    Sleeping

    Thank you for this post. I was nervous about not sleeping on my bed but the recliner. I had no choice but to sleep my bed because my ankles were swelling really bad. I used my body pillow and ace bandages around my stomach to sleep on my side

    I'm glad your surgery went well and I know about the pain...I still can't sleep in my bed yet. My recliner has been a lifesaver.

    Has anyone had swollen ankles after surgery? My surgeon didn't want me back on my high blood pressure medication. What did you take to relieve the swelling in the ankles?

    Mine was yesterday too and I just had my swallow test. The stuff they make you swallow is gross! ???? and I'm also waiting for a liquid tray...I didn't get a good night sleep because the gas was in my back all night and it's still there. I did get up and walk so that's awesome! I love the hospital staff and I just meet a nurse that is two years post op gastric bypass..she said get ready to start looking at magazines for new vloyhrd

    You might hear something on Monday or Tuesday. My surgeon's office sent my paperwork in two pieces, the paperwork requesting the surgery (Sept. 25) and clinicals on Sept. 26th.
