    I never told anyone at work what surgery I had just that I was having a “procedure” I’m a private person and I didn’t think it was anyones business.

    Have you tried a heating pad on the area? That helped break up some residual stubborn gas for me.

    Congrats! I was sleeved on 4/19, had a two week liquid diet prior. The surgery itself went great, the gas pains after were no joke but walking and gas x helps a lot. I needed pain meds the first day and a half I was home I have been managing the pain with Tylenol since then. I found a heating pad helps a lot with abdominal pain. I don’t feel overly tired at all but I do feel hungry! I was able to go on soft foods today so I had 2 Protein Shakes and three 2oz meals. Also trying to get in all my liquids. Overall, very pleased.

    Hi all- I’m about 10 hours post op from the sleeve. Experiencing quiet a bit of gas pains, have been walking the hospital halls every 2 hours. Other than that I feel good just very thirsty. I will be allowed Water and gas-x tomorrow after my swallow test and then I’ll be released home to take a nice long shower and nap. Continued well wishes to you all!

    I’m about 5 days into my 2 week liquid diet. I was not thrilled to do it, but I have to say it’s not too bad. It’s helping me mentally prepare for what life will be after surgery and I’m down 7lbs from my starting weight of 216 before the liquids. I understand it’s mostly Water weight but to see the scale move down is motivating for me. Also my sleep quality has been much better. Also, I don’t want to have a 5th incision if not necessary and I want the best possible recovery as I can have. My doctor told me that he has noticed a difference when people do not follow the plan from those who do. But yea every doctor has their own ways of doing things but where I am in the NYC area this seems to be the norm.

    I wish my surgeons office had different variations of the diet based on starting weight but I understand it’s easier for them to give one diet to everyone so I will be a good patient and obey. And yes I agree it will be nice to see the scale moving in the right direction before surgery!

    I think it’s good news. I have Aetna insurance and they assigned me a nurse after I was approved so I’m thinking they probably wouldn’t give you that resource if they were going to decline you.
