    Health issues after surgery

    My surgeon said just to track it. I have an appointment next week with him I know a lot about it - usually it is a congenital and affects women more cause of estrogen Fact one - I didn'thave that hemangioma on my liver before surgery - radiologist said " it looks like it but I'm not sure" Fact two - gb is "calm" - no signs of inflammation or stone movement and medications given doesn't help with the pain So I'm thinking to ask for a CT scan to check what is really going on inside The reason for a month wait is to give chance to "calm" down and to do a pre op tests The pain itself isn't intense but constant and boring and it hurts more when I move more - it feels like when your muscles are in pain after a run ... It gets sharper when I move around more I'm just worried ... don't want to go on a surgery if they aren't sure what the problem really is , you know .. Thanks for finding time to answer 😘

    So completely confused

    I can't really help with first part - regarding the open surgery.I had a tough surgery lasted almost 4 hours cause some complications. I did feel the same way first 10 - 15 days Also had trouble with controling bowell movement I was on liquids for 4 weeks and understan you well in that mater Also had issues with "feeling" and knowing when I'm hungry. I honestly think you have been trough a lot and you must give your body time to heal specialy cause it was an open surgery. Recovery is longer , harder I had laparoscopic surgery and had a lot of difficulties with moving around - like you said walk for few min and felt like I've been runing a marathon [emoji28] Give yourself time and keep in touch with surgeon and your medical team Sent from my SM-J500FN using BariatricPal mobile app
  3. Hi , I was "sleeved" 4 months ago , 29th August. So far I've lost around 56-58 pounds. Since beginning I couldnt walk to much or exercise cause of the pain in the right side - where liver amd gallbladder are. Talked to my surgeon and did some bloodwork - everything seemed normal. Surgeon suggested to stay of working out and just walk. Last 2 weeks I had intens pain so I ended up doing an ultrasound to se what the hell is wrong.Of course gallbladder stones were to blame and there wasn't any surprise there. Another thing poped up - I suddenly have a hemangioma on my liver that wasn't there before surgery. It is 4 x 3 cm . I'm scheduled to remove gallbladder in one month. Right now I'm not sure is it the cause of pain because it isn't food related - I don't eat eggs - allergic, I don't eat greasy or spicy food , etc. I feel pain when I walk , try to exercise or do any activity for longer time. Please any kind of advices pr experience is more than welcome. Thanks [emoji4] Selena Sent from my SM-J500FN using BariatricPal mobile app

    INCISION INFECTION

    My surgeon told me the same thing [emoji4] I guess I was just scared and emotional in general . Thanke you so much for explaining. It makes sense that it has to close from inside out . I'm just scared of infections and complications . You helped a lot [emoji8] Sent from my SM-J500FN using BariatricPal mobile app

    central venous catheter before vsg

    Drains were and still are the worst part of all this . Just today I was freaking out - I have holes in those places and it is ****** scary [emoji43][emoji33] but my surgeon was helpful and explained everything so I'm much calmer right now . Recovery is good except these incisions. Thanks for nice wishes [emoji8] Sent from my SM-J500FN using BariatricPal mobile app

    central venous catheter before vsg

    Well not really sure about guidelines. I was admitted to hospital and anesthesiologist came and checked me once more - and decided not to go with central line. He said I have good and useable veins. I was receiving a bundle of liquids and medications for first 3 days . Most important everything went well Now heading to healing [emoji4] Sent from my SM-J500FN using BariatricPal mobile app

    Just for notice [emoji6] They didn't put central line - my veins were good [emoji4] I had two draining tubes - not sure is that common I'm healing well in 4 incision sites But those two places where drains were are not quite good ...

    Pre op diet!

    Well my surgeon requested diet woth calorie intake 1200 - as long as I stayed in that range I can eat anything I want But cause of easier calorie counting I'm in a full liquid diet with one meat - low or no carbs meal Sent from my SM-J500FN using BariatricPal mobile app

    Honestly , I hope too . Thanks - any experience means a lot I will ask my surgeon is it really necessary or not Of course - you must feel the line going in ... There is a bundle of complications connected with central line but I'll hope for the best Thanks Mikeyy [emoji8] Sent from my SM-J500FN using BariatricPal mobile app
