    Queensland, Australia, looking for friends

    Upset stomach

    I'm on day 8 post op sleeve gastrectomy and gallbladder removal. I've been struggling with pain but now that is easing I'm finding myself having to run to the loo and somewhat explosive liquid stools. I'm barely eating, I can't stomach more than a couple of 100ml soup servings a day. Just wondering if this is pretty standard? Sent from my SM-N950F using BariatricPal mobile app

    Upset stomach

    I'm vegan so it's not a dairy issue. Strange that it has only just started happening. I wish they would have told me if they did give antibiotics Sent from my SM-N950F using BariatricPal mobile app

    I feel like this too. I have my son to help me but it is quite a lonely thing when there's not an adult to share the ups and downs with Sent from my SM-N950F using BariatricPal mobile app

    Steps

    I was told that I must take one step at a time, as in both feet to one step, pause and take the next. Have only been back down my steps once so far but it was okay Sent from my SM-N950F using BariatricPal mobile app

    July Sleeve

    Physical pain. I have fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis too, I've had to come off the RA meds for surgery so I think both these things are in flare. I wanted to be off the endone by now but I'm not ready. Thank you xx Sent from my SM-N950F using BariatricPal mobile app

    Thank you. Keep trying with the drinking, my dietician told me to try even small sips, simply wetting the inside of my mouth. I did that and soon turned the corner Sent from my SM-N950F using BariatricPal mobile app

    Ugh I'm a week post op and I still feel crap. Yesterday I kept crying. I absolutely need to stop comparing my recovery to others. Everyone seems to be springing about and I'm struggling to move. It's 3am, I've been up for a couple of hours and wishing so much I wasn't alone. It will get better I know, I just wish it would hurry up. Sent from my SM-N950F using BariatricPal mobile app

    I haven't been told to give up coffee, I still have two or three cups a day. Curious as to the reason for not being able to have it? Sent from my SM-N950F using BariatricPal mobile app
