I'm home. I had some complications from surgery, I also had a mesh put in for hernia and scar tissue removal, but my surgeon wanted me in another day so I just got home this afternoon.

I walked a lot and sipped a lot and no matter what getting rid of the gas was not easy. it seems my kidneys and intestines didn't want to wake up.

The upper gi with the gastrique or whatever it's called was the worst experience for me. My nurses and na's were absolutely wonderful though.

Sipping slowly is important, trying to get all the fluids in is a bit hard, but I'm sipping and walking.

Day of Surgery 229 - Today 235. Oh gotta love it, but I'm really quite swollen I just got my iv out this morning and just stated passing gas yesterday and my first real bm was today, so it will be a while.

I get start full liquids on Monday, which I was shocked about. I was told 2 weeks of clears, but that made me happy. Binders are great. Walking is so important. I was on 3 different antinausea medications at once, and I even went home with a new patch, plus I have a prescription for another which is awesome. I get the drain out on Wednesday.

Sorry I couldn't check in from hospital.

Hoping all that have been sleeved in June are doing great, and best of Luck to all of next week's sleevers.

Mina,

Don't apologize. You take care of you and worry about you first. Checking in is great so that we know how you and everyone else who checks in is doing, I personally would rather you be okay and ready to check in and post when you're ready. No rush.

Glad to hear your out and doing better. Look forward to hearing more when you're available and ready to.

Eric

I too had to stay an extra day. It was oh so great when I had my pain pump but once they took it oh boy was it rough! My kidneys were slow waking up too checked into the hospital at 290 checked out at 310!!! I was shocked! They really pushed the fluids on me. I couldn't take the liquid loratab so they put me on small pills tramadol. Puking was the worst! I do have to say that it gets better everyday just gotta keep walk walk walking and sip sip sipping. Sipping is hard. But no worries I know it will keep getting better!

Nice to see that I am not alone' date=' Is any one going thrua alighterme? is they are can they share their experice? Can any one tell me if Dr. Kelly is working with them?[/quote']

No, Dr Kelly no longer works with that group. He is working exclusively now but that group continues to use his name to bring in patients. The only person to speak to about Dr Kelly is his coordinator Omar. You can reach him at 619-395-5347. Finding out the scheme they were pulling really turned me off to them. I'm glad I found Dr Kelly.

Giselle, I'm so very sorry, but there are reasons for caution. My surgeon worked with a brand new anesthesiologist which he wasn't happy about and the anesthesiologist messed up and the esophageal tube poked into my stomach at the same time during one of the last of two staples. Needless to say a tube stapled was a big commotion. A gastro team was called in and they couldn't cut the tube and my surgeon was extremely peeved with the anesthesiologist and point blank told my family, he will never work with him again. The surgery was over 5 hours long and my parents and husband said, oh my gosh, he was PO'd. He had very few choices, one choice would be to staple behind the tube which would really narrow the top near the esophagus, but after he spoke with my family he was able to go back in there and he managed to cut the tube and then follow the natural staple line. He's really a good surgeon, but that anesthesiologist just lost a surgeon and I'm sure there have been some major repercussions.

My drain is a bit draining, getting in and out of bed isn't so bad. I use my spirometer a lot, but every 4 hours I get a racking cough that is horrible. I'm allergic to pain meds except the morphine, so I'm stuck with Children's Tylenol (it's HORRIBLE...one ounce of that is like a brick in my tummy).

I can't understand how I've read people posting 5 days out they ate solid foods. That blows my mind,

Best wishes and prayers for all those. I questioned myself with the surgery day 2 and I'm now I'm doing okay. Every day I'm getting stronger, I think I'll feel much better after the drain is gone on Wednesday.

Thanks Robin and thank you for taking care of the forum June compilation. I won't be at my computer a lot, I think the lupus is holding me back a bit. But I'm following everything I'm suppose to do.

I am going to shower and change the drain padding and perhaps go relax before my next walking session.

Oh Mina! What a mess! Lots of healing prayers and NO complications from the idiot w/the tube!

Have you tried diluting the tylenol in a little Water. Wouldn't take much to thin it out. I used to have to do that when I'd get too tight w/my band. That stuff is nasty! Too thick and too sweet!

It dawned on me last night that once I've healed and am several months out, I'll be able to TAKE pills again! Might have to cut bigger ones up but that's okay. I've always had to do liquids or chew the pills up. My band wouldn't let even teeny, tiny pills go thru.

I'm 5 days out and I don't want any food. Yuck! Can't imagine eating right now. Hope it stays that way for another week. :P I start progressing on the 18th.

Hang in there and heal well!!!!

I'm in the final countdown (surgery on Tues) and I'm nervous and excited at the same time! 2 weeks of liquids has been challenging, but at least now I know I can do it. It's amazing to see what my relationship with food has been all these years and just how much socialization involves food... kids birthday parties, mom meet ups, date night with my hubby, school functions, happy hours, bunco, etc. They ALL involve food. I'm learning to steer clear of edible temptationd! Not easy... :-)

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
