VeeCathey posted a topic in Tell Your Weight Loss Surgery StoryHi my name is Vee. I had my surgery on Sept 2nd. My surgeon was Dr. John Marsden at the Surgery Center of Richardson. I went thru True Results for all of my pre-op counseling. I went in around 6:30 a.m. and was on my way home before Noon. My first hours were pretty bad because of the gas! I had Gas-X strips, but they did not work well. Gaviscon did give me some relief. I did not have the gas in my arm, just in my stomach. I have been instructed to walk, cough and take deep breaths to help with the gas and post-op. I have used my pain meds everyday until last night. I have NO APPETITE! I have only drank Water, cranberry juice, tea, chicken broth and chocolate flavored Protein. I have tried both sugar-free Jello and popsicles, both they kinda made me sick. I am very excited, nervous and scared all wrapped up into one!
