Thank you everyone for the advice... i need to get vitamins into me as I haven't been able to get them down with out getting sick.
Its been 3 months since my surgery and after the ulcers (getting better for sure) eating and drinking still a bit of a struggle but not like before... I also don't have to see the nurses for my dressing changes as I my wounds are now healed. I can say the only thing I'm needing to work on is my energy and to get my vitamins in me. Does anyone know if there is liquid vitamins or chewable for prenatal This was what is recommended by the dietician.
I also went to see the doctor this week and got the ok to go back to work... woohoo! and the fun part no one has seen me since before surgery and with a weight loss of 50 lbs it could be an interesting entrance lol! I'm actually excited to go back to work I'm sooo bored at home now..
My advice to you is take it one day at a time. You will have your ups and downs but as you become healthier. it makes; it all worth while. This is about you getting healthier and when your healthy the people around you will see your energy and your positiveness.
It might also help to speak with a professional to help with your insecurities. I had the RNY revision surgery and as part of it I had to see a psychologist as part of the process to make sure I was making the right decision. I have my moments but in the long run I know my health is the reason why I went through this and I can save so much money on smaller size clothes.. I have gone down 2 sizes. I find this forum to be helpful and gives some support. Good luck and always remember you are an incredible woman, wife and mother as you have made the best decision you can to become healthy!!
Thank you, I appreciate it... I'm good for now. My gf came and took me to the store and I picked up what I needed.
I will keep you in mind if I run into problems if I need to get to the store.
thank you again for your kindness!
She said about 75-84grams of protein a day. I'm to start introducing all foods into my diet but its all a struggle..
I try but I throw it up. I try everything I can but it helps to get the advice of others going through the same.. I am 3 weeks post op so it really scares me... the dietician did say it could last up to a month... ugh... it's like being pregnant all over again... NOT fun for sure! but will take your advise and go from there... thank you again this is all helpful for sure.
Does anyone share that they have trouble with their tastebuds... I can't even handle drinking water. I am struggling with some of my foods and even to take my vitamins. I can't stand the taste of water have to put something in it but that doesn't help ither. I phoned the revision clinic and spoke to the dietician and she said that there has been a few people who have experienced the same thing... and it should last about a month... ugh! Even trying to get my protein drinks down are tough.. and we know how important it is to have protein...
If you have experienced this what have you done to get through it...
