I am six days gastric sleeve post-op and still in the hospital. I ended up being one of the rare cases where I had internal bleeding and almost died about 12 hours after surgery. They had to go back in, suction out all the blood, and re-cauterize everything. I also needed three blood transfusions. I’m finally off the IV fluids as of today, and if my hemoglobin levels are steady tomorrow morning, then I finally get to go home. Any other horror stories, or am I the only unlucky one?
Hi, everyone! I’ve been waiting a year and three months for this life changing experience!! My pre-op liquid diet starts on Tuesday. My surgery is January 23rd. That’s the first time I’ve written that date!! I’m speechless and nervous!! I’m so stinking proud of everyone who is going through this journey of a new and healthier life!😁
Not at all! As one of my other friends I met on here says......we’re surgery siblings! This forum is so great. There are so many wonderful people on here that will help you! Send me a message And we can chat :-)
Congratulations! Are you excited?
When does your winter break end?
I was hoping for something a little sooner because I wanted a least two weeks to heal before school started but oh well, one week will have to be enough!
