Vsg Surgery Recovery Comparison Question - Ladies!



Recommended Posts

Hey Ladies?

Anyone had VSG also had a C-section? Either style (T-inscision or bikini)?

How does the recovery from the actual surgery compare?

I have had both styles of c-section and wondering what I should be prepared for...

Better? Worse? Completely different?

It's less painful to sit up and walk. Way less pain for me. The lapriscopic incisions are so small and are just tender-not painful when I left hospital.

Oh yeah, so much easier. I had a very rough run to surgery c sect after a cord prolapse, and twins, so maybe my sect experience is jaded, but I say sleeve, so much easier. Mine was bikini I think, very low and hip to hip. Laproscopic sleeve and gallbladder out, minimal pain.

Back through sect scar for hernia repairs, very painful, again.

For me, had no pain compared to both c-sections, I had a partial hysterectomy in 2007 and I had a lot of gas and sore incisions, I have had hardly no gas or pain with this sugary at all! I am 9 days out today.

The sleeve was easier,I always felt like after c section,I was going to burst open,a real heavy feeling whenever I stood up. I had twins also,twenty years ago,never forgot that feeling though

Thanks for asking that question. My recovery from the 2 C-Sections were a breeze, no pain and the meds worked great. Just hearing that gives me a better idea of my recovery.

I also had twins via an emergency c section with a bikini line incision from hip bone to hp bone.

My revision from Lap Band to the sleeve doesn't not even come close to the pain from that. Like maybe 25 to 30%. My stomach muscles just felt like I'd had a brutal ab work out at the gym, and the surface incisions had some minor pain for a few weeks.

I had twins via c-section as well. Vsg surgery was a piece of cake in comparison!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
