I just had gastric bypass on 6/20 and last night was rough. Hoping today is better. I was only able to get down 1 bottle of Water and one Protein Shake yesterday. Was up all night with what felt like dumping syndrome. Feeling a bit better today.

I just had mine on Wednesday 6/19 and had a similar experience on Saturday all day, I've been able to tolerate more fluids and protien shakes since then hope your feeling better in the days to come

Absolutely, All I been tolerating for fluids is Water, protien drinks and some V8 juice, I tried greek yogurt and cottage cheese so far so good remember it will get easier but also trying to take all the meds my doctor put me on has been a struggle also

Anyone itchy on the tummy around the incisions? I want to scratch my skin off. I am going to try some Cortisone creme!

My Surgeon said itching denotes healing and not to put anything on it

My surgeon said I could use Bactrine, but could not spray on wounds directly, but ok around incision sites, just no rubbing. Always check with your team though.

My NP said I could try cortisone creme but it did not do a thing! Its just itchiness from healing but feels like its x100!

Only thing that helps is to not have anything touching it at all!

I just had my surgery on the 27th and am home from the hospital. I have been having a hard time with tracking how much I have been taking in with Water and Protein. Any tips or tricks to help track it so I make sure to try to reach my protein goal? I use the baritastic app but it doesn't allow me to go in and just put single ounces on some of my shakes.

Also, I am experiencing a burning sensation on the right side lower part of my stomach. Any idea's what this could be from?

Simple pen and paper or the phone note app gives me more flexibility for tracking

the burning could be acidity but best to check with your surgeon

I’m exactly one week post-op today! 6/24 I had gastric bypass and, despite all the info I’ve been given, I’m feeling completely lost! 😅 My friend who’s had gastric sleeve surgery a few years ago told me about this site so here I am! Anyone else miss chewing food like I do?? 😂

Hey and welcome to the June buddies thread :)

I am just over 2 weeks since sleeve surgery and yes, the first 2 weeks were difficult. That chewing sensation is what I was craving and actually got some great advice earlier in this thread. I started to chew on sugar free ice lollies and made sure I had ice with my liquids, so I could crunch them. Other than that, not a lot you can do until you're on the next stage. All the best for your journey :)

      I joined BariatricPal in 2008 & I FINALLY made the descision to have WLS!! I'm so excited & not sure what I need to do to get the ball rolling, but I made an appointment with my PCP for 7/19. It's a start I guess.

        I've been dreaming about it for 30 years or so. It's time to make it happen!

      I joined yesterday when I was struggling with this preop diet... 
      It typically comes and goes, the hard times and easier times. I'm on day 6 of 14  shakes, water, sf Popsicles and jello. And I might actually be losing my mind. But, oh dear lord has the fear set in. Not about the surgery itself, but life afterwards. If I feel this crappy on the preop diet, am I going to feel like this forever after? 
      I know most of the answers are no, not forever. It might be worse after for a while, then get better. I know it's a more of a mental challenge than physical after the first couple weeks of healing. I get all of that. But I'm starting to feel scared about losing myself afterwards. 
      It might be my hormones or desire to chew something salty talking.. It may go away soon or tomorrow.. I can hope, anyway. But right now.. The fear is real. 
       
      And this liquid diet can bite me.

        Fear is normal, but if it makes you feel any better, I'm 4.5 months post-op and the pre-op diet was by far the hardest part of the whole process. There will be challenges and a lot of new things to learn, but I can honestly say at this point I feel so much more "back to normal" and was even able to go on a week-long vacation with my kids without stressing over it. It's so worthwhile.

        @NickelChip This actually does make me feel better! Thank you so much! After the onslaught of Covid, we've all had to deal with a "new normal", so I know it's possible. It's just the fear and frustration in this moment that makes me question if I can find another "new normal" afterwards. The thought of just a few more months seems daunting some times, but I really do appreciate input and real experience. I'll use that to get me through for a few more hours! LOL. Thank you so much! And I'm glad everything is going so well for you! ❤️
