  1. Today I threw up for the first time in like 20 years. So I'm having a hard time. I can't seem to get the portions under control. I made these little egg things in a muffin pan. I thought 2 was a small enough amount and it is still pretty soft. But I drank water right after and threw up. It's the first time I've thrown up in like 20 years! Ugh, I feel like I'm going to fail at this. How do I get my old mindset about food to change. I still feel like I have to eat all my food or something. I having a hard day.
  2. Very TMI message coming: I had my 2 week post op check up today. I lost 11 pounds since surgery! My tummy was very sick today So the dr assistant wanted me to do a stool sample. There was a lab at the hospital. Because I was sick, I was able to go No problem. Needless to say it was a holy mess in the bathroom with gloves and a cup. Only to find out that the lab does not take my insurance. So I had to take my mess with me and it was too late to take it to a lab my insurance does accept, so I had to bring my poop home. Lol In hopes of it still being a valid sample I am getting up early to take it to my own lab. The dr is concerned I may have C-diph. (Sp)

    Thank you for your encouraging words and support. I was foolish to think I was alone in this. I had a tension headache yesterday that sent me to the ER. I was trying to stay off the pain meds but alas I had to return to them for relief. Today is a better day. I still have horrible stomach pain when I try to eat anything thicker than water. Thank you @BurgundyBoyfor the recipe suggestion for adding egg to soup. I will try that. It is very encouraging to know that this is just a stage. I can't wait to look back on these days and shake my head.
  4. 1-week post-op

    Hello all. I am 1 week post VSG. I am struggling. Please allow me to rant. I have a lot of pain. My tummy is very sore, mostly on the right side. I have so much bloating and gas that I can't release. I absolutely HATE the chewable vitamins they make me gag just thinking about them and give me anxiety. I'm nauseous most of the time. I can't really eat anything and haven't eaten more than 1/2 cup of broth each day. Today was supposed to be my first day on puréed food and I was so excited. I tried to eat the tiniest bit of mashed banana and my stomach or upper chest area felt like it was twisting and turning. It was so painful. I am not sure if that pain is from the introduction of thicker food or from the enormous amount of gas I STILL have in my gut. I take gas-x, protonix, nausea meds, and Miralax. I can only get about 48-50oz of water in a day. I know it has only been a week. I know I sound like a whiny baby, but I'm so miserable. I battle depression and I'm usually ok. But I feel so down and distraught. I want to be positive and chipper about changing my life but right now I can't seem to manage that. Any suggestion on getting rid of the gas, eating without pain, and staying encouraged would be welcomed. Thank you.
