    Tiredmimi got a reaction from breavsg in Robotic sleeve surgery   
    I had mine the 27th and things went very well. My incisions, recovery and everything have been a breeze!

    Mine went very well. I ended up having a huge Hiatal hernia that had to be repaired and surgery lasted 4 hours. 2 hours more than expected. Even with that happening I feel very little pain in the abdomen area. My biggest issue is I had my surgery on Thursday 2/27 and still have a lot of gas pain.

    Tiredmimi got a reaction from breavsg in Too much water at once?   
    I was able to drink all of my Water while still in the hospital. I have been home from the hospital since Saturday afternoon and probably drinking 100 ounces or more. I am shocked. I have not had any nausea or anything!

    I pray it gets better for you. I think I was really out of the norm because most people do have a hard time in the beginning. the weird part Is I never have liked Water and really hated the idea I would have to give up my mountain dews. I really have been worried that something was wrong with my surgery since I could drink it like that. I dont know why there is such a difference. I hope it turns around for you quickly! Lol💗

    Just had my surgery 10 days ago! I was very excited, but very nervous too--even thought about backing out a couple of times as the day drew near!
    Honestly, the first day after surgery was the worst, not because of pain, but because they kept trying to get me to drink fluids, and I just didn't want to. I had some nausea, but no unbearable pain--it was more like an achy discomfort, like when you have a tummy ache. The doctors were great with intravenous pain medication so if I got too achy they gave me this very cool stuff that made me feel oh, so nice, and put me right to sleep...lol I was sent home the day after my surgery with pain pills, but never needed to take them--a couple of Tylenol did the trick for any residual soreness.
    Really, by day 4 I felt completely normal, as if nothing had been done at all! Just get ready to enjoy a few days of pampering, and a reason to get some extra sleep. Aside from feeling a little groggy from the anesthesia, you will be fine in a day or two and ready to begin your journey to freedom!

    I had surgery last Thursday. I ended up having repair on what they said was a very large hernia. I was in surgery for 4 hours. I had mine done robotically. I can tell you that one of the 1st things I heard the recovery nurse say was they put a lot of air in you. I guess because the hernia was unexpected and I had some scar tissue. I have almost no abdominal pain, but a lot of pain from the gas which is getting a little better each day. I have and still am taking my pain meds because I just figured I might as well instead if being in pain. However I am reducing my dosage and will probably stop taking as of tomorrow! You will be fine!

    I was sleeved on 2/21 & I never had a problem getting fluids down either. So, in the beginning I had the same concerns you do. I'm on purees now and I definitely feel restriction. I'm supposed to try to have 3oz of puree and can usually only have 2oz. Now that I'm eating puree I actually feel relieved that I have no problem drinking because I don't have to focus on meeting my Fluid intake. Hope I helped.

    So I had my surgery Thursday. I ended up having a very large Hiatal hernia that was repaired which caused my surgery to last 4 hours. I stayed in the hospital Thurday and Friday and came home Saturday afternoon. I still have a lot of pain from the air they put in. I was even told by the recovery room nurse that used a lot of air on me. It is starting to get some better. My biggest concern is I have had no problem at all drinking my Water. Most everyone on here says they can't get close to getting it down. I can drink even more than the 64oz they want us to drink. It makes me wonder am I going to be able to eat normally instead of just a small amount? I will be liquids for a while but I sure hope i am not going to be able to eat without restrictions! Anyone else experience this?

    I hope you will too. I am just a little shocked and confused because so many people have a struggle getting the Water in. I don't know if the fact I had my surgery done robotically has anything to do with it or not?

    I'm glad to hear you're doing so well! I hope I'll be able to drink Water like you.

    Water basically goes right through you, but food will sit on your stomach. Right now, it feels easier, but when you actually do get to eating food, you'll notice more.
    Also, that's FANTASTIC that you can get that much water in!
    But when you start eating, just eat slow, chew well, and you'll feel "full," and with restrictions. ❤️ Try not to worry about it too much.
    As for the air, try your best to walk as much as possible. The more walking you can do, the faster you'll get rid of that gas.

    Well guys, I had my surgery. Turns out I had a very huge hernia that I didn't know about! I was in surgery for 4 hours. I am doing great though except for the gas pain. I have walked, and I have drank a total of 20 ounces that also included 1 packer of injury clear Protein Drink. I have 6 little holes. Throat is a little sore but I am doing way better than expected. God is so good! Now can't wait to get over the air pain. My shoulders are really hurting!

    I am a bag of nerves and weak as a cat. Been on this all liquid diet for 2 weeks, but today I don't get to have the Protein Shakes, cottage cheese ect. Nope, today is crystal light, chicken broth, Gatorade, and magnesium citrate. I see now what a difference the shakes made every day. I don't drink the magnesium citrate until 4, and can't imagine what that is going to be like since everything coming out seems to be Water. All kinds of thoughts running through my head like being on this 2 week liquid diet, of course there is weight loss and I am feeling skinny. It makes you think why couldn't you have just done this on your own? Wondering how everything will go tomorrow? Hospital in the morning at 6. Will I go immediately to a room and have IV's? How soon will I be put to sleep ect? I really hope things happen quick so i don't have a lot of thinking time! Tomorrow starts a whole new healthy life!
