  1. Thank you Losingit2018 😊 Dear Jeep_girl1313, I had 4 major surgeries prior adhesions and oclusion Doctor explained that the more surgeries the more possibilities of adhesions You’ll be just fine!! So far I’ve felt great No reflux at all I no longer sleep with 3 pillows, nor wake up in the middle of the night to take anti acid medicine You all are in my prayers now 🙏🏻😊
  2. Hello there! Got revisión to RNY from sleeve on november 28th 2019 due to GERD and hiatal hernia. Got gallbladder removal at the same time. Got emergency surgery on May 3rd 2020 (10 days ago) A day before I felt sick, sharp pain in my tummy that came and went from a 5 to solid 10. Started vomiting at 5pm for a nonstop 12 hours period Arrived dehydrated at hospital, got a CT scan and fortunately they were able to fix me on time, before Any complication presented, like removing intestine or staying in ICU Adhesions covered my intestine at the jejunojejunal anastomosis (the spot where they stitch/unite 2 pieces of intestine) and so producing an intestinal oclusion. I was so scared and in pain. Thank God I am now recovering at home. Any one with similar experience out there? I would love to hear on intestine rehab, what you ate after and how long did it take you to be yourself again My best wishes to all journeys taking place all around the world. Be safe! P.s. Excuse my writing. I am mexican (spanish native language) and obviously my english is so rusty

  4. Hello there!!! Today is my fist day of liquid pre-op diet, I have read and seen so many videos of people struggling through the first days of liquid diet............... "NOW" I get it! hahahhhaha My surgery day is July 4th 2013. I'm almost done with day 1!!! My menu so far has been: Breakfast: vanilla Isopure with Water, 4 oz grape juice mixed with 2 cups water. Middle morning: sugar free Jello Lunch: 1 cup chicken broth, 4oz cranberry juice mixed with 2 cups water. Middle afternoon: sugar free jello Dinner: planning to have 1 cup of Isopure Zero Carb clear Protein and 1 cup of tea. I guess the rest of my days will be similar, any ideas???
  5. Ey friends! Today is day 3 post op. I'm feeling better every day. Lizcalle the drain wasn't as bad as I thougt. I have to confess that as a control freak, I was taking care of it every second (day and night) haha It didn't hurt. It was more like a discomfort. When the doctor pulled it out yesterday it was a not likeable sensation for me, but it didn't hurt at all. I'm siping all day long!! I'm staying at my sister's in law house. Tomorrow I'm going back home. Take care everyone and my best whishes for all of us!
  6. Hola lizcalle! I'm so excited and yet calm and confident at the same time I will tell you all about the drain when I get it. God Bless
  7. Saludos a todos los miembros de VST de habla hispana! Me da mucho gusto haber encontrado este Social Group Me operan el 4 de Julio, es decir, el próximo jueves y estoy muy emocionada! Me gustaría saber como les fue con el dren? es mi único temor... no se que tan delicado sea tener un tubo saliendo del estómago.
