I was banded on Monday



Recommended Posts

Hi everyone I got home from the hospital last night and have spent most of my time in bed.I only hurt in the upper tummy must be where the band is it even hurts to take a deep breath,I hope its cause there is just some swelling in the band area and nothing bad going on.I was taking liquids good before I could come home but now even one sip makes me fill full like it doesn't go down for a long time.Is this normal?i am going back to bed as I am the most comfortable there.I just fill so full.I will check later for any advice from all of you.

For a couple of days following my surgery I found it very diffucult to drink any liquids. I think it was due to swelling. I found that if I sucked on sugar free popsicles I could get some fluids.

Roxanne, it takes a few days to get back to feeling normal. I was banded 10 days ago and with each day you just feel better and better. Also, you can take in more Fluid each day too - like the other replies it is usually swelling that stops you getting in too much for the first few days.

Good Luck

Hi Glenda,

Welcome and congratulations on your surgery.

Like the previous posters said, you are most likely swollen. If this doesn't get any better you do need to tell your surgeon as you don't want to become dehydrated.

Good luck!
