I just had my 1st post op appointment 5/24/22 and the nurse told me to try and avoid the scale at all costs. She said that my metabolism will be doing all kinds of crazy things to adjust after the surgery. She promised to just follow the dieticians plan and get in some walking and weight will continue to fall off.

After being postponed twice with my surgery due to covid cases, I'm now rescheduled for the 27th of June. Reading all this about the scales and stalling I'm one that weighs herself everyday lol it's good that I've watched this video, such vital information for everyone having this sort of surgery for weight loss, thanks so much for sharing 🙏🙏🙏

I’m on the “notify” list for the sample pack they sell on this site. It’s sold out along with all the other packs of the same brand so it must be good!

For me it has a very chemical after taste that is off-putting, but it's such a good source of Protein in a small quantity that I am still using it, but as a smoothy base with a little Fairlife vanilla Protein Shake and plain greek yogurt. Since today I start soft foods, I am going to add a little banana. MUCH tastier this way!

Congrats surgery twin! Tuesday for my sleeve too.

I spent one night in and was released the next day. I'm doing my walking, getting the Protein and Water required. Pain is manageable with Tylenol and gabapentin.

How is it going for you?

Good video explaining it


That’s Chris McGowan. He’s in his own practice now, but used to be with the group I’m using. I screened with his practice but he does a ‘Gastroplasty’ not gastrectomy and insurance companies don’t cover it…yet. And, I think one can only expect tops a 50 lb weight loss with his procedure.
That being said, he is regarded as a top surgeon, and my family practice doctor mentioned him to me. As I said, he’s highly regarded and his former practice has the best of the best surgeons.
His advice is excellent. I remember watching this video about 5 months ago when first starting my research. Today I watched it and marveled at how calmly he speaks about the ‘stall’ and I had to wonder how many times he’s had to talk someone off the ledge when they have a stall after going through all this.

1 day post op. I was in so much pain yesterday none of the pain medication was working for me. I was able to drink without feeling nauseous. My Breakfast tray consist of Protein Shake, milk, veggie broth and decaffeinate coffee. I should be getting discharged today even though I’m still having pain

      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?
