    I'm afraid I drink way too fast!

    Thank you for your reply Res Ipsa. I was afraid I should be taking more time drinking my liquids and protein shakes like 30 mins! I was afraid there was something wrong with my new pouch and it was leaking or something. But it makes sense how you explain it! Thanks!
  2. Hi everyone! I'm 8 days post-op from rny and am worried I can consume liquids way too fast. After about the 2-3 rd sip, I can feel my pouch getting full but then the fullness goes away (like my pouch empties) and I'm able to continue sipping until I have drank 1 c of water in under 6 mins. And I can sip my 1/2 c protein shake away in under 5 mins. I guess I'm concerned that I should still feel full after the 2-3 sip but I don't so I continue sipping until I'm done. I'm the kinda "getter done" kinda girl but this impatience of mine could get me into trouble!
  3. Hi everyone! I'm 8 days post op and I can't get over why food smells so good! I was hoping my senses would go the other way after surgery and feel nauseous with the smell of cooking food but not in my case. I have my mom helping me with my 21 month old and 4 year old for two weeks post op. The smell of fresh baked banana bread and sizzling bacon have my mouth watering like crazy. I just want to have it so bad. My smell is so much heightened after surgery. On my 2 week pre-op liquid diet, it never bothered me but now it's driving me in sane! Anyone else experience this?

    Energy levels

    Hi there! I'm 7 days post op and was wondering when will my energy levels improve? I'm so tired and weak and have to muster up the strength to even have a shower then I'm played out for the day. I also feel guilty I'm not exercising on my elliptical trainer or something. Just wondering when my energy levels will pick up?
  5. Hi everyone! I'm about 5 days post-op and feel that I should be exercising. I only have access to an elliptical trainer as I live on a farm by the highway. I'm very weak and tired still so I'm not sure how much I can actually exercise. But I feel that I should be doing something. And maybe by doing some exercise I will give me more energy...?
  6. Hi everyone! I'm scheduled for my gastric bypass jan 9, 2017 and was wondering if I use my blender to make a frothy light protein shake and consume this light airy drink after my surgery, will it cause problems for my new pouch? Thanks :-)
  7. Thank you so much everyone for sharing your knowledge and personal experience! It is truly inspiring. I am feeling more confident in my decision to go with RNY procedure this January.
  8. Hi everyone! I'm new to this forum and so happy my sister recommended it to me! I'm booked for surgery Jan 9, 2017 and originally thought I would go for the sleeve because I felt it is less invasive, no re-routing involved and less malabsorptive. But now I'm having second thoughts because the rny is the gold standard and is known not to fail after several years. Also, the rny has the dumping syndrome which is a positive side effect if you are a high sugar/fat food binger like me. During the 6 month pre-op program, I have learned to eat more healthy, losing 75 lbs, and am continuing to work on my emotional eating. Now I'm at a cross road to which surgery to get. My question is: what surgery would you recommend and how did you come to that big decision? Thanks
