6 weeks out and am happy as a clam I did this. Down almost 50lbs. 4 weeks post op was a huge goal of being able to eat fish. The shakes Soups and yogurts were starting to get to me. Now 6 weeks out I’m still not hungry and eat 3-5 is of solid food chix, fish, chopped meat Turkey , sausage, beef!!!shrimp is actually the easiest for me. So good luck and follow your plan. Also walking and weights 5-6x a week.

Anyone have a blood test for the nicotine clearance? I have never heard of it. I’m nervous since I socially smoked 3 weeks ago. I was a smoker when I started this process and I wasn’t a heavy smoker anyhow.

has anyone ran into issues 3 weeks or less getting a negative result?

The swelling that caused an obstruction is opening up thanks to the hospital treatments. I got the horrible NG tube out this morning. I also had a bowel movement this evening. It's looking like I'll go home to my kitties tomorrow.

Sorry. Not even sure my office does a test. Although they did say, not quitting could cancel the surgery

You will be fine at 3 weeks out. Nicotine is out of your blood rather quickly. Usually they test for cotinine. It’s out of your blood by the 10th day. I would not smoke or use any nicotine products while healing. You don’t want to hinder that process. I wouldn’t worry. Good luck :)

So glad to hear you're doing better. Yeah, I had an NG tube for a day, and getting it out was a huge relief. Now if I could get rid of this pesky drain, I'd be a happy camper. Good luck getting sprung!

Second day of liquid diet 😒😒. It’s like I feel tired or maybe depressed that I can’t eat. I never realized that I had a food addiction until now and it’s sad. But I’m doing good on my diet.

I didn’t realize until post surgery that I have a good addiction and I am still working on it. I have searched all over in my tiny town and can’t find a therapist that specializes in disordered eating but if you can find one many people swear it helps tremendously.

Group therapy is tremendously powerful in overcoming disordered eating, too. It's the #1 intervention for binge eating disorder, which is believed to affect twice as many people as anorexia and bulimia combined.

If you can't get treatment for whatever reason, seek out support in any other way you can, and take baby steps to help yourself:

1. Keep a journal. On the left page, write what you ate during the day. On the right, dot down how you felt that day. You may start to see patterns that will help you.

2. Read about how people overcome disordered eating. It's not a matter of trying harder, controlling yourself more. The way out of feeling out-of-control when it comes to eating is a) not being hungry and b) being a lot more kind to yourself.

3. Stick to your instinct that you, too, deserve to live a happy life. That there's help to be had and that you deserve that help. If you don't believe this, and stick to it even as you meet dead ends in your search for help, you won't get it.

I'm not saying it's easy. But it's so very worth it.

      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.
