    Any Nyc Sleevers?

    Hello all, I hope everyone is well. Im sorry I haven't posted hit a huge bump in the road. My sleeve is doing well, but I did have to go back into the hospital for 6 days . I went to the ER with pain in my incision sight and I had a slight fever. Turned into a Staff infection my highest temp was 103.0. I had to go back into the OR for another surgery to clean out the infection. Now I have an opened wound above my belly button.I have a nurse that comes to the house everyday to change the dressings packed into the wound , Its going to be about another 4 to 6 weeks of healing time. I am staying positive and I know I will get through this...oh and alo my B/P is on the low side the Dr's say im not drinking enough water....
  4. Switched over for. Pre- surgical . The firs and second day were the hardest . I did my swallow test yesterday so gross. And I was a bit nauseous . Oh and I had a reaction to some meds I turned bright red I looked like I was sunburned got lots of Benadryl . But for the most part I'm not in any pain oh my clavicle was killing me and I had what sounded lik rice Crispies under my skin ,was told it was trapped air . I was also able to get a cup of Water down I may get broth and Jello today yay me.
