    Hi! I may have seen you while I was there. Did you stay at the Courtyard? I had sleeve on July 6th. Great people at OCC? July was a particularly busy month for them. I hope things are going well for you.

    I actually had my surgery done at LIMARP with Dr. Liza Pompa :)

  2. I think it's some kind of ingredient or perhaps the thickness that isn't going down well. I can only take 2-3 half spoonful before stopping completely. My mom made homemade Jello for me and I didn't have a problem so I'm going to ask her to make more lol. I just never felt that way even when I had to eat it for pre-op

  3. Week 1 today! Jello has been an issue for me. Wondering if anyone else has had a problem with it. I don't know if i'm just not letting it dissolve enough or what exactly is going on. It gives my chest/heart area a weird feeling

    Congrats to you!! That is amazing! Going home made me instantly feel more relaxed! Yes those ice chips, they didn’t even make me spit out the Water, I wonder if that was part of the problem! Apple juice and room temp Water go down okay for now. But that breathing machine thing makes me cough so much and it hurts!! Thankfully no blood came up but lots of fleme!

    Thank you! Hang in there!

  5. @AshAsh12 So sorry you had to go through that!!! I'm glad you're home now and doing better!

    I had a little bit of nausea after I would do my breathing exercises. My Husband told me I was going too hard and needed to slow down when doing those exercises. I threw up blood from it twice! I thought I was going to send myself back into the OR :(

    I was like you and couldn't wait to drink water! I finally was given ice chips the day after surgery and was given a plastic container to spit the Water out when the ice was all melted.

    I fly home tomorrow and cannot wait to be in my home and in my own bed! Cheers to us for making it this far already ;)

    I had mine done yesterday and was pretty out of it. I slept most of the day which I guess helps with the pain

    Congrats on your surgery yesterday! Mine was yesterday too! It sounds like we both lucked out! And here’s to an even easier recovery!!

    I think I'm going to start a new thread :)

  7. Yes I am better today and yesterday wasn't even that bad really. I haven't had the gas pains that most people have. I'm really not sure why because that was my biggest fear. I was able to shower today. I just feel really hungry and I think that's what I keep feeling. I wasn't allowed to eat yesterday or today
