I've actually been hungry today. What's up with that? I wanted the not hungry part to last for many months

I've been hungry too! But, at least not like before surgery. I'm down about 28# and have slowed considerably (I'm at 3.5 weeks post op). My only discomfort is my healing hiatal hernia repair. I constantly feel like something's stuck in my throat, and at times I'll get a big pain (albeit briefly) if something doesn't want to go down. I've had to occasionally sip Water to help get it down. Im sure it will go away as I continue healing, but man it sucks LOL!

2.5 weeks post op. Does anyone else’s sleeve kinda spasm a bit if they drink too fast or sip too fast? I’m confined to a desk, trying to study all day but it’s difficult when I try to take sips of a shake my sleeve is like…no thanks. Does this go away soon?

This doesn’t happen to me, but I feel I can eat/drink more than many when I read others’ posts here. I can take a big gulp or a big bite without any issue for the most part. If I do eat or drink too quickly I do experience a slight pressure sensation but it passes.

I will add though that I had a band for 11 years and thus I likely have already assimilated to eating and drinking a LOT slower than most. For the last 7 years or so if I didn’t I’d bring it back up. That is the reason for my revising to the sleeve and so far I’m already able to eat denser and different food than I have been able to before (4 weeks post op on Wednesday)

Hi everyone! Longtime lurker, first time poster.

Posting because I have an actual surgery date: July 27. Looking forward to this being my new Independence Day!

Hoping to find others who are on a similar timeline.

My surgery was the 27th too! I have never been on a forum before….so, here goes!
Looking forward (tomorrow) to being able to imbibe something other than Protein Shakes, Water, Gatorade, and chicken-broth with protein! It has been a very long 4 weeks! Excited for low-fat creamed soup! Just wish That I didn’t have to return to work next week right as the ‘mushy food’ phase begins.

Thank you !!

anyone have any Protein recommendations besides Premiere (who apparently is having a recall of some of their products), or Ensure Max ? Any protein powders you guys like putting in your Water ?

Thanks,

Hello,

I am new to the community. I had my sleeve on 07/19/2022. The first 2 days were HORRIBLE! However that 3rd day was tolerable. I am now 4 weeks out and I'm struggling with how to put my meals together to get my Proteins.

I had RNY July 20th. At my one week checkup I had lost 10 lbs. I weigh myself weekly and the last 2 weeks I haven't lost anything. 0 lbs in 2 weeks. Living off soft foods and have low energy levels for what? I'm starting college on the 29th and was hoping to have lost some weight by then. My mood has been all over the place. I've been crying and am regretting this surgery so badly.

I hear everyone who is fed-up with the Protein shakes! I bought a 12 pack of the ‘liquid drink variety—Protein20, or Something like that because I just couldn’t tolerate the taste of the shakes constantly. These aren’t that much better because they’re kind of sickeningly sweet but the strawberry flavor is passable if I drink one every few days. They have 20 g of protein each.
last night I had cream of broccoli Soup, but I didn’t know how much to have because it wasn’t indicated in my program manual. So I slowly ate 4 ounces and it didn’t seem to bother me. Does that sound about right? I did pour a small Amount of the Unjury chicken broth Protein Powder in it and it didn’t Ruin the taste, thankfully.

Question: Has anyone used the plain protein powders by adding them to Soups or yogurt or pudding, etc, in order to maintain protein levels for each day? If so, which brand? I will do anything not to have to drink the shakes twice a day. Thank you.

      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.
