Hi, I just had the surgery on 8/11/09 and am feeling good. I also had a hernia fixed and scar tissue removed along with this. At my pre-op appt. I weighed 289 and at my post op appt I weighed 265. I am really happy with that. I am only 2 weeks into post op and am handling the pureed food good. I am having a problem with protein. I cannot find enough to consume in a day's time. I don't want to make myself full so protein drinks are limited as well. I have to have something in order to take the vitamins or I do get nauseated from the vitamin. I cut it in 1/2 to take with 1/4c. eggbeaters scrambled then 1/4 c. yogurt a few hours later so that is not a problem. I just need to find some other sources of protein since pureed meat is not something I can eat. Any ideas?? I have been using other sources like yogurt; but would really like to add meat in a way I can handle it. And does anyone else ever have a lot of discomfort on the opposite side of where the by pass was done. I seem to get a dull ache there. Someone told me that was where they took the scope down and anchored everything while the surgery was performed. If anyone has had this, please let me know. I just want to make sure I am not doing something wrong in my eating, etc. I can only consume a little over 1/4 c. of food at a time so I don't think I am stretching anything. So someone with anything related to this, please advise me or put my fears to rest. My spouse is too self absorbed to talk to about any of my fears, etc. Thanks!
