    I actually don't think I had that much trouble with gas. I had some bad pain in my chest and shoulder the first night that I think must have been gas though. They didn't ever make me get up and walk. I thought that was very important but they didn't seem that concerned with that. Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app

    I have no idea? Just that there were adhesions from that surgery so long ago and that he removed them. I don't know what causes adhesions or if they always occur? And thanks, I hope tomorrow is much better too! Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Wow, so glad that helped! Why wouldn't you recommend it if it worked so well for you? Lol. I am 2 days post op and haven't had ANY nausea except when I was in recovery. However, I have been in soo much pain! Like all over, like I've been hit by a truck and any time I go to move, it really hurts. It does get better, once I am moving around but still!! I wasn't expecting this. I think today is a tiny bit better than yesterday. I'm really hoping tomorrow will be noticeably better! I have 6 incisions and apparently he worked on me for 2 extra hours, removing adhesions from when I had my tubes tied 17 years ago after giving birth. Maybe that's why so much pain?? But on a positive note, I have no problem keeping things down at all, I can drink water, protein shake. I can slurp applesauce and pudding. I don't gulp or anything, I sip and take things slow but I don't have pain with it or any type of nausea. Or get any type of full, I gotta stop feeling. I don't remember reading that anywhere so I'm thinking is this normal?? Ay yi yi! [emoji33] Lol Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Hey, why did you have to stay in the hospital so long? I am day 2 post op, came home yesterday evening. The doctor was planning on keeping me another night because he reviewed my swallow test scans and said my small bowel or something looked stunned so they wanted to make sure I'd be able to take down liquids but I told him I already was, with no trouble. So he said if I felt up to it, I could go ahead and go home. I just knew I would sleep better and just be more comfortable in my own home. It's been rough though. I honestly didn't expect to hurt so much. All over!! And to hurt with any movement. [emoji20] Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Just saw this thread... I have a wife as well! I just had bypass surgery 2 days ago and my wife is scheduled for 11/20. We had a bit of arguing at first over who would go first, over cheating on the liquid preop diet... lol. But glad that we will be there in the same boat with each other, knowing what's going on from first hand experience and being each other's accountability partner. I know if we weren't both doing this... we would have serious problems in our relationship! There would be a lot of fighting. Sad but probably true in my case.

    Hope your appointment goes really well and you find out everything you need to know while you're there today! Its FINALLY my big day!! And of course I woke up extra hungry and can't even have a stupid protein shake 😞 LOL I will make myself some black coffee I guess. Have to be at the hospital at 1130... will get there and tell them I'm ready for some drugs! So freaking anxious, woke up like every 2 hours after I finally fell asleep! Hope everyone has a wonderful day today! 😊

    That is great that you have pretty much reached your first weight loss goal! Congrats!! And sorry you're having to go through the misery of waiting and not knowing more info regarding your surgery date. I really hope you find out something when you go in to the office. Well I am feeling so anxious I can hardly stand it! Just ready to get it over with! But tomorrow is the big day and I keep telling me that today will go by quickly. Trying to keep busy at work and not think tooooo much about surgery! Finally found out this morning that I am supposed to report to the hospital at 11:30 am. Wish I could be first pt of the day but oh well. I doubt I will even sleep tonight! LOL Hope everyone has a fabulous day!

    Are you taking B12? I have some sublingual ones to start taking daily after my surgery. Hopefully that will help with energy some. Glad I decided to take 5 weeks off work cause I walk my butt off every day! I average 10K steps in my work day and around 12-13K by the time I go to bed! Gonna need time to build back up...
