Thank you to everyone who responded, today was/ is my first real rough day emotionally and it's been quite a ride. I'm starting to feel more positive, and trying to remind myself that i'm only 5 days post op. I can't expect to be feeling great and perfect and normal 5 days after major life altering surgery. You guys have really helped me through today, thank you so much! :wub:

The food I can't wait to eat is a double bacon extra pickle cheeseburger with no bun. NO BUN! My brain is making the necessary changes. Go brain!

Everyone seems to be feeling a lot of the same emotions. Helps that if we're crazy at least we aren't alone! ;)

I had a melt down over the Beyonce documentary in HBO this afternoon so I think it must just be an adjustment thing. I've been tearful all afternoon. LOL! Not sad, just tearful.

Went to lunch with a friend- got Soup. Came home rested and just got home from Walmart. So physically I think I'm doing great. I'm still needing a good bit of rest but I'm more upbeat than I was a few days ago! My heating pad is still my BFF though. ;)

I'm postop day 5 and I keep feeling better every day! MAKING myself drink everything I'm supposed to was the hardest part today! I

So i just had a mini melt down crying and wondering why i did this to my body and if it was the right thing to do. I guess just feeling really emotional today and gettin gcaught up in the discomfort and all the suckieness that is the first few weeks post op. Anyone else felt this way? :(

I have had a melt down myself today. I take Prozac 10 days before my cycle. When my cycle begins all the emotions disappear. I am fading from mu cycle now but today has been a very emotional day.

LaKimmie I know how you feel I tried watching that too, CRIED like a baby. I was like WTF? My mom came down to help with the kids while my Hubby is a work, she been scratching her head at me. This is all such a big adjustment, it truly is a life changing event. I have been going for walks with my Mom, it actually gives me time to clear my head. It's annoying that it takes 1 hour to eat a 1/2 cup of yogurt, but I just keep telling myself "Soon I will be happier and healthier" I just have to keep giving myself positive pep talks. Who knows by the middle of the week, I may be able to sit through Beyoncé documentary without CRYING!! :D

I was sleeved on Monday the fourth and I'm going back to work tomorrow! Ugh. I'm not in physical pain but I'm not back at 100% and I'm feeling really anxious. I think I can def do this tomorrow. Plus my job isn't strenuous but I don't want to be slacking too much. Maybe I'm thinking too much. Oh boy here come the emotions.

Hi there - I too was sleeved on the 6th . I knew the next day I was super dehydrated !!!! After the foley came out I couldn't pee & had no urge . When I did my urine was dark brown . My mouth felt like the Sahara desert !!!! I ate ice chips like crazy . Hardly no nausea , some gas pains ; but I expected them . Finally after begging to be given fluids as I felt so dehydrated my pulse and heart rate went through the roof ! Then they wouldn't let me go home !!! Finally I started passing gas , peeing & by the time I left I'd actually gained weight from all my Fluid blouses !!! They may have bariatric beds but it still hurts so bad if your not tall enough to get in them all the way .!!!! I felt my incisions hurt way more than I Remembered my hysterectomy incision . Finally took a shower at home today & washed my hair ! Hard time getting all my Protein in as well . Some of the drinks I've tried are terrible . I also used the protein bouillon but added some off reg bouillon for better flavor . My weights finally going down ! For now all I can say is I'm truely not hungry ! Hope the healing continues !!!! Good luck to us all !!!

Hi Everyone' date=' I was sleeved on the 6th. Released yesterday the 9th. I had a very painful post op experience but am definitely on a healing trend now. My only issue now is sometimes I have pains in my stomach where it feels like someone is squeezing my stomach. It comes and goes a couple of times and then will go away for a few hours. I find it comes mostly after I wake up.. Anyone else have this? It's very painful. <img src='http://www.bariatricpal.com/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/sad.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':(' />[/quote']

Those are gas pains , just keep walking ...they go away . It's sore but it will pass .

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.
