I had a Roux-en-Y on Dec. 12th, 2007. (Nine days ago!) The surgery went well. I made it a point to get up and walk every 2 hours. Friday Dec. 14th I came home & was on a full liquid diet.
Knowing that protein is so important, I made it a point to have at least 30 grams a day. I put myself on a schedule that dictated 1 ounce of fluid every 15 minutes.
I seemed to be doing fine until Saturday, when I passed what is called 'coffee grounds'. Tuesday I was back in the hospital passing huge amounts of blood clots.
There was a bleed that, after several tests, still couldn't be located. As days went on things got better. I came home today with no indication of blood in my stool.
I'm hoping this crisis is over.
Amazingly enough, I'm not hungry but still crave food.
