  3. Chapstick! You’re mouth and lips get really dry from the surgery and not drinking. I brought a robe to cover up when taking my walks.
  4. Hi Everyone! Just found this forum and am loving the content.  I just had a VSG on May 8th.  I am doing great! Have been able to get my protein drinks in and all my required fluids.  I was pretty sore up until a few days ago, especially on my left side abdomen.  The problem I’m dealing with now is the reaction I had to the bandaids! My belly itches! Using ice to calm it is working pretty well.  I have my first post-op appointment on the 23rd.  Last, but not least, I am down 18 lbs!!!
