  1. Still having burning/ripping pain to the left of my belly button when I move wrong/laugh. Anyone else experiencing this?

  3. Came across your post. This is exactly what I’m going through. Dr said it was normal, but doesn’t happen to everyone. Has it subsided for you? I don’t know how much longer I can tolerate this. It gets unbearable when I move the wrong way.

  5. Yes! Like apple cider vinegar. Had my first bm today. 4 days and a few hours post op. Dropped right at 10lbs so far. It was an ....interesting..... bm experience.

  7. 2oz in 15 minutes. Ok that makes more sense. I thought they meant per meal. Like only have 2oz of your protein shake for breakfast. Basically just spread it out over a longer time period

  9. I had a low grade fever as well the first two days. Dr said it was normal. Your body underwent a major operation. Low grade fever is your immune system doing it’s job. As long as it doesn’t get high and you keep pushing fluids, you’ll be fine.

  11. So I am confused. My plan says no more than 2-5oz of liquid at a time, but I need to get at least 64 ounces of liquids down including my 45-60 grams of protein. How do I only have 2 ounces at a time but also meet my goals? Anyone else having this confusion?

  13. Day 3 post surgery. Feeling pretty good. Having pain to the left of my belly button, about 2 inches below the big incision. Feels like a burning/searing pain when I engage my stomach muscles. Trying to take it easy. Focusing on liquids and protein. Started on full liquids this morning. The premier caramel tasted like the best thing in the world after all that broth. Question for all the post sleevers, how much do you aim to walk each day? I’m trying g to get up at least once an hour for at least 10 minutes. I live on the third floor, so walking outside right now isn’t an option.
