  1. Totally agree the gassy pain is the worst. Today I am feeling much better, .. Had a good day yesterday too! Looking forward to getting my staples and drain out tomorrow ))
  2. Yes on the soup. Chicken broth just doesn't cut it 3x a day everyday.. But I haven't tried gasX strips so I'm going to see if I can find some today
  3. Thank u all SO much. I hate wishing time away but I am definately looking forward to next week and the week after for no (or much less) pain! The gurgling hurts the worst. It's like the soup, or water, or whatever is still trying to make its way through my whole system and it just hurts sooo bad! I have known a couple of people who have had bariatric surgery and I cannot help but think, "How the hell did they get through it?" I'm pretty tough & strong minded... But I just feel so sick. I will have spurts of time that I feel ok but it sure doesn't last very long. I'm going to take ur alls word for it though..and keep my eye one the overall prize! Thanks again!!
  4. I just want to feel normal and right now I see no end in sight. my stomach is constantly gurgling which is very painful. I have been getting up and walking and moving around but my stomach is still so sore. Plus. I am sick of soup and actually hungry. I have been taking my vitamins and drinking water and trying to get my protein in but it has been very very difficult to do. Please tell me I won't feel like this next week!? I am 5 days out and although I feel lots better from Monday I am still very sore and sick!
  5. I have been using my blender to make it soup-y. But I am with u ChristieTX, soup sucks!! I am hunger too! I just keep imagining how I will feel next week, in 2 weeks, and by Christmas. Helps make me feel a little better. I am CRAVING chips and salsa. Weird, I know. I am hungry and I hate wishing time away,.. But I am ready to eat. ( plus++ my stomach will NOT stop gurgling which is really painful! How many more days can I expect to have this kind of pain?? My surgery was also on Monday..
  6. Thank you so much for that^^!! I needed to hear that I was going to feel a little better in a matter of days. I'm looking forward to next week whenever I get my drain out. Hopefully then I will be able to move more and go to the gym. And just all-around feel better. I have been sipping on water and trying to get in my prayers along with walking as much as possible but I am just still so sore and have a hard time getting around
  7. Thank u soooo much! I am feeling a little better each day. Just still trying to adjust to this new me. I drank some soup broth yesterday (my first day home) and drank some of the very small noodles in it but after about 3 or 4 sips, I was done. It hurt my stomach. Very surprising that that's what my new stomach will hold. I have promised myself I am not going to get on the scale until my 1week post op dr visit which is Monday. I am very much looking forward to being a LOSER!!! Lol I have roughly 100 lbs to lose. I will keep u all updated. thank u so much for the support and encouraging words u have given me throughout this journey do far! It is very much appreciated. )
  8. I am 3 days post op and feeling sore, nauseated, and just blah but it is VASTLY different from how I had been feeling yesterday and the day of surgery. wow! I was in such pain after surgery but now I'm on my way to recovery.. I am hoping that each day I can feel a little better. In all honesty, I did not consider this surgery to be "Major" even though I know better. Maybe i was just trying to make it lighter in my head so that I didn't freak out! Also, after reading a lot of the info on here, most people hadn't really said just how painful it was going to be. As a matter of fact, I had seen more post about how this person or that person was feeling good enough to go grocery shopping or exercising just days later... After the surgery I feel like I am definitely going to need another week to feel like doing much of anything
  9. And now I can say that I am happy I decided to do this surgery. My first thought the day after the surgery was, WHY THE HELL DID I DO THIS TO MYSELF?!!? But that feeling is now gone, thank god!!!! Cannot wait to be on the losers bench!!
  10. I am having surgery on Monday, yes..this Monday! & I was given a pre-op diet. Stage 1&2 liquid diet.. For 4 days and I am now in day 3 so I know it's almost over (tomorrow's my last day) but I am starving! I am only hoping and praying that I am not going to be hungry after this surgery. I can't wait to be on the losers bench! I just how I can do this!! I am soooo hungry. I have drank so much water and sugar free kool aid it's rediculous! Along with my 2 protein drinks a day. I just want to know that I am truly not going to feel hungry or that I'm not going to be able to stick to this.. I have to. Please say a prayer for me. THANK U ALL!
  11. I agree., I am also looking forward to feeling full and not having cravings that I have now, which are so hard to control. I went to my preop class Tuesday and the doctor is actually letting us have a small meals of Thanksgiving dinner. We all sort of cheered! But after that it's all liquids. It has been really tough but I know it will all be worth it. Looking forward to being a LOOOOSER, too! )
  12. Well I'm nervous and excited both. Can't wait to learn more about my diet and pre-surgery stuff tomorrow!! This process has gone by so quick... I'm so anxious to get started with losing this weight. I know it's gonna be tough around the holidays but I keep picturing spring time, shorts, tank tops and then I become more focused! Can't wait to lose this weight!!
  13. I know! Can't wait!!!!!
  14. Me too! 1 more week until surgery. I'm excited, anxious, scared. I wish it was here already! I have my teaching and pre- op stuff tomorrow morning and I'm anxious to find out what kind of pre-surgery diet I will go on. Good luck to u!!
  15. That is awesome!!
