    Anyone any tips on what may make things better dietwise today, im obviously still on the LRD, but have read fluids only 24 hours before (milk/shakes) can make things easier? Im certainly not thinking like a nurse today, im definately a patient!!

    Well I had soup and sandwiches for tea evening before as no LRd in hospital for me and had not eaten all day due to traveling and worried I would not get there in time despite being 3 hrs early lol! I wish I hadn't eaten to give my stomach the Chance to be as small as possible being pulled out as surgeon said it was huge eek! Died of embarrassment but the pain of that wound may have been less if smaller. Only other thing is less risk of sickness maybe after surgery? One thing I am glad of is that I was not sick the retching would hurt like hell I imagine.

    I didn't know what was going in really I just constantly tried. It was very slow. Just sip all the time. It wasn't much but goes up quickly. Hope you feeling OK:)

    Or, it could make you bring whats in there back up. Either way, not what you want.

    Hope you feel better soon @SAM55 x

    Did anyone try jelly and runny reddiebrek in the liquid stage? How did it go? I am a bit confused when it says clear liquids but then can have yogurts jelly weetabix etc. I am 10 days post op and scared mainly due to the effects of what I found is milk causing severe stomach cramps. So have not got passed water tea clear soup only as options and Horlicks off the menu. I should be moving on to purée in a few days. How difficult is it for the stomach the thicker foods going in? I don't want anymore of those stomach cramps.

    My dietician and surgeon were very clear that it's clear liquid only - even soup can only be a broth.

    That's what I thought @MrsN but the diet sheet I was given said weetabix, porridge, yogurts, jelly, custard. I am going to wait till 2 weeks clear before trying this stuff. How long did they say clear liquids to you?

    Mine was clear and nutritious liquids Want2B3. The nutritious ones all include milk or yoghurt, even the smooth thin soup. It is very important you get the protein in so if you have stopped milk all together and not found a substitute then i would suggest you speak to your dietitian asap as it is a vital ingredient of healing. I did eat NAS jelly without too much trouble but it only added slightly to my fluid content, and a change of taste, due to the amount, but added no nutrition whatsover.

    Asked surgeon on Thursday and he said before could fill me up and not allow enough room for protein and after could make what food i ate swell before it was digested.

    Pah. Just typed a really long post then it went.

    So I had a blood test last week then went through the results with the bariatric nurse. All good at the high end of the range, particularly iron?

    Anyway vitamin d was slightly under at 43, they would like me to be 50. But most people will the same as me as it's winter.

    Back on x 2 vitamin D with calcium (the double d's - snigger) and I do feel better for it!

    In other news after a two week stall I'm down another kilo which I'm really pleased with. Hoping to still get to 100kg or below before xmas. So watch this space.

    Finally I have sustained a kettlebell injury. My PT was not sympathetic at all and said "oh well, at least its not both arms" :rolleyes:
