Doing good! A little tired of the gurgly stomach and the pain/weird sensation when I sip stuff. Done a lot of walking today and have only taken one pain pill! I just want my tummy to get under control! It's hard to get in your fluids when it hurts to sip. I did drink an entire Protein shake. It took me two and a half hours but I did it! :)

I was sleeved on Monday, so I'm 4 days out. I also had a large hiatal hernia repair, and i was unable to keep even ice chips down in the hospital. They kept me an extra day. The edema in my stomach was BAD, and it wasnt allowing my stomach to empty. My incisions are quite sore. Only really taking pain meds at ***ht to help me sleep. I can sleep on my sides if I brace myself with pillows. I'm only allowed to have Gatorade, Isopure, broth, tea, Jello for the first week. The I can add in Protein Shakes (which I happen to like). From my highest weight a couple of weeks before my surgery (right before my preop diet started), I'm down 12 lbs. I know I have a lot of bloating in my stomach still. I haven't had gas pain too much. It does hurt some to sip. Everything is room temperature. I need to try to peppermint tea. I'm not feeling hungry, and there is some gurgling in my stomach, but not awful. It was worse in The hospital. Just pretty tired and resting a lot. Trying to get up and walk around some... Find it exhausting at this point though.

Luckily my husband started his own diet that he's on, and it helps not to have to really cook food. I have 2 small children, but they are pretty easy to cook for.

You can also try a warm or hot compress to soothe the pain and gas x strips work as well

      😫 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!!

      2. SleeverSk

        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 .
