  1. Happy to say I am on my 1 month surgiversary. I have lost 30lbs since my surgery and 20 inches total loss. I am feeling great!! It was tough the first 3 weeks but it gets easier everyday. It was totally worth it!! So excited about my journey!
  2. My surgeon says my surgery went well with no complications. Once I woke up i was in a lot of pain in my abdomen. It feels like you are being stabbed over and over and in waves of pain. I do have gas but it's subsiding as I walk and pass gas. When I got back to my room the pain would not subside. My 1st nurse was rude and told me that I'm only allowed a certain amount of pain medication at a certain time as it was prescibed. I put up with pain until I got mad cause I felt like I was being tortured. She came at 430pm and gave me morphine. It did nothing I called for her 4 times after and she was ignoring me. I was in so much pain. My bf had left to walk our dog and I was alone so I text my sister because I couldn't even talk from the pain. I told her what was happening let's just say that lady rushed in my room and gave me propofol and I passed out with no pain finally. After that my nurse switched shifts and I have a great nurse who is giving me my nauseous and pain meds that work. Point of story: You should not be in pain at the hospital!!! Day 2 which is today took my drink test and I passed. I'm feeling so much better today. Only taking ice chips. Tried to sip a bit of soup yesterday and my tummy got tight. So for now only ice chips.

  12. Hi guys I made it. Lol. My surgery went well. Sent from my SM-G920T1 using BariatricPal mobile app
  13. Doing this surgery is a very personal decision that you can only make for yourself on your own. I'm a day away from my surgery date and I couldn't be more excited. Yeah it can be scary but do the cons outweigh the pros. In my case they do. Good luck in making your decision. Sent from my SM-G920T1 using BariatricPal mobile app

    Scope

    I went today to do mine and I too was vividly dreaming as I woke up. It was the first thing I told the nurses and anesthesiologist when I woke up. I explained to them what I was dreaming right when I woke up but can't seem to remember anymore guess I was still sedated but coming out. I also adamantly asked to see my surgeon but didn't know exactly what I was going to ask him lol. Oh Propofol!! Sent from my SM-G920T1 using BariatricPal mobile app

    Insurance Approval-Avmed

    You need to have atleast 4 consecutive months of a supervised diet with a Dr or dietician, meet with a psychologist who will ask you a bunch of questions about why what and how you feel about being overweight and also he makes sure you know what you will be undergoing as far as the surgery. You need a letter from your primary Dr recommending throw you would benefit from the surgery and that you are a good candidate because of xyz. Must have a bmi greater than 40 or greater then 35 with 2 comodabilities. Sent from my SM-G920T1 using BariatricPal mobile app
