Surgery 6/20/13, True Results in Scottsdale-Self Pay



Recommended Posts

Hello, everyone! I am new to the community, I have been blogging on blogspot about my journey so far but I figured I'd reach out here too. If anyone is a member there too, you are more than welcome to follow me! I'd love to have more bandster friends to ask advice from when I need it. My blog is http://gettinghealthyformyself.blogspot.com/

I am 5 days post op and feeling good. I am getting in as much Protein as I can and Water, too. I am going walking (strolls) when I have the energy. Today is my first day back to school and work. It's hard getting back into the daily grind but luckily, I am mainly sitting all day. Today is also my first time without taking my liquid lortab and I am definitely feeling more sore than the last few days without it. I am mainly sore at my port site and normally only when I bend or sit up too quickly. I'd love to have some specific people to reach out to with questions that are post op, as well! I can also help with people who may have questions about things and are still pre op. I may not know a lot, but I am willing to share!

I am anxious to be recovered. lol but I know this phase will pass. It's mostly discomfort and the horrible tightness/pressure in the morning.

My hunger has suddenly come back too.

I am better than yesterday though! :)

How are you doing with it?

Hi! Glad to hear you are doing so well. I also had surgery on 6/20/13 and am doing great. I have had very little pain, really not even enough to require medication, but I have the med if I need it and have taken a few times. I find that the only pain I have really is if I move in a direction that I should not, bending etc. I had one episode last night where I felt I might vomit after having some pudding. I think I ate it too fast and had air bubbles. Took the Mylicon gas drops and was fine. But that feeling of nausea was certainly a wake-up call. I will be folliwing your blog--thanks for the invitation! :) Continued success on your journey!

Hi, I am 2 days out from surgery on Monday the 24th. I am having a lot of pain on the left side near my incisions. Everytime I take a deep breath, I feel a stabbing pain on the left side of my upper abdomen. The pain is wearing me down. I am taking gas x and using a heating pad and I have been walking around my house alot. I hope to walk outside today but I feel very weak as I have had nothing but Clear Liquids since Sunday... I just wonder if this level of pain is normal for day 2 post-op? I would appreciate any help you all can offer.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.
