Hello everyone, i just had my VSG done on Aug 3rd. apparently i had low oxygen levels and a really hard time” sipping “ and most people go home after 1 night at the hospital.
well i stayed for 4 nights.

Im feeling great so far no pain or nausea.
im just missing the whole food taste and the actual BITING.

and like i told some of my family members “i still don’t recommend it” lol and ask to again in a month!

When (what day or stage) did you guys reintroduced eggs to your diets?

Feel better soon.

I ate eggs at 2 weeks post-op. That is when my plan allowed pureed foods so I had pureed egg salad. Follow your plan.

I could eat eggs sometime within the first month or so (don't remember exactly when because it's been a few years since I had surgery), but I know for some people, it's a few months before they can handle eggs.

Same as @kcuster83. I could have eggs at the start of week 3 in puree stage. Just had to be runny scrambled eggs or boiled eggs mashed with mayo. But, yes some people struggle with eggs to begin: they just don’t sit well or taste unpleasant.

What does your plan say?

PS - Congrats on your surgery. I had a lot of swelling too & then my back spasmed so I had three nights in hospital. I found warm drinks more soothing & easier to sip.

Thank you so much @Arabesque! It’s nice to know that im not alone. I honestly don’t have much problem drinking, i’m trying to stick to 4oz at a time every 20min or so.

According to my dietitian, im already starting week 2. Which im allowed to have sugar free pudding, low fat yogurt, and fat free milk. And also campbells soup!

i can’t wait for next week, im badly craving a tuna sandwich! 😅

How many month/ years are you in post op?

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
