    Wow! That sucks you had to hear all that negativity from a doctor. As for your incisions, try using some gold Dial soap with warm Water. Don’t completely soak them but wash them and immediately dry. It will help with preventing infection. Mine started healing really nicely after about 5-7 days. Hope you don’t have to deal with any more rude doctors in the future. This app really is helpful and offers various support. Good luck on your journey.

    I’m so sorry to hear you are in that much discomfort. I would try to see your surgeon as soon as possible in case of a stomach leak or issue. The sooner you see him, you can get assistance and hopefully some answers. Also, if you can’t keep Water or fluids down, be careful to not get de-hydrated. See if you can get to your doctor’s ASAP.

    You might want to call your surgeon and let them know what is going on and find out if this is normal or should you be concerned. Praying it isn't anything.

    Hi guys,
    I’m almost 3 weeks post op and when sleeping at night experience a pain or discomfort like something is expanding in my chest. It comes back and forth and sometimes is minor, but last night was more uncomfortable. I don’t know if it’s because my spouse sleeps with the air conditioner really cold, or I sleep with my mouth open but it keeps me waking up. Anyone else experience anything similar?

    This soon after surgery I would bet that it's hormonally driven. Hormones can go completely bonkers for a few months after surgery. As always, if it becomes worrisome, speak with your doctor or his team.

    Has anyone started swearing more after surgery? I’m 12 days post op and seem to sweat more than ever before by just doing simple tasks. I don’t feel sick, I just sweat more. Anyone else having the same symptoms?

    klm1648 got a reaction from KarenLR75 in Full Liquid Diet Recipe - Broccoli and Cheese Soup   
    Since I have been on full liquids, I have been starting to crave real food and creating my own creamy Soups with straining out the bits of food. I hope this helps some of you who want something tasty besides Protein.
    1 can Campbell’s 98% Broccoli and cheese Soup
    1 package of Bear Creek Potato Soup Mix
    1 quart of chicken stalk

    I mixed the broccoli and cheese soup with 1 cup chicken stock for a creamy soup, then added 2 tbsp of the potato soup mix and brought all to a boil. Once it was done, I strained it and enjoyed my easy and tasty dinner. There should at least be a cup
    Leftover for tomorrow. This was quick, easy and helped with craving home cooked meals.

    @fluffychix honestly, I didn’t even think of that. I do like the butternut squash or cauliflower idea better. Thanks for the suggestion!

    klm1648 got a reaction from Lynda486 in Bladder Spasms!!!   
    So, I just had Surgery last Monday 7/29/19. I had a hiatal hernia repair, removal of lap band and sleeve gastrectomy all at once. I went home Tuesday, vomited blood and foam all day but was much better Wednesday-Saturday.
    Yesterday, was the worst! I could not urinate without my bladder convulsing or going into a spasm. It was so painful because since I was already constipated, the spasm cause my stool to force out as well leading into more pain. I know this is a lot of information but feel that it could be helpful to anyone who cannot urinate, and when they try have a spasm that forces the urine while in horrible pain. I went to the ER since my doctor’s office was closed.
    Honestly, I thought it was only constipation and took a laxative, milk of magnesia, had an enema and a suppository but I still couldn’t urinate without the spasm. As soon as you get the following symptoms, try to call your doctor for help. I’m doing much better now but wanted to share in case anyone else may be going through this.

    Ok, I put aside my vanity and wore my baggy cool weather gear and went out for a ride. 47 degrees, but not a bad way to burn 672 calories in 50 minutes. The part that is really an NSV? While it isn't my fastest time, it is less than a 1/2 MPH off of my fastest and I haven't been on my bike since October of last year when I was 35 pounds heavier than I am now. I definitely noticed that the hills didn't seem as steep, and I didn't seem out of breath. Several weeks of spin class can take some credit, but the weight loss is the real champion.
