So yesterday was a pretty off day for myself. I’m 15 days post opt from gastric bypass and been doing ok so far . The pain comes and goes and there are days where it feels like I can actually fill my incisions. Been on the soft purée food , applesauce cream of wheat I tried smushed green Beans with Tilapia and mashed potatoes.. went down ok i honesty severe 3 ounces but only I take about 1 1/2 oz trying little by little . Also tried scrambled eggs but it was a no go to eat without being able to wash it down with a drink . :( But I have to say that I think I got frustrated or not sure I just began crying and crying and not benign sure why … and I told my wife that eating now seems like a chore and not really have the get up and do it feeling … I know it’s temp but it worries me and makes me sad but I’m taking it as well it just yesterday todays is a new day !!! Hope everyone has a great weekend 😀

This too shall pass. It might pass like a kidney stone, but it will pass.

About 7-8 weeks in, you will wake up feeling absolutely wonderful, you really will. Now a year later, I kind of miss the not hungry feeling.

Hugs… I have heard there are hormone fluctuations as your body adjusts after surgery…. I hope you find some calm

I think the hormonal fluctuations are contributing a lot to how you are feeling. Tears, anger, frustration,… you can run the whole gamut. Things you would usually be able to handle with little or no issue, like the change of diet & re learning how to eat & what you can tolerate while you are healing, become all too much.

It does get easier.

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
