    Confession: chewing food

    Oh gee. My doctor did not warn against it. I will try not best to refrain from it because things have went so well thus far and I don’t want to ruin anything!!! Purée food is only 6 days away so I will try to hold on.
  3. Hey all. I have a confession- I am 8 days post op and on the liquid diet. Yesterday and today my family had pepperoni pizza and I took a pepperoni off, chewed it up, then spit it in the trash. It’s like I just wanted the taste. Today I chewed up half a chicken nugget to get the taste or chicken then I spit it out. has anyone done this? I need to stop, I know. I am looking forward to the puree stage so I can have variety of tastes

    I am not sure if the lovenox shots are giving to everyone. It is to prevent blood blots.

    Anyone for October 2020?

    I stated walking for 2-3 minutes the same day. Around my house and in the drive way, around my yard. Now I am up to walking 5-10 minutes outside and I walked for 15 minutes in my neighborhood one day. I am certainly not walking as fast

    Anyone for October 2020?

    Oh forgot to add... I could not bare the lovenox injections at home. My husband had to do the injections. I took them 4 times then asked my nurse if I could stop them. She said I could If I remained active and walked, so I did. Today’s makes a full week since surgery and I have lost 9 lbs. I am a low BMI I hope to keep going down I wear a waist trainer daily I even took it with me on surgery day it has been super helpful it helps to hold my midsection together so there is not too much jiggle it helps at night when I have to get out of bed so I don’t have to strain i have been sleeping upright at night it has been uncomfortable sleeping on my side and it helps with the ton of gas I have

    Anyone for October 2020?

    I am 1 week post op. So far so good. I read that if you can make it through the first 3 days you would be fine and I agree. No complications so far. I have been eating the Premier Protein shakes, 2 ounces 6 times a day. I set the timer on my phone to remind me. I have not gotten 48-64 ounces of water each day because it I hard with the small sips. I do keep the water bottle by my side and drink at night because I do not want to get dehydrated. I did not have a bowel movement because one of the pain meds causes constipation. I called the nurse and she told me to takes Phillips Milk of Magnesia. It worked great. The only other thing I would add is that I stayed ahead of the pain, taking my pain meds every 4 hours. I was also walking from the first day until now. I have TERRIBLE belching. I have been taking chewable Gas X at night

    Any October Sleevers?

    I got my sleeve done yesterday. Everything has gone smoothly thus far. I have experienced a lot of air bubbles and pressure in my chest. I have been walking around my house and yard to help release it. Last night I had to sleep upright in the bed to help with the gas in my chest. I am staying ahead of the pain by taking meds so I haven’t felt any excruciating pain yet 5 incisions on my belly
