    Thankyou !! I came home and still got sickies after drinking plain water . But after that I was ok . We shall see in the morning how I feel . If not they want to do an upper gi . I definanately do not want to have to get another procedure like you had to do !! Are you feeling better now ? But I do know that my surgeons office doesn’t charge for something like that . They say it’s all included since I’m still in their care This is my Journey to Joy !

    Well I think you should be getting in more fluid than that and if your nauseated and dizzy you could be dehydrated. I was dizzy too , I almost passed out in the shower this morning but I caught myself . And so nauseated and dry heaves . You should call your surgeon right away . I am glad I did and soooo hoping I wake up felling better tomorrow after 1 iv if potassium chloride and 1 iv if sodium chloride . If I’m still stuck tomorrow they want to do an upper gi This is my Journey to Joy !

    I had my follow up with my surgeon today finally .. usually they do 1 week but he was out . It’s been 2. 1/2 weeks . I get to go back to work tomorrow yay ! I am so ready ! Because I’m bored . I am down 12 lbs and feeling great all except for the pain next to my right side incision. He said there are stitches in my abdominal muscles there to prevent a hernia . ANd it’s normal for them to start hurting now because I am doing more . Other than that he said I’m great ! Down 37.5 lbs since April and on track . I just gotta remember to eat slower . I have done that three times nd it hurts so bad you would think I would learn quicker !! This is my Journey to Joy !

    You’ll get there . I was dying . We go from clear liquids / milk protein to soft. No puréed stage . But I did try scrambled egg and nope . Did not set well maybe I will try it in a chicken salad or something Z later . Weird how all programs are different . I can’t have fruits and veggies yet . And that’s what I want a banana sounds so good and a salad. I just want a salad but that’s like the last thing I can have. Like week 10 This is my Journey to Joy !

    Well I am taking liquid Vicodin although I’m trying not to take more than I need I am lucky I guess I don’t have to have a drain. Incisions look good. They have Steri strips on them I’m not supposed to take them off , but I do keep bandaids on top of them . I’m just tired . I can’t sleep and irritable . I wear my binder they provided me almost 24/7 . It helps with the pain . My follow up isn’t until the 16th but bari. 500 class is on the 9th that’s when I get purreed food This is my Journey to Joy !

    Day five post op: trying to get in my fluids and my tummy is really rumbly ! Pain on my right side incision has really not gone away actually worse not the incision itself but the area around it . Like numbing has wore off around it . This is my Journey to Joy !
