Oh man. So my plan says to do 8oz Protein Shake throughout the day (sip it). It’s 5pm and I hadn’t started it so I drank a little fast, over 30 min. My advice? Don’t be me. Ooof, the burps. My tummy saying “too fast child, too fast!” 😳😳😳

I am so sorry Merrill that this has happened for the second time. Once is bad enough but twice really stinks. :( Why are they even booking you in when a bed can't be guaranteed. How disappointing. No wonder you would be losing focus.

Is it possible to have a chat with the surgeon's office and let them know how this is affecting you emotionally and financially? Surely you are not the only one who is being impacted and they need to ensure that there are no more false starts. Taking care of their patients starts before the operation.

Covid really is a pain. Given that this has been the situation for the past two years time to make constructive improvements to their booking system. ((Hugs))

Hi Possum,

I was quite bad for 2 days tears running down my face depressed. But better now it is what it is, and you are right, we're going to be calling them on Friday to talk to the Medical Board and see where this takes us, bc it's just gone beyond a joke! the way they don't give a damb about how it's impacting people, yo yoing and playing with us like puppets!😔

This is an excellent response. Your point is so well made, articulate and concise. One would absolutely expect that after 2+ years, a better system was in place.
Thank you for saying this.

Totally agree with you Marianne♥️👏

Had my RNY yesterday, everything went well. This gas pain is killing me though and it hurts to drink anything, but it could be worse. Trying to walk as much as I can and taking gas-x. Anyone have any other tricks?

Heat pad is lovely way to help with the pain.

You aint no puppet Merrill. I am glad that you will be going to the medical board. If the hospital was losing money I am sure they would make a change. I wonder if they could refund your costs to date?

The distress of this must be so hard. Channel your hurt/anger into some exercise or whatever you think will have a positive effect. Hopefully on Friday a solution will be found. I would love to hear the outcome. Hugs dear lady.

Gas x , walk, heat pad, abdominal massage, I had my husband do bicycles on my legs-that got the job done and my husband just shook his head. I felt SO BAD! But so good at the same time 🤦🏾‍♀️

That's awesome. I had mine the 13. I gained weight because I was so swollen. It's is starting to come off. I gained 6 lbs and now I am down those 6. Can't wait for next week and walking more to see how much I will use.

I've been steadily losing at least a pound per day since surgery on the 13th. My first follow up with surgeon is on Monday. One of my incisions (the one where the stomach was pulled out) is still a bit swollen, and the entire area around it has started itching unbearably! No redness or sign of infection. Just ITCH.

I am itching as well. The incision that had the drain is still leaking a little of clear Fluid. No redness. I want it to heal so that I can get into the pool soon. Today is day six and I can't believe the difference in one day. Every morning when I get up I feel as though someone kicked me on the gut. It's slightly sore/stift but not near the pain. I am just tired. Anyone else want a nap Every day?

      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!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
