Hey friends. My surgery was February 14, 2022 at 2 pm. My surgery was textbook. No issues for my surgeon. I was in my room by 6 pm that evening. Now what happened after that is a much longer story. If anyone wants to hear it I will be happy to share. I wish everyone else a happy and healthy time as we do this thing!!

Hey! Mine was on the 14th too. How are you feeling?

I'm doing okay. Still have gas pain and abdomimal cramping.

Other than that I'm up and moving though. I feel so incurring tired though like I have no energy to do anything.

Hi! Feel free to share or send me a private message if you prefer. I’m still in the hospital. Day 2 after surgery. No leakage thank God. Just a lot of abdominal pain, but that’s to be expected since I had the DS and a hernia repair. Everything went really well surgery wise so should be released tomorrow!

Hey there - I just want to share that I had the sleeve surgery on Feb. 1, and since starting the pre-op diet on Jan. 13, I’m down 33.7 pounds and down 16.4 pounds since the surgery. And this week, I’m officially down a clothing size from 18W pants to 16W, which feels great. I started the puréed food stage on Tuesday, and like many others have shared, I can definitely feel my restriction more than I could with full liquids. I’m still learning to slow down when I eat and to eat smaller bites so that I don’t feel an uncomfortable fullness sensation in my chest. Other than that, things are going really well. I hope others are doing well, too.

Since I started puréed foods, I’ve had hummus and saltine crackers (either I ate it too fast or it didn’t agree with me, bc I had chest pains both times I tried it). I also had cottage cheese a couple times without much trouble and refried Beans with some melted shredded cheese on top. Today, I tried tuna fish with a tablespoon of mayo, which I also ate with saltine crackers. That was really good. I’m planning to try the recipe for Shelly’s ricotta bake soon. What puréed foods have you tried so far?

I really like the Ricotta Bake and got a great sugar free marinara from Amazon. I have not been very adventurous with pureed food at all. I have had a scrambled egg, chicken with a little mayo, and the Ricotta Bake. The very first thing I made was a Buffalo chicken puree. What a mistake! I was miserable for an entire day. Right now I am doing two Protein Shakes and one pureed meal a day. I know need to get over the fear and try to get some more pureed food in.

      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.

        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
