    New Here But Requesting Prayer

    Prayers and best wishes!
  3. No leak test. The swelling immediately post op can hide a leak anyway.

    Day 3 Post Op

    3 days post op for me. Had a lot of pain first nite but really no gas pain. Stayed in hospital for one nite. Still kinda hard to get in and out of bed. Tolerating liquids really well though. Have to keep reminding myself to drink slowly, but it didn't feel uncomfortable when I drank more/more often. Hope se all continue healing uneventfully!

    Isopure- Liquid Protein

    I like grape, but wasn't too fond of other flavors. Better mixed w grape sf Gatoraid in my.opinion! It's really a personal taste. Good luck!

  7. Hi all! I'm a podiatrist in private practice and am planning on eleven days @ home post-op. I am busy @ work but have a great assistant and put off doing surgery for a few additional weeks. I'll just be seeing patients in clinic. Do u think I'll be ok? (assuming no complications!). Thanks for your input & thoughts.

    Having Staples Removed

    I'm a surgeon. Staples are absolutely a fine option compared to sutures, and they shouldn't hurt coming out but may pinch a tiny bit. When I am a patient I will have no preference. Sutures may leave a tiny bit less scar, and staples shorten time in the or by a tiny bit (negligible on both accounts) . Both are good options. Good luck!

    Surgery Tmrw!

    Re tracey, I know some pain and swelling is normal but I question what exactly is going on to keep her in icu? Abnormal swelling? Was there a complication? Don't be afraid to ask questions until u feel satisfied w answer. Sounds like something more is going on, but I'm not really in a position to say. Just my opinion. Please keep us all updated . Thoughts and prayers w u.

    Depressed :-(

    I haven't had surgery yet, but from what I read on this site it sounds like it gets easier by the week, and u will be able to eat small amts. Of a lot if the things u r missing. I'm on pre op diet (before pre op liquid phase). Good luck!
  15. Spoke w my pcp, he works in large group and says all drs there are very supportive of weight loss surgery. Oak street medical, Eugene, Oregon.Ph. 542-431-0000. I know lots of people struggle finding someone, hope this helps. My Dr. Is kirk Jacobson, but he isn't taking new patients. But he said his associates are all well versed in Er. Loss surgery.
