How was your 5:2 day today? in Gastric Sleeve Surgery Forums Posted December 6, 2016 Hope everyone had a nice turkey day Surgery went well - almost 10 hours, and a lot was accomplished! The hiatal hernia was repaired, anchored in place with mesh - hopefully that wont be an issue in the coming years. My sleeve was repaired - Doc said it was like a curled up shrimp, with a significant stricture in one area - he was able to fix it up and get things equalized. When I had the sleeve done in 2012, that surgeon used a 40 bougee, Dr. Srikanth used a 34. He removed an inflamed gallbladder full of stones, and worked on my small intestine to convert the vsg to the DS. So far so good. The first three days I didn't feel so great but energy has been getting better every day. Struggling with fluids a bit and trying to get in the supplements - I'll get there I know it takes time. The supplement requirements are pretty intense - My old surgeon had DS lumped in with RNY with supplement needs (he does not do the DS). I take Vitamins and minerals pretty much all day long, and Protein supplementation is to be 150g a day due to the malabsorption. Worse thing is the constipation - a nightmare, but it will get better I hear. Hope you guys are all doing well.
