I Definitely Regret Surgery.... So Far!



Recommended Posts

i think he shouldve just went back in & fixed it! i dont see why anyone would suggest astent! to top it off, i thought the stent was a pain free procedure & i thought i would have zero effects & would go back to normal. BOY WAS I WRONG :(

I was talking to another sleever on Facebook who had a leak and they went in and fixed hers after about 5 months of it not healing (she didn't have a stent either) but wouldn't before that because they said the tissue wouldn't hold. She said even at 5 months they weren't sure it would hold. They did exploratory surgery on me when my abscess was discovered to drain it but even then my leak didn't show, not sure if they would have closed it then or not. Each situation seems to be very unique and every doctor takes care of it a little differently.

Hope the nausea meds help!!

Is there a chance that the pain will go away, that maybe it is raw from placing it? What do they say about the pain?

Were you on the protonix before? Maybe that will help? Trying to remember what you said..

No idea where I got protonix from - I see you are omperazole (sp). Does the stent cause more acid?

im going crazy.. sad.png

i was sleeved dec 20th. everything was ok until maybe a week after coming home from the hospital. i realized that i was extremely exhausted and always felt faint. it didnt really start hitting me hard until last week. everyone keeps telling me that it will get better but it feels like its getting worse! i keep trying to "stay positive" but how much more of this can i take? i want to feel normal again!!!!

i noticed that when i walk, im like dragging my feet. im so weak and faint. almost like my thighs might just give out.

i also have excessive gas which i think is making me really nauseous. the burps are just crazy. i cant eat or sip without burping.. then it wont stop until i take some gas x chewables. i live off those chewables.

as far as shakes, i cant tolerate them. ive tried so many different ones & i throw them up. they absolutely repulse me!

i do eat but i have to be "in the mood" to eat whatever is in front of me or i will just throw it up. my stomach is extremely weak! i cant even tolerate Soups. they turn my stomach too.

i called my surgeon & told him how im feeling & he told me im dehydrated. told me to get on gatorade for a week & see how i feel then. im going in thursday morning to see the nurse practioner.

the gas & the gatorade mixed is making me very nauseous.

i take 20mg of prilosec in the morning, 2- Multivitamins & 1- B12.

im so so so so so so tired of this! i truly regret surgery. i never thought id feel like this but i do. sad.png

Wow poopapodomus sounds like some kind of party your having with yourself.. it will all pass... i was a fart machine for awhile all the air in my system and stomach was really tight like yours air up with every drop i put in..eat crystal light popcycles and hot tea it will relax your stomach and cut down on your noise issues.))-----Brrrrrrrt lol...in a few months it will be a thing of the past just focus on Water intake the tea hot and popcycles and Jello really are easyer than just downing a bottle..well for me it was then i went to mushroom Soup in week 4 and sugar free pudding..the shakes were impossible till month 2 then i went with myofusion bannana and powder form GNC Multivitamins blended together and my health has been perfect...your issue with strength sounds to me like a issue with hormones or just a badly absorbed Multivitamin try something in powder or liquid like mega woman active from a GNC store you will see a boost im gonna bet. b-12 is good for energy but if its oral its crap. go to the doctor get blood work and check your levels he will issue you an injected b-12 that is awsome and possibly fix your missing links..

the stent goes from ur esophagus to ur stomach therefore all the acid in ur stomach just comes up.

they have me on omeprazole 2x/day & zofran for nausea.

in your daily walk......live out the word of God. His word tells us that He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we ARE healed. (not maybe, not might) but ARE healed! walk in it and trust that he knows what's going on with you. If he brought you to this, he will bring you through it! Don't dwell in where you are---live in what you don't see yet---I am here for you and am definitely praying for you. Blessings2u--bj

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
