I'm so sorry you're going through all that! I was also sleeved 5/22 and had a few regrets myself - even without complications. Up until today, I couldn't swallow a sip without pain. That's finally going away. But day 2 I really wished I hadn't done this to myself. I still sort of feel that way when I'm hungry and all I can have is clear fluids or Protein Shakes - sooooo sick of all that. Keip your head up and I hope thing are better for you soon.

I've experienced chest pains fever and kidney infection...

I have a double kidney infection and complications with my spleen... Today my blood pressure was 90\45 I've never been that low so I'm very anxious...

I am really focusing on my Water first so I don't get dehydrated which is also bad for kidneys. I have started mixing Isopure clear Protein Drinks with water for a 2 for 1 combo. It's really hard in the first several days, I know. I'm feeling a little better each day - getting a little more in than the day before.

Isopure saved me the first week post op! It's not the best tasting stuff but it covers proteina and fluids. I promise it gets better. I had a problem with my spleen during my surgery. It started bleeding and I lost 1300ml's of blood and had to get a blood transfusion. It freaked me out that I really could have bled to death on the table but I'm 6 weeks post op now and feeling great. Straight Water is still a little rough to get down so I drink lots of Vitamin water zero. Focus on your fluids and every day you will feel better!

Hang in there it does get better.. I have not had any complications at all.. Im post op dec 20th.. its rough the first few weeks.. any surgery is.. but oh the rewards that are yet to come.. I cant tell you how much better I feel.. mentally and physically.. I got the thrill of my life when I went on a flight recently..and took my extra belt.. my hubby said you dont need that..but im like yes I might.. but he was right.. I wanted to cry right there on the plane.. there was even belt left over hanging 4-6in depending the plane.. I couldnt believe it even tho i was seeing with my own eyes.. and to shop for new clothes in the department im suppose to be in? priceless.. I still have some issues with some foods that my tummy doesnt like.. but oh well..its better than being fat and over weight and being laughed at or ridiculed because you cant fit on rides at the amusement park.. I wont ever go back to the person ever again.. Im having to much fun with people calling me skinny and that im gonna blow away if I dont stop losing.. but they are making me feel good.. Im not that skinny at all.. I have 53lbs to hit my goal wt for my ht.. but its been a great experience.. Ive learned how to eat better and not eat so much..and its ok not to finish whats on the plate.. so hang in there.. great things to come.. once that wt starts falling off you will see.. just make sure you are drinking enough and get that Protein and take your vitamins... best of luck to all of you.. Im having the time of my life :)

Kidney I think was bad luck I always had problems but the spleen apparently has vessels that need to get reconnected and one couldn't so cuts blood supply to the spleen

Were you re-admitted to the hospital? Sounds like you definately need some IV hydration and antibiotics. So sorry you are going through this. I too was sleeved 5/22. I was having a lot of chest pressure the first two days when trying to swallow, was an awful feeling but luckily has improved over the last couple days. Just dealing with 'head hunger'!!

      Hi I'm Sam, currently 7 seven years out of VSG and looking into revision due to weight gain. 
      I'll be the first to say I lived life a little too hard and am looking for a second chance at a healthier life.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

        I’m 67 and will be 68 when I have my surgery at the beginning of next year.

        I’m 67 and had surgery in September.

      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?
