Well it is now official I was sleeved this morning at 7:30. All things considered I'm feeling really good. Everyone is right about the walking it really does help. When I first woke up I had more discomfort than I expected but it was mostly from the trapped air in the upper abdominal area. The incisions actually don't hurt too bad but off course I am still on pain meds but only half a dose every 4 hours. I also had a hiatal hernia repair and it sounds like a lot of the tightness/soreness is related to that. Thank you everyone for your prayers, kind thoughts and well wishes. I've learned a lot of valuable information from all of you that is going to make this journey so much more Enlightened and rewarding.

I travel for work and had the same problem. First I tried taking the ready mades - they were so heavy, so now I get the ziplock snack sized bags and pre measure each serving (two scoops per bag). Then I put all the snack bags into a larger baggie and seal it. Light, small and ready to go!

I take different flavors. Choc, banana, etc. so different colors and I also keep a shaker bottle in my bag, all contributing evidence.....no problems so far, even when I travel to the Middle Est!

I'm on the losers bench! About 7:00 am yesterday I was sleeved. I feel like a train ran over me! Its been one horrible first night. I have not been passing gas or burping. I just feel like my insides are fire.

I felt the same way yesterday until I started walking. Everything feels better when I'm up. I really hope you feel better soon :-). Keep your chin up!

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
