    Orbera Placed on 5/8

    So I am just over 3 weeks out. Have lost 12 pounds so far, which should not come as a surprise as I can barely eat anything. I have constant stomach pain and unable to eat most anything. Going to go back to liquids only. Really frustrated, not energy and feel pretty helpless. My doctor thinks I should be exercising, I can barely make it thru the day at work. Taking prilosec daily as prescribed.

    Orbera Placed on 5/8

    Thanks so much. Yes so far my saving grace has been hot bath, heating pad, popsicles and broth. I dont feel terrible, but certainly don't feel great. Each day seems a bit better, so going to try to focus on that.
  3. So I am now a few days into my Orbera placement. Surgery day was fine. 2nd day by far the worst. But I have to say , the hardest part for me was the sore muscles from the anesthesia. Aching so much I could barely stand up. Had some nausea and acid reflux, but no vomiting. I am still on liquids and my surgeon sounded like she didn't want me off those until after my post op, next Wednesday. Tough to get in all the protein needed as I am not hungry and protein shakes are not my favorite. Looking forward to getting well and focusing on changing my lifestyle.
