  1. I'm 5 weeks post op today, and I can tell you from my experience, it is a whole lot better today than it was 3 weeks ago. Hell It's better than last week. I've started working out since last Monday, I get very thirsty so I take a good size gulp just to have it in my mouth and then just swallow slowly. Usually like to swallows and its down. But it really seems to quench my thirst. Good luck- it gets better and easier!!
  2. Vsg was worse. Child birth- I was pain free in 24 hrs. Vsg pain lasted 2 weeks for me.

    I make homemade pizzas on lite pitas for the crust. I Used to make em before surgery. My family loves them. I'll be 6 weeks post op in a week, can't wait to make one. I make a butternut squash sauce and use all fresh veges for toppings. Toast it in the conv oven or a toaster oven. So YUMMY!!!

  5. No problem. From what the Dr. says its part of the inside incision healing. You will feel better in no time
  6. Samething happen to me about 2 weeks out, my surgeon said it was normal it will last about 6 weeks or so. I'm 4 weeks out and still have a knot. Grant it It's a lot smaller than it was 2 weeks ago. But still there.

    Lump In My Throat.

    I don't think I was clear (sorry), its not really a pill stuck, that's just what it feels like, I only take chewables and sublingual. I'm 4 weeks post op tomorrow.
  10. I was originally set for 4 weeks, but surgeons PA gave me another 3 weeks on Friday.. So I'll have 7 weeks off total. Sleeved July 23, back to work Sept 10.
  11. Is it just me? but I have what I relate to having swallowed a pill and it doesn't go down all the way. And it feels like its stuck in my throat. It's really irritating me and It's uncomfortable. Anyone else have this happen? Thx
  12. Someone once told me NEVER EAT your best friend. So I have stopped, I had to realize food wasn't my friend!!!
  13. @jennrus.. that was hilarious, and I know exactly how u feel. I'm almost 2.5 weeks post off, and could not tell u how many times I've dozed off with my phone in my hand!!! Lol

But u are so full and bloated from all the IV fluids and probably full of the has still. Keep the faith it will happen. Just be sure u get thr protein and water In on a daily. God bless
