December Surgeries?



Recommended Posts

So, I had my sleeve done on the 13th and everything went well. I came home and filled my prescriptions and after a few days I noticed that my vision had gotten extremely blurry (I have never worn glasses aand have always had good vision) and could not see anything on my phone. My step dad is a pharmacist and he said a lot of the meds I was on could cause blurry vision especially the patch. Since I was about 5 days post op I decided to try and stop my meds to see if it helped and after about 36 hours my vision had returned. Yay! However I noticed that my vision stills gets kind of blurry and isn't as good as it was prior to my surgery. Anyone else experiencing this?

It personally didn't happen to me but I know people have posted about this before. Maybe try a search? Good luck. Hope it gets better for you

I was sleeved 12/10 & I'm miserable! I was supposed to be on full liquids but can't swallow them with out them feeling like they get stuck, so had to switch back to Clear Liquids. My main incision site hurts very bad & I honestly have had moments I've regretted doing this.. I hope I get to where others are soon because this is awful! :(

I understand and feel your pain. I was sleeved on 12/20/12. I am still in pain. I do regret this surgery. I hope it gets better for both of us:

Hi everyone, I was sleeved on December 18th and feel terrific. I only had pain one day, but today I have a little heartburn and a stuck feeling (I hope it's gas)....I am glad everyone seems to be doing well, one day at a time is what we have to do.

Hi fellow December sleevers! I was sleeved on 12/19 and I'm feeling much better. I feel a twinge of pain when I laugh or sneeze, but not as bad as a week ago. I'm returning to normal activity, but I had to take a nap this afternoon. I guess I looked tired since my DH insisted on me getting some rest. Yesterday I walked just over 3/4 of a mile (at my own pace of course) and tried to shoot some basketballs with my 8-yr old. That lasted for all of 5 minutes...

Anyway, I'm excited for what the future holds and I'm glad I'm on the losers' bench. I like how someone here said that this decision was a gift to myself and by extension my loved ones! Cheers and congrats to all for taking this important and critical step forward to longer, healthier and skinnier lives!

Apparently ok according to my doctor. liquid is not going down unless it is Water with lemon, I am at a loss here I'm not sure what us normal.

Itsmelee, add unflavored Unjury to your liquids (not water) to get your Proteins in. I've been adding 1-1.5 scoops and crystal light to my Water and it tastes great. You'll have to order it online. Each scoop is 21 g of Protein. Good luck!

      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.
