I had my gastric bypass exactly a week ago to and my recovery seems to be a bit odd… let me give you a few examples.
1. Less than 48 hours after surgery I was able to consume 40oz of liquid before 10AM… Everything I read and people that I have spoken to have told me I will find it hard the first few days to consume my liquids because my stomach is so small I will feel full. All of my nurses commented on how well I was handling liquids so fast.
2. 3 days after surgery I noticed even with drinking all of the liquids I was feeling hungry. I drank a protein shake and it took the edge off. An hour and a half later, I was hungry again, and by noon I had consumed 24 oz of broth, almost a liter of water and 4 popsicles plus 55g of protein.
3. 4 days after, around noon I ate a plain 10oz greek yogurt. I was very fearful of actually eating, but I was so hungry. I did not feel full afterward, but I was no longer hungry.
I am now on day 7 and I will see my Doctor tomorrow it really has only gotten worse… Is it possible the doctor did not perform the procedure correctly?
Also, I should note that by my 5 day post-op I was ready to return to work. I stay in my office most of the day, but I still find it odd the way this has unfolded.
** If you are going to comment on how I should not be eating yogurt, please keep it to yourself I know how my body was feeling.
