    3 days post op

    When does the pain subside? I just left the hospital. The more you move the better it gets right? Any advice is super helpful!! I've never been through surgery before this so I wasn't expecting it to be this bad.
  2. Has/Is anyone planning on having a real last meal during the last of the your liver shrink diet? I can't do it on the last day obviously, because I will be on clear liquids, but I was thinking of doing it the day before. Is it better or worse to do it sooner rather than later like close to surgery? Thoughts?

    Omg I am so glad other people love pickles as much as I do! I am day 6 post op and wanting some pickles so bad!

    I had the gastric bypass done a few days ago.

    Ugh I am so tired of soup and pudding already!! [emoji29]

    I had the gastric bypass done a few days ago.

    Yes we can!! [emoji16] It's just the tightness and the fact I can't stand up completely straight yet because it is so tight. But yeah the lower left side probably hurts the worst. It's so weird cause my surgeon and everyone is telling me to walk as much as possible. Everyone says different things.

    So would you say that stopping the pain meds helps? I mean honestly they don't even really touch it or ease the pain for me.

    A week and 1/2 post op

    I am 4 days post op and I had a break down and cried today because my head wanted a Mcdonalds cheeseburger so badly. I have been doing the exact same thing, I am right here with you! Glad I am not alone!

    It time

    You got this! Prayers for a seamless surgery and speedy recovery! I am day 4 post op and the pain has gotten better, just not completely where I wish I would be pain wise.

    3 days post op

    I did have laparoscopic. No complications at all. I'm still having some gas pains but mostly when I drink. I'm day four out and the pain has gotten a little better, just not as much as everyone else's does! I guess I'm the exception to every rule lol.

    3 days post op

    So glad it's not just me!! I thought maybe I was crazy cause I've seen so many people say they didn't experience that much pain! I'm hoping after day four (tomorrow) I'll start to feel normal again. I'm a photographer and I shoot weddings and my surgeon swore I would be ready for my first wedding since surgery on April 15th, but now I'm starting to freak out!

    It seems like everyone I know who has done it and has had a c-section said it was a piece of cake! I probably shouldn't have put much faith in their answers. [emoji23][emoji23] Seems like you should be fine! You got this! [emoji1303]

  18. It's starting to hit me and I'm freaking out. I hate the unknown. The thought of being put under and cut open. [emoji20] Any encouragement will be super appreciated.

    One Last Real Meal?

    I went ahead and splurged on a last real meal on Thursday of last week. I don't regret it one bit. I know I have self control and I have been very tested throughout this process. But it was a nice reward for sure. I go in for surgery Wednesday morning. The nerves are starting to get to me.

    Pre-Op Diet Questions..HELP

    I am on day 1 of the diet and these shakes are not doing for me either! Every sip I take I chase it with water. Still is a terrible after taste to me.
