    It seems I posted under the wrong thread since I have had gastric bypass 🤦🏻‍♀️
    But it still is the same journey for all of us regardless of the kinda procedure we have had 😂
    First 2 days, pain was bothersome but managed with Tylenol and resting. I have experienced resting for an hour or so helps a lot. So I follow that and only use 2 or 3 regular strength 325mg of Tylenol. I feel much better today (Day 3). So hoping by the end of the week, I'll be able to stroll without having to hold my stomach.
    Hope everyone is progressing well on your respective end. 🤗

    Thanks, Grands. I only have about 3 more capsules from the doc so I wasn't sure what I should get to help until I see him next week.

    Once all scabs come off, about 2-3 weeks post-op, I started using BioOil. Then around week 6 I added in silicone scar tape. I have olive skin and tend to scar easily, both seem to be helping minimize discoloration though final results are still TBD. As far as bruising, I think I had bruises for probably 2 weeks. I feel like by the time the scabs were gone, so were the bruises. But, as with most things, every body is different and there is no right or wrong timeline for healing.

    Post-Op
    Hi Everyone
    I am 1 week and 2 days post op for the gastric sleeve. The first day after surgery was a miserable experience.(Gas) The use of Gas x and peppermint tea was very helpful with the gas pains and stomach discomfort. I haven't had any issues with swallowing pills. Each day get's better and I am able to keep down all liquids. The incision on my upper left side is still a little painful and tender. Overall, I am doing great and have lost 15.6lbs so far. We Got This!

    I had gastric sleeve surgery on Nov. 23rd with a hiatal hernia repair as well. The use of gas x and peppermint tea was very helpful to me. Walking helps as well. I hope you feel better with each passing day.

    Had surgery Monday. Not gunna lie, it was painful after .. but I managed. Honestly... it's the gas build up that hurts the most. My incisions are not too bad. Move and walk as much as you can after surgery...it helps move the gasses out. Today is day 3 post op and I'm much better. Hardest part now is that I'm a side sleeper. I have to hug a pillow tightly to support my belly to control the pain at night. Rolling over is not fun,but once you're there, you'll be good.
    Good luck everyone!

    I had Bypass on Monday. Left the hospital yesterday (Thursday evening). Had a lot of trouble swallowing and holding broth and Jello down, along with stomach bloating and cramping. Finally was able to hold down a 1/4 cup of broth and a sugar free outshine popsicle at 3am.
    Will try Protein drinks next.
