I had my surgery yesterday. All went well. It only took about an hour, which surprised me. I spent the night in ICU and I'm now finally in my own room. Already drinking Water and did my first leak test. The pain isn't horrible so far. I hope all the other 8/29 sleeves are doing well too.

Surgery 8/28 was a success! Came home last night and I still have quite a bit of gas still but I'm doing fine! Doctor said it was ok to take Gas X so I'm hoping that it will help get rid of the rest of the gas along with my walking.

Glad to hear you're doing well. It's normal not to have a BM for the first week' date=' apparently, prob bc we have nearly nothing going through. Make sure you're walking enough, the cramps might be some residual gas. Congrats on being sleeved![/quote']

Thanks! This morning the milk of magnesia kicked in full force! Lol. I've been walking plenty but the scale isn't really moving much :(.

Hey sleeve sis! Glad you're doing ok! I too have not been hungry at all which I'm grateful for. My gas pains are pretty much gone. My abdominal wall on the left side (where they pulled my old stomach out of) is really sore. I actually wish I wasn't having BM's. I've had the runs since Wednesday. :( Its not the most comfortable thing because wiping is quite difficult because I'm so sore. Sorry for the TMI. Good luck! I can't wait to feel normal too!

Glad you're doing well! I'm still having a lot of gas pain but I finally had a bowel movement and I totally understand how hard it is to wipe! I have to stand up and do it. My really sore incision is on the right side. I can't wait to see how I feel 1 week post op!

You look great! Rest yourself now. Welcome to the other side :)

I was sleeved Weds 8/28 morning was supposed to have gone home Friday but my white count was up! Dr said it always goes up with surgery but 2 days after it should have gone down and mine actually went up....so make sure you use your incentive spirometer and open your lungs back up! She told me she didn't care if it hurt I HAD to do it or I WILL end up with pneumonia...I puffed on that thing like a mad woman yesterday!! ????
