As day 6 comes to a close I wanted to post how I was doing. I am still having chest and arm pain. I know for sure it is from the gas. My only thought on that is that there needs to be a way for them to be able to suck all of that gas out of us. It's very painful. I am suppose to be drinking 64oz of water , but that is not the case. I am barely drinking 1/4 of a cup of any liquids without feeling full or feeling like the liquids are coming back up. then I get this pain in my chest. I don;t know if that is a sign to stop. I think it might be because my stomach is swollen still.I fear that I will dehydrate and get the shakes again. I had an episode of shaking and feeling jittery from not eating. So I had put some pinto beans in a blender and had maybe four or five sips of that. it went down ok but I have a headache now. I guess i didnt process the thought of the after pain. I figured the medicine would be enough to stop the pain from the gas. It wasnt until today that I started to feel anything from my incisions. it;s very minimum. I coughed once today, actually a couple seconds ago. I wonder what do they do when people get sick? since they said coughing is good. Maybe im just thinking about this too much. Well god night lapband members.
