  1. Hi Vickey. Welcome to the forums and congratulations on your susrgery date tomorrow. I'm sure you will do just fine. The first week can be a little uncomfortable but for the part everyone sails through it pretty quickly. I'm one of the few who developed a blood clots as result of the IV used during surgery. I don't think it's real common but just one of those things that can happen from surgery. After I was home from having my sleeve I noticed a lump on my arm about 5 inches above the area where they had put my IV. It became very sore and bruised feeling and I ended up in the ER only to discover I had blood clots all the way from my wrist to my elbow.
