liquids and Proteins and walking at least 10 times.

I too am exhausted with the liquid diet. I have my surgery on Monday I am ready to get this done I have had so many issues along the way with my surgery being rescheduled then I had to repeat my pre anesthesia appt and on the second time around all of a sudden they mention a new test they wanted me to have which I would have had to wait for my insurance company to approve and it would be past my surgery date which means I would have had to reschedule again. I made such a fuss about it the doctor then retracted the requirement. Then somebody at the hospital dropped the ball and didn’t get my authorization extended since this was a reschedule so the financial dept of hospital called me 6 days before my scheduled date to tell me I may have to reschedule because it wasn’t authorized for me to find out it was the hospitals fault. After raising a fuss and calling and involving everyone it got straightened out but this was after 24 hrs of me calling and stressing. My navigator that the hospital gave me never responded to any of my messages. I finally went to the ombudsman. I’m so frustrated at the whole process. So Monday 2/7 can’t come quick enough.

February 2nd was my day. So far, minimal pain. Nothing needed more than Tylenol. I’m surprised. I had the revision from the sleeve to the roux-en-y. Best decision I’ve made ever for myself. This is definitely different in feelings for food-not hungry even the slightest and still cooked Breakfast for my Mr with no nausea or desire for a bite. I’ll be full liquid diet for 2 weeks. After the sleeve I kept saying I was hungry and they called it head hunger, I tried to convince myself that’s what it was, lol, but no-i was genuinely hungry. Now working on 64 ounces of Water a day and taking my needed meds throughout the day so I can get them all in. Need 60-80 grams Protein but not there yet. 10 grams is all I’ve gotten in since surgery. Have been reads it this is only temporary and I’ll be able to drink more of the Protein Drink eventually. I’ll be honest, the stings from the shots to prevent blood clots is worse than my belly pain. I’ll do those for two weeks twice a day. Done in Iowa and so excited. Oh and I’m in a wheelchair because of fractures in my pelvis. Got an upright walker and am able to start taking steps!! It’s all so new, I’m loving the excitement this has brought with it. Good luck everyone!!!

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

      Looking for new sleeve buddies! I’m 1.5 weeks post op and things seem to be getting a little difficult! I actually WANT food again eghh! Honestly, I feel like you don’t truly understand this process unless you go through it! Don’t be shy, say hello and let’s support each other during this journey 🙂

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
