    WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GET TO THE HOSPITAL. ...
    I checked in was brought to the same day services area. There with multiple beds and curtains to separate everyone. I was immediately given a gown to have open in the back. Took off all my clothes and put it on. I did put on my socks that I brought and then put on the paper type gripper bootie foot covers the hospital gave me. I got in bed. The nurse gave me more paperwork to fill out then we discussed what kind of surgery I was having. The surgeon came in said hello. I showed him all my medicine I am taking "you need to bring all your meds" i was concerned about what size was too big to swallow. Then the anastegologist' (sp?) Came in. At that time I said I may get sick can you give me something to keep me from being nauseous. He said yes. I was wheeled into the surgery room. That is all I remember at 7:30am. I woke about 11:20 am and was in and out sleeping. Not much pain. Once I was really awake they gave me little cups of Water. When I drank about 5 of them and was able to keep it down (no problem) I was able to go home. I had to walk to the end of the hall (no problem). I was out of there by 1pm. Hope this helps. I did not use my robe or any of the gas X until I got home. I slept in and out on my ride home. Slept for the rest of the day and even the next day. I was bloated but I took the gas x. Felt like there was something lodged under my left rib under my diaphragm. That was the most pain. Part 2 on the preceding days to come.

    Hi Spartinprincess, I don't know if from Dr to Dr it is different, but mine is under my breast area on the left side. It would be where your biggest incision is I believe.

    I was told your hormones are stored in the body fat. As you lose weight it releases those hormones. Maybe, that is the reason for the up and down emotions. Expect more.

    Getting ready for bed to go in for surgery tomorrow check in 5am. Not nervous just hasn't hit me yet I guess. My mom is here visiting to help me and that is comforting for me.

    I am home now from surgery today. My stomach feels bloated and there is slight pain on the biggest incision which is, I guess the port. They glued the incision no stitches. I don't feel gas pains yet. I am really tired slept all day. Doesn't hurt to walk, but it is slow. I am sipping Water when I am awake. It is like you instinctively know not to guzzle. I did have Jello maybe three bites. No Protein today.

    I was told that I can have salad with Lemon juice and chicken breast' and the Protein Shakes. What do I do but get sushi for dinner cheating. I have lost 4 pounds though. I was just so hungry my body was craving some heavier food. Back on the Wagon tomorrow for a 1/16 Thurs AM surgery. Getting nervous.
