    hello girlfriend! How goes it today? .........I ate some green bean casserole last night... it was ok. lots of soup. Today cream of potato soup mixed with lactose free milk seems to be going down ok. I haven't tried the salad............I'll be waiting till the three month........I'm just too afraid. I wonder if I'd like tuna? I had a little left over turkey in some chicken broth, but I am finding I'm still only at 2 oz for my stomach.......Can't wait till this stretches a little, and I wanna BURP! can't do that yet..........

    I've been reading and watching you and also your visitors! So, did we have the surgery on the 9th? I had mine on the 7th. I'm finally starting to feel more human, after 18 days............the first two weeks were grueling for me. Couldn't get down anything but a popsicle. Day by day I'm handling more and more things............and trying more things than ever. I actually tried cottage cheese for the first time in my life! NOT BAD!! ............AND vegetable soup yesterday.........I'm typically a meat/potatoes girl. But I'm digging on veggies!

    update you, love to know how you are!

    A few times I would have some pain after swallowing but not often. Your's is probably that you still have gas moving around and its not all gone yet. I noticed I was probably on day four or five before I FINALLY got rid of all the gas. I just kept walking, walking, walking as much as I could to move everything around. After four or five days it seemed to settle down and I didn't have the pain after I drank or ate. I do notice even now if I eat too fast or drink too fast I will have pain. Like right now...I just ate a little cup of the sugar free jello and I ate it too fast. I'm having a "wave" of pain that comes and goes. I know it was from eating too fast. I feel so good I tend to forget and I start eating like before. I have got to remember to SLOW DOWN. I hope you will start feeling better. Today is day 9 for me and I feel GREAT!! Had my post-op visit with my surgeon today and he said I was doing wonderful. Down 16 pounds. I can't tell you how much better it gets. Every day it just improves more and you will find what you drink and eat today that gives you a problem won't so much the next time you try. Slow and easy has done wonders for me!

Sleeved or not sleeved:
I have had a gastric sleeve.
I have been overweight most of my life. I wanted to have gastric surgery many years ago but was scared to have my intestines rerouted. So after my insurance started paying for the surgeries I decided on finally going through with the surgery. I have done everything that my Dr says is necessary to send it to my insurance for approval... I am just waiting on the approval. I hope it will be soon! I am about 160 lbs overweight and need to lose weight for my 2 kids!

is it ok to speed up my type of foods?

by LadyBug36 on 12-26-2011 at 10:22 PM
I was tollerating soups very well so I went to puree pretty good. Now I have gone to regular foods.. somewhat.. and can tollerate them as long as I chew them very very good. I had some plane tuna on a wheat thin today for lunch and done pretty good. Its been 17 days since surgery and I have done really well. I have lost 33 pounds. I just wonder if I may have speeded things up too much? Any suggestions?

What types of exercise is best?

by LadyBug36 on 12-21-2011 at 07:29 PM
What type of exercises is best for us to lose weight? I Have tried walking and of course thats my favorite. The only thing is I don't have a treadmil and it has rained so much since I got out of the hospital. I so want to just go out and walk walk walk.. I actually feel like walking! Which is so different from before.. All I wanted to do was sit on the couch and watch TV.

Tired of this clear liquid diet!

by LadyBug36 on 12-07-2011 at 08:26 PM
I am so tired of this clear liquid diet.. I have been on liquids for 16 days! I have been on clear liquids for 9 of those days. I absolutely hate beef broth and chicken broth! I use to like it but thats all I can have. I even began hating jello. I know this is all necessary and I only have tomorrow to eat my last bit of broth and then my surgery on Friday! I can hardly wait! This is going to be the best thing I have ever done! I guess I just needed to let this out. My friends don't really understand.

How bad is the pain after you wake from surgery?

by LadyBug36 on 12-05-2011 at 08:41 PM
I am having my surgery on Friday and am trying to prepare myself for just how bad I will hurt. My doctor doesn't give a pain pump so it will be whatever thru the iv for the first day. Is it as bad as I imagine? Explain as much as possible please? Thanks everyone!
