Feeling awful! Still in hospital for at leased another day. Apparently he had to hand sew a part cuz the stapler was misfiring and that section is very narrow. Been regurgitating spit balls the whole night. I just want to be back home.. Regretting this so badly, I miss my kids like crazy.

Hang in there sweetie - I vomited for 2 days and was wishing I had tried the old fashioned way one more time, but on day 4 post-op - I feeling human again. Drinking Crystal Light Margarita flavor - it's great. You are going to be o.k. soon.

OMG - The barium swallow was horrific! It made me nauseated almost immediately and I was nauseous for a whole day! But' date=' on the bright side, I know that my new tummy has no leaks and I am really happy about that![/quote']

Luckily I didn't have to deal with that. My surgeon basically does a pressure test during the surgery so that worst case scenario he could fix it before closing me back up.

Wow, you're really lucky. The barium swallow test is just nasty. Thank goodness it was just a few sips.

I'm tolerating liquids, getting my Protein and walking but the problem I'm having is I have an itchy rash all over my body and its driving me crazy! I've scratched so much I drew blood. The dr. Said he didn't want to give me any medicine since I need to focus on my recovery and didn't want any medicines that may cause side effects. He said to wait it out and apply anti itch lotion its nothing to worry about.. This is by far the worst feeling I've had.

I had surgery July 2nd and am going back to wrk July 16th, exactly 2 weeks. Still going to be careful lifting, etc.. for a few weeks. Pretty much like you, I stayed home, made a few trips to Walmart, just to get out of house. I did walk a lot in the house and outside when it wasn't raining. I write down all my liquid, Protein, carb intake just to make sure... I'm doing great but TIRED of drinking... Looking forward to purée and soft stage. Weighed this am.... 15 lbs since surgery morning!! So excited! Good luck and Congrats to you!

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
