Day 3

Feeling a little better today but still quite sore, I was so worried and scared about the gas pains I didn't prepare myself for the wound hurting at all. Silly really!

I'm disapointed with my provider, they've not actually given me any information on how to proceed at all, they didn't even come and see me at the hospital. I got an enverlope from them there but that was mainly brochures for vitamins and food packs that they were selling. I know that my provider insist on 3 weeks liquids and 3 weeks mush food but I only know that from reading other blogs and forums, i've not had any nutritional advice at all.

I'm really struggling to get anything down, today I've had a little runny porridge, mainly warm milk, a cupa soup and a strawberry mousse. I will try and get some soup down later.
I feel constantly sick but am wondering if thats because I'm not really eating.

So even more moaning from me! I did manage to shower today which was lovely, I went for a walk too so its all good, i'm hoping to hear from my provider tomorrow.

I'm down to 17st 5 (and 3/4's) 243 (and 3/4's) lbs


  1. I didn't feel much like eating the first few days and just ate almost the same as you. I did drink lots of water. If you are keeping stuff down, hopefully the nausea will go away. Some people get this from the surgery.

    Hope you feel better. And call the provider tomorrow. I too only got some printouts but was on liquids for week 1, pureed week 2, mushies week 3 and regular food week 4. Good luck.

    I suffered really bad nausea ,I told the surgeon and he prescribed some meds and after that I have not suffered since...I would request something for it...Its not nice feeling sick constantly

    it will soon be over :-)

  3. Like Andrew said, hopefully your doc can give you some medicine to help with the nausea. From what I've read it seems the first 3 days are the worst, so hopefully each day now you'll feel better.

  4. Definitely get some meds - you don't want to throw up right after surgery. Plus feel nauseous stinks. I have a huge PDF nutrition file from my Doc. I can email it to you if you like. Just leave me a comment with your email address.

    Take care.

  5. That would be great Linda, thank you.
    My e-mail address is

    Will speak with them tomorrow about getting meds, its just horrible, like being pregnant!

  6. Hi Alison, I too was given some motilium for the nausea, it lasted for about 4 days and then stopped. what is the name of your provider. Do you have the aftercare included with your surgery? I did mine with WLS group and i have a brochure explaining everything. If you want I can photocopy and post it to you if it can help. Do you know what type of band you got?

  7. Hello Julie,
    My provider is Healthier Weight, I have a 2 year aftercare package with them. I didn't really give it a thought beforehand as I read so much it kind of got jumbled up in my head who it came from.
    I'm sure that they will come through, from my research they seemed really good but I think that the lady who does their admin isn't very good, i'm going to call them today.
    I don't know what kind of band I have yet, will find out. Thanks for your concern x

  8. I felt very nauseated for the first few days then my doctor called in an anti-nausea prescription for me and that helped. For me it was the anesthesia that really knocked me on my ass. Come day 4 or 5 I felt a lot better.
