    May Surgeries - check in!

    Hi. I'm glad your surgery went well. As for laying down with pain and burping, yes I had that too. I found that propping a few pillows so I had my head and shoulders elevated quite a bit helped. I wouldn't drink anything two hours before bed. Even the protein drinks give me heartburn. I put a heating pad on low up higher to soothe (so it wasn't around my incisions.) Also I would take gas ex. It wasn't perfect but helped. Everyday the pain and discomfort seemed to gradually go away. I'm sleeping with no discomfort now. It's only been a week since my surgery.

  6. Thank you for starting this topic. I'm 56 and my surgery scheduled for May 13th. I feel like I've found my people!! After yo yo ing my entire life, I'm ready to finally take care of myself. I have a technical question. How do I enter my surgery date/type and all the stats that are showing below our names? I've tried editing my profile but it doesn't let me enter any info in the stat segment. Or do you know where I go on this site to read how to?
