Hey! We're sleeve sisters! My surgery was on 5/16 as well. I had steri-strips that came off several of the incisions. But I had abdominal bleeding on my second day post op (from one incision) I lost a lot of blood into my abdomen and ended up with VERY low blood pressure and red blood cell count. I had 3 units of blood given to me. I recovered pretty well but went home with major seeping from two incision sites. I had to replace my steri-strips and wear heavy dressings. The tape made my entire belly itch like crazy. I think I'll try the cortisone cream. I'm not itching over my little incision sites, just where the tape has been.
Feeling stronger every day. I walk for 10 minutes 3-4 times a day. But I also take 2-3 hour naps during the day. This is my only post but it helps so much to read how others are doing.
Good luck to all of us!
