Im One Of The Banded Now!



Recommended Posts

Had surgery yesterday morning. They also fixed a hernia. The gas is not too bad but I am having a lot of pain near an incision. It aches when I am sitting but if I move at all it feels like my insides are ripping. Did anyone else feel like that?

you have been cut so yes u will feel pain near the incisions and u have internal stitching which will feel like it pulls sometimes .. just relax all will be fine and what u are feeling is all very normal when u are healing, I am sure if u are very worried a quick phone call to your doctors to ease your mind may help u too :)

Sombra,

I was banded Wednesday and I feel the same way. The incision by the port hurts like hell. You described it perfectly that it feels lie someone is ripping your insides out.

Even sleeping is a task, if I move it hurts and I need help getting out of bed. Good luck and thanks for posting. Keep me updated on how everything is going.

Hi i was banded on Sunday and know exactly what you mean. I had like a pulling sensation every time i stood up. On Tuesday i was so worried i wouldn't be ready to go back to work Monday but by yesterday (Thursday) i feel completely different.

Just think every day you will feel better than the day before!

Good luck on your journey! :)

Your doctor told you no lifting,bending and stretching because of the stitches inside your tummy.If you do to much to soon those stitches will pop loose.Give your body time to heel,or it's gonna feel as if you pulled a nerve if a stitch comes loose.

I agree...I was miserable. I had my surgery on a Tuesday and by Saturday I felt like a new woman. In fact me and hubby camped outside in a tent Saturday night and I was comfortable. We were cooking brisket for a party on Sunday. My point is....before you know it....you will feel "normal" in no time...although it may not feel like that your first few days. It does get better...I promise.

I too had surgery yesterday morning! Last night was tough with the gas pains and I still have that pulling sensation when I get up to do my walking! It will all be worth it as we continue to go along on this journey! Wishing you the best!!

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
