I had a revision to sleeve on the 16th. Luckily I used an amazing top Dallas bariatric physician. I too had the ng tube for a couple of days and just that alone slowed my recOvery in the hospital. Soon as that was out I was doing great. Today was my first follow up. Thank God everything looked okay. The only problem I am having is getting my Protein and liquids in. I stay so incredibly full. They told me that Sunday I can start full liquids and that I will not feel as full by then that I had a major surgery and there is swelling. I forgot to mention they repaired a hiatal hernia and i think that has made things a little harder. No pain until today. My mother in law told me that her mother always told her that the 7th day after any surgery is the worse. I think I am a believer now haha. I wish you the best of luck and strength. It is wonderful to hear all the stories good or bad. Don't just jump in. I'm glad I ended up not.

Had my revision done 3/22. The Dr said that I had a tremendous amount of scar tissue from the band. He was able to do everything lapriscopically, and I got home the following evening. Was nauseous for a few days, but as of yesterday I'm feeling much better. Today I get to start full liquids. I still have the drain and am scheduled for a follow up on 3/28 to have it removed. I am so thankful that mine has turned out so well.
