Sleeved 9/4 Im In Pain



Recommended Posts

I was sleeved on 9/4. I've been very nauseous ever since. I'm also in a lot of pain. They kept me in the hospital for an extra day. So I just got home today around 2. I'm on day 3. Any input on how the rest of the week usually goes would be great!!! When will it stop hurting?!

Each day gets alittle better. I found it was all in the way i turned. Make sure you keep your body straight, don't turn at your waist, if that makes sence. Also, support your tummy when you stand. Put a little more pressure on your belly than is comfortable so when you stand it doesn't feel like those muscles are stretching..

Rest and be patient... ; )

  1. I had alot of pain too. It took about 3 weeks for it to be bearable and about 6 weeks to be gone completely outside of overeating and pain from that. Hang in there. I thought I royally screwed up doing this surgery. Now 3 months later, I'm down 71 lbs and feeling alot better. It WILL get better. Give yourself time to rest and heal. It is a process. Its ok to pamper yourself till you do feel better.

I had mine the 4th as well. Just came home around noon. I had lots of bleeding from the incision they pulled the stomach thru. They couldn't get it to stop bleeding, put pressure bandages on it (OUCH!). I am just mostly sore now.

Where is your pain? You can lightly massage around your incisions and use a heating pad on your tummy to relax the muscles. At 3 days out you SHOULD have pain meds & anti-nausea pills. Please take them. Now is not the time to be a hero and suffer discomfort. Call your doc if you don't have any meds.

Day 3 was my WORST day. I was so uncomfortable & miserable. I got through the first week by sleeping, sipping and reading this forum. I gained a LOT of strength from all these wonderful people on this board.

Hug yourself!! You'll be better soon.

Day three was bad for me too, but I pushed through the pain and really worked on trying to walk around the house. I would take my pain medicine and walk for 10 minutes in the house and then nap because the meds made me tired. It really helped though. I took the meds every 4 hours and did not skip even if I did not feel any pain I was able to walk a lot and on day 4 I felt a million times better.

Keep your chin up. My life has changed so much in just two months and I will never regret this.

Feel better and get ready to really start living!!!

Hey Twin! Also sleeved on 9/4. I had a single incision at the belly button and a very small one at the top of my stomach. I had a lot of nausea in the hospital and was also kept an extra day because I couldn't keep anything down. I don't have a lot of pain outside of the incision sites. I've been getting walks in as often as I can. I'm trying to drink broth but I'm just not very hungry. I hug a pillow any time I move. I also use a hearing pad on my belly when I'm resting. I haven't passed gas yet, though I have good bowel sounds.

Girl, you will feel better soon!

Where is your pain? Have you been walking? Do you have your drain in still?

I was in a similar situation and kept an extra day. Also sleeved on Tuesday. I had a severe reaction to the anesthesia and my muscles constricted and became severely fatigued so I was unable to move at all while in the hospital (other than going to the bathroom which I required my husband to basically drag me there). I also experienced severe nausea and extreme pain in my tummy and specifically the largest incision where they removed my stomach. I have improved since I returned home yesterday, but am nowhere near where I thought I would be by now. I didn't expect miracles, but unlike many people who were up walking, etc. I was just able to walk for the first time today and it was very limited. My tummy is very swollen and tight and my incision pain is almost unbearble. Thankfully I am on pain meds and that is helping me a lot, but I am really hoping to be able to walk a few times tomorrow without feeling like I've been abused.

I hope you get better soon as well. Maybe the 4th was just a day for a few extra hurdles to jump through?!? Aside from the pain, I am tolerating pureed food and Water pretty well so there are some small victories! :) I am glad to see I'm not the only one wondering when the pain will end. Will be glad to feel better!

I'm feeling more like a human today! I have passed a decent amount of gas. My incisions have just been hurting like crazy, but are starting to feel better today. I decided to wear one of my compression shirts and that is helping a bit also. I was just so nauseous. And the meds for that don't work for me apparently. They had to alternate 3 different ones in the hospital. I build up a tolerance for things very quickly. Luckily my husband has been my rock through all of this! He is better to me than I could have ever have asked for. Thank you for all your help and support.

      I have no clue where to upload this, so I'll put it here. This is pre-op vs the morning of my 6 month appointment! In office I weight 232, that's 88 lbs down since my highest weight, 75 lbs since my surgery weight! I can't believe this jacket fit... I am smaller now than the last time I was this size which the surgeon found really amusing. He's happy with where I am in my weight loss and estimates I'll be around 200 lbs by my 1 year anniversary! My lowest weight as an adult is 195, so that's pretty damn exciting to think I'll be near that at a year. Everything from there will be unknown territory!!

      I changed my profile image to a molecule of protein. Why? Because I am certain that it saved my life.

        That's brilliant! You've done amazing!! I should probably think about changing my profile picture at some point. Mine is the doll from Squid Games. Ironically the whole premise of the show is about dodging death. We've both done that...

      Two years out. Lost 120 , regained 5 lbs. Recently has a bout of Norovirus, lost 7 pounds in two days. Now my stomach feels like it did right after my surgery. Sore, sensitive to even water.  Anyone out there have a similar experience?
