I’m so happy to be home. My sleeve was yesterday. Surgery went well but I did not like the hospital so I’m relieved to be home.

Welcome home. I was scared to leave hospital but improved the moment I got home. It was very uncomfortable in there and I am also so happy to be home and managing myself. I hope you are feeling ok. I am day 4 post op and feeling so much better each day.

got my bypass on 5/10! Finally starting to get more energy but I am so sick of only full liquids. My program allows the pureed stage next week, and I honestly can't wait....

I’m on puréed for 3 more days. It’s not that glorious for me. All my choices make me nauseous after small amounts 😞 my plan says: eggs, ricotta or cottage cheese, fat free refried Beans.

Hi all - I hope everyone is doing well. I had my post op follow up with my surgeon this morning. He actually cleared me to begin my pureed diet today at 11 days post op plus all vitamins/supplements. That little bit of egg with cheese and salsa was quite possibly the best egg I've ever had... and I'm not even fond of eggs. I've tolerated my shakes well over the past few weeks, but I have to admit I've become tired of them over the past few days. Obviously I'll still need them, but at least I have a little variety. Now to figure out the best way to manage this pureed diet. Eating 6 small meals a day is such a foreign concept to me. Anyone care to share what you're doing for your pureed diet?

My doctor has me on 10 days clear, 10 days full liquid, 10 days pureed then solids. I am taking in a lot of fluids, more than 64 oz. I has around 80 g of Protein. I would like something more filling. Like yogurt. I sent a message to ask about advancing to full. My doctor is in Mexico.

So many different plans.

I just had my pre op nutrition class and the plan they have for me is 2 weeks liquid, 2 weeks pureed, and 2 weeks soft.

      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?
