    TPN Sleeve leak

    I have a leak in my sleeve which has lead to me being on TPN and blood infection. On my 3rd week. Also have a drain in place draining an abscess. I can’t wait to eat again. Anyone else ever experience this?

    Hanging in there. Not as nauseous but not very patient . How are you doing?

    Gastric sleeve surgery leak

    Oh my goodness! I hope and pray that you heal fast! I do have a nurse that comes . The not eating hasn’t bothered me as much as the not drinking and nauseous feelings. They just checked my abscess, getting better but not enough yet. Patience is not my virtue. Keep me posted on you!

    Brand new to this group. Looking for like minded individuals. I have made the decision but am going through the process of being patient and walking through the steps. Ready for my new life to begin.

    Just in my first post op week. How long can I go before I can drink out of a straw again?
  12. I’m a week post op and still cannot walk very far due to the incision and I am just plain worn out. I want to be able to get a lot of steps in but don’t seem to have the energy. Any suggestions?
  13. Hello friends! I’m 52 and just had the sleeve on 7/29/19. What other options are there instead of protein shakes?
  14. I want to drink more water than my sippy cup will allow. But air bubbles are killing me! Any suggestions?
  15. So far I haven’t told anyone that I will be going through this. Has anyone else ever done this?

    Not telling anyone

    Did you ever tell anyone? I’m sure I will get questions.
