Okay...I'm seeing the light at the end of the tunnel! Yesterday was a little rough for me. I've been walking lots and lots but still had bad gas pain. Last night I felt it in my shoulders and I was freaking out

After walking more and taking pain meds I slept through the night quite well. I changed sleeping positions a lot going from laying on my right side to left side to back. It helped a lot

Today I woke up feeling a little nauseous but took some zofran. I think today will be a good day. I'm keeping a positive attitude. I was 212 when I had surgery and 220 when I got home yesterday from the hospital. I'm 215 today so that Water weight is leaving. Honestly at this point I couldn't care less about my weight! I'm following doctors orders and i know it will be worth it in the end. I'm looking forward to days to come. Hope everyone else who had surgery this week is recovering well! I'm really enjoying following this forum :)

I just had my surgery on 8/23 and I've been dealing with the nausea too. It is getting better and I am slowing figuring out what my sleeve can tolerate. I haven't any trouble with any gas pain though - I'm thankful for that. Good luck on the rest of your recovery!

WoW! 3rd day myself you guys. I feel so much better and will prob stop taking my pain medicine tonight with any luck. Every so often I catch myself gulping Water , like I used to. And then I regret it big time! I guess I am practicing sipping through my teeth and lips to kind of slow me down. Good luck all, I will follow all of you =)

Glad to see people in the same spot! I think I will continue pain meds through the night and stop them tomorrow. No need to risk a bad night's sleep for me since I still have some pain today. Overall today has been good though! My follow up appointment is next Thursday. I will follow all of you on your journeys :) Good luck to everyone!

3 days post op for me. Had a lot of pain first nite but really no gas pain. Stayed in hospital for one nite. Still kinda hard to get in and out of bed. Tolerating liquids really well though. Have to keep reminding myself to drink slowly, but it didn't feel uncomfortable when I drank more/more often. Hope se all continue healing uneventfully!

Jealous to hear you guys doing so much better than me. I'm 4 days post op. Thankfully no gas pains but can definitely hear the gas in my stomach. I tried quitting pain meds yesterday, only made it 10 hours before I couldn't do it anymore. Wish you all the best on your journeys. Can't wait to hear more post op stories.

No shame in taking pain meds! The prescribe them for a reason. In my opinion, the less pain I have the more able I am to focus on doing everything else right such as walking, getting liquids down, and having my Clear Liquids.

Keep up the good work and I hope the pain subsides! I probably had a dime sized bite of Jello and my stomach growled for 20 minutes haha

Hi all! I'm on day 4, 1st couple days were rough for me. But as they say, everyday it seems to get better. Had some gas pains, some shoulder pains. Stopped taking pain meds yesterday, although I am still taking Liqud Tylenol when I need it for my left lower back pain. Anybody else have this?? I feel like if I didn't have the hiatal hernia I would be recouping much better. The dr said he had to cut the muscle & do a stitch inside & that's the reason why I have left sided pulling & pain.

I also get a burning sensation inside directly in the middle of my belly. What's that about? It seems to be worse after I go for a walk.

Slowly getting fluids in, I was able to finally finish a shake this morning & had some broth for dinner.

Hope everyone is doing well & we all are on the mend!

Traci, where did you find liquid tylenol? I asked at the pharmacy and they told me they dont make it anymore to try tylenol sore throat, which is basically liquid tylenol with that awful sick medicine taste! Taste awful and I think I rather deal with the slight pain then drink that again!

It's the Children's liquid Tylenol. I just take the adult dose. But it is thick & doesn't taste very good but I'm able to get it down quicker now. As I'm trying to get the sips down I think I NEED to get it down to feel better so I manage. I always chase it with Water or Water w/ crystal light & that definetly makes it easier.

Hope that helps!!

As I type this i just took some of the tylenol sore throat which is bout 500. I had the first tablespoon and cringed. I cant believe that I am sitting here still holding the second spoon and just cant find a way to drink just a simple tablespoon. This surgery is crazy! I feel like a prima donna.

Hate to double post, but is the childrens flavor more bearable? Bubblegum I am assuming??

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
