I had my Sleeve Aug. 21 -243lbs. Now Aug.31-226. feeling better. Only thing is. My stomach Brokeout with a rash, and its really bad. I believe it could have been the shots in the stomach, or the tape around the incesions. Its very itchy. I was told to use Cortizone, which I have. But it helps temporarily. Plus my stomach is still swollen. Any suggestions please?

Congrats! Yep, it's probably the surgical tape. I had an allergic reaction to it twice when I was in the hospital, it pretty much came from the tape combined with the sweating I was doing. Anti-itch cream helped the best...as did Vitamin E

Hey people' date=' I am 3-days post-op! 8/19 and feeling good. I am getting my fluids in taking anti gall stone pills and prilosec along with all liquid vitamins from C, B-Complex, B-12, multi, hair nails skin, Calcium caltrate among other things.

What's puzzling to me is I havent read anyone else discussing giving shots 2x to the abdomen after surgery. They are blood thinners but I was terrified but I did it. So happy.

HW: 285

SW: 270

GW: 160

I'm new to the forum and 2 weeks away from my surgery date. I start my pre-op diet tomorrow. When I had my hip replacement surgery I had to take the blood thinners and it worked a little too well. I couldn't get my incision to stop bleeding. I was taken off of it immediately. I'll remember to mention that to my doctor and hopefully it's not an issue this time. Anything else I should look out for?

Hi fellow sleevers...I was sleeved on 6/25 and only 29lb down unfortunately I woke up on 7/22 with pulmonary embolism and pneumonia to the lungs. Docs say I'm lucky to be alive. .GOD is good. The blood clot is taken its sweet time dissolving and I'm on my second round of antibiotics for the pneumonia since my 10 day stay in the hospital and after running test after test, they find out I have lupus anti glog or something....lol and blood thinners for the rest of my life. So the jury is still out for me on the surgery. Be safe and good luck...

good morning all. today is my 5th day post op I refuse to weigh myself. one of my friends don't do it because it will discourage you. I have tried on a few of my clothes. some are a little loose which is how I intend to gauge my weight loss at least for a while. we all have to remember despite the pain and lack of weight loss in the first few weeks, remember it took us more than a few weeks to gain all the weight, it's going to take more than a few weeks lose it, everyone is different. I have been focusing on the long term goal. everyone that I've seen 6 months to a year out looks fabulous now , so I know that it's going to take more in a few weeks to get to my goal. my friends....be patient you've already made the first step, continue to do what the doctor said, work along with it and you will see results in the end. ................ think positive!!!!!!!!!

Also take a heating pad. I used it foe the first week all overy body to help with the gas pains. Gas X strips helped a ton as well. I took 2 at a time. I am 2 months out.
