what have you been told to do after a Fill

Recommended Posts

Ok just want to know what other peoples doctors are telling them to do.

My doctor just wants no food day of fill only liquids (duh common sense I think)

day after fill is liquids also.

But after the second day he states that you can go back to normal eating.

I for one can not I have to be on liquids for about 3 days then mushys for at least 2 before going back to solids.

Just wanted some other feed back.

Thanks so much

Just had my first fill yesterday. No instructions from doc. He has me eating solids b/4 and after fill. I can tell I had the fill and I am thrilled. Hoping this does it for me for awhile.

I had my first fill today and the dr said liquids today and tomorrow and mushies and soft food for two days after that. Then I can eat whatever I can tolerate keeping in mind that Protein comes first. :wink_smile:

My doc recommends 24 hours liquids, 24 hours full liquid, then mushies and then regular food. I have read a lot of post about people having problems after a fill and having to get an emergency unfill, and that scares me. If nothing else we will get a few more pounds out of the fill diet every once in a while.

I had my first fill yesterday and the doc didn't have me do anything different. I can tell today that I have some restriction though, so I ate "semi-mushies" for lunch and feel nice and full!

I had my second fill today. Like many have posted, I am to do full liquids all day today. Then two days of full liquids, two days of mushies, and then back to adding in with Protein FIRST.

I have a very conservative surgeon but he did tell me I "overanalyze" portion size and weights of foods and that I am doing great. Loved to hear it!!!

No food four hours before

Liquids for the first two days after

Mushies for days 3 and 4

Slowly add solids and come back immediately if I am unable to handle food.

      tl:dr at bottom,
      I could use some advice. I went to see my dietician today (not a bariatric surgery dietician, I can explain why I am seeing her if you want to know). She knows I am going to have weight loss surgery as long as I hit the goal weight my insurance told me I need to be at. I have to be at the goal weight by June 24, 2023, in order for my insurance to pay for my surgery.
      I had a weigh in the doctor's office a couple of days ago and weighed 301, my scale at home said 302. However, on the same day, the scale at a friend's house said 313. 
      I knew I had this Dietician appointment two days later and I knew she would weigh me. I continued to weigh myself at home (after getting new batteries) and I was at 302 then 299 and today at home I weighed 303, right before my appointment, when I got to her office I was weighed and it said 313.
      I am concerned about what to believe since the doctor's office and my scale show similar numbers. I also bought a new scale today and it said 313. 
      The Dietician told me I needed to eat more protein, which honestly I struggle with. she said I needed 150 grams!!  I said are you kidding? that seems like a lot.  She used my weight to come up with this number. 
      Should I really be trying to eat enough protein for a 300-lb person or should I be eating protein for a goal-weight person (mine is 170)?   
      also, my clothing is loose like I lost the 20 lbs mine and the doctor's scale shows, and not 10 lbs like everyone else's scale shows. Also, I have always naturally been more muscular even when I was 120 lbs and did not eat any protein aside from what is in plants. 
      tl:dr- should I be eating enough protein to support a 300lb person or should I be eating protein for a "normal" sized person? AND should I trust the Doctors scale more so than the Dietician's scale?

        I would love to be your accountability partner. I had the sleeve in 2021, so maybe I can give you some insights.

        Please message me back, looking forward to hearing from you!
