    So I am 3 days post op... and yesterday was awful!!! I knew i needed a small hernia repair... but it was actually a large hernia!! Dr said he had to pull my stomach out of my diaphragm and reposition my esophagus and then stitch everything in place.
    I kept liquids down just fine in the hospital... but when the good surgery drugs wore off... the nausea was uncontrollable and everything made me vomit, including the pain and nausea meds. Call the dr office and they said i may need to go to the er... i told them i just needed something to control the nausea and the vomiting would stop. They called in liquid med and it worked.
    Today was soooo much better. I never really had the gas pain, but i could keep the pain meds down to control the incision pain and the hernia repair pain. I got about half my liquid and half my Protein in... so i will take it!!

    4 days since my sleeve - doing pretty good at getting my Protein in (60g) and decently on Water (64oz is my goal, yesterday only managed 30 but better the day prior).

    only real problem is with the surgical gas - it’s worse than with my hysterectomy (which was rough for 2 days). Last night the pain was so bad in my side that I was in tears (i don’t tend toward the dramatic, it honestly feels as if someone was twisting my muscles on my left side). I have taken every possible step - walking lots, gasx, heating pad, etc. Research shows Most clears out by day 3, but I am day 4 and it only changed sides 😩
    On the positive side, I am down 6.6 lb 😊. Sending good wishes out to you all!

    I get migraines... so my dietitian told me I can still drink a cup of regular coffee in the mornings to keep them at bay without medication.

    Omg just checked my insurance website. I was approved!! I am so excited!!! Began this journey in June 2019. Surgery delayed due to covid19. NYC was hit so hard. My main focus was to stay safe despite normal feelings of disappointment. Surgery 6/29/2020. I am sooooooo delighted. The time is always right.




    Also just for context, Mypaperwork was submitted on Monday, took 2 days to be approved.

    Yes. It is supposed to be more accurate and cause less pain after surgery. The dr is looking through a very hd screen and controlling robotic arms

    Hi Gang! Well, my surgery is at 1:45 tomorrow! (unless I get a call saying it's moved earlier). Today is bag packing day and setting things up for my friend to care for my kiddo while hubs and I are in the hospital. So relieved he can stay with me. Worried last night about a possible UTI. I get 2-3 a year. Took an at-home test this morning and it was negative thank goodness. But feeling the twinges. Wondering what happens if you get one right after catheter? Never had one and hear they can cause them. Particularly in those prone. Anyway, maybe just irritation from the 90 ozs of drinkable Protein I'm guzzling each day? Hoping nothing gets in the way of getting this DONE. Sending allllllll the good stuff out to you guys!!! And I'll take some in return. ONWARD!!!!

    I am currently in recovery. Everything went smoothly. I have some tummy pains but it's not unbearable. I wanted to get up and potty a half hour after surgery. It was tough then, especially trying to wipe myself, but it's getting easier. About to walk around in circles in my room to try and get more of this gas out (hoping that will help with the tummy pain)
  21. Congrats!

    I’m back and alive guys! But man, not smooth sailing!
    I had my sleeve done at 730am yesterday. Got to my room and felt great. Got some Fluid and Protein in with no problem, and walked walked walked.
    Around 5pm I started feeling terrible. Sharp pain in my shoulder an left side, straight down from my armpit. Pain meds wouldn’t touch it. Everyone kept saying it was just gas pains, but I was dubious. I couldn’t even breathe without these stabbing pains through my chest.
    At midnight my nurse came in to help me go to the bathroom, and I straight up blacked out and fell. Didn’t get hurt at all thankfully, but was told to take it very easy. This morning my nurses tried to help again, first by having me sit on the edge of the bed. Blacked out, hearing went, totally weird and scary.
    My labs were all over the place, super low blood pressure, and my heart was racing even laying down, so my surgeon suspected a GI bleed. CT confirmed it, but didn’t show where the bleed was.
    Back under the knife just a few hours ago, Wherever the GI bleed was, it had stopped on its own, but they suctioned 1500 cc’s (almost 50 ounces) of blood out of my abdominal cavity. I also got a blood transfusion. I feel brand new. Labs are coming back good, heart has slowed down. Whew! What a wild ride.
    But I tell ya I’ve been living off of ice chips and Water for 2 days, and I haven’t had one single hunger pain. Looking forward to getting out of here.
    Don’t let my story freak you out! My surgeon has done 6000 surgeries and said about .025% of his patients have complications. I’d still do it again even knowing what was lying ahead for me.

    Everyone is different but I had very little pain but had a blast Getting Morphine hits every three hours! Really did not need them but was having fun getting stoned and seeing elvis for the 30 hours. I have seen most people have little pain just discomfort, I used a CBD cream on the slits that really helped but never needed any pain meds
    Good luck you got this - NO PAIN NO GAIN
