    60 years young and having surgery

    I am 67 and had it done July 9, 2020. I feel really fortunate - no pain or nausea. I didn’t take anything stronger than OTC Tylenol. Doing great!
  2. You look amazing and your story is an inspiration - thanks for sharing!
  3. I had my surgery day before yesterday. I expressed my concern to the surgeon that I cannot tolerate narcotics, opioids, etc., and even the most potent anti-nausea drugs do not touch the awful unrelenting vomiting I have with them (sorry, TMI). So he administered a TAP block when I went under anesthesia. Post-op, I had IV ibuprofen, toradol, and oral liquid Tylenol. Absolutely no pain whatsoever in the hospital. I had minimal discomfort last night at home, but no worse than if I had done a bunch of sit-ups. I was quite pleased 😊

    Are you cold?

    I just had surgery 2 days ago, and I am freezing. It can't be due to weight loss! The weather has been in the 80-90's during the day, and I shivered all last night with two blankets on top. Tonight I'm getting out the down comforter. ☺️
