Recommended Posts

Hi all i' date=' m having my sleeve op on Monday 19th aug too, really scared but excited too, I have been on a 10 day milk and yoghurt pre op diet, its tough but only 2 days left and i, ve lost 10 lb in 8 days!! I will never eat jelly/ Jello again lol, I was advised by my cousin who had the sleeve 2 yrs ago to take windeze tablets to take after the op and to walk as this will ease it. She has lost 9 stone in 2 yrs I have 8 stone to lose after this pre op diet, want to wish everyone having it the same day goodluck from here in the uk :-D[/quote']

I'm having my surgery on the 19th also. Blessings!

Almost a week out from surgery and I'm feeling like a human again. I spent one night in the hospital but I could have stayed 2. Wednesday I was overing doing it, cooking dinner, giving my kids baths, folding laundry thinking Im sitting while doing most thing so its ok. Thursday was the same. Friday I woke up having the worst pain and thought my incisions ripped open. I actually went to the ER. Nothing was wrong but I was told to take my pain meds and take it easy. I'm really following those orders now and feel incredibly better. Drinking Water and getting in my Protein are the only things I'm worrying about. I'm down 17lbs and feeling so blessed.

You look really bruised...

Are they warm to the touch or oozing? My surgeon told me if they are warm to the touch and oozing to call right away.. I don't have staples tho mine are different.

I am one week out tomorrow and I feel so good. I have lost 16lbs since last Monday evening. I don't take my pain meds anymore as of Thursday. I also feel the itchy starting on my incisions but I've heard it's a normal sign of healing. I can't wait till I can start introducing new foods because I get bored easily. Any stage 1 liquid diet ideas?

Hi Rob, I'm 8 days out today and have lost 14lbs. Strangely I have felt no itching but I have district nurses coming out to change my dressing and they say its healing well. I had the single incision and have what looks like a frowning navel now. Lol! I have been having problems keeping my complan shakes down so contacted my surgeon's senior nurse practitioner who said as long as it can be sucked up through a straw I can have it. ( not allowed to actually use a straw though). So, today my mum kindly made me chicken and vegetable Soup which we blended to within an inch of its life, added Water to thin the mixture out and hey presto, a gorgeous Protein enriched soup. She also said if you add a scoop of milk powder to whatever you're having it will give you the protein you need! Gonna have beef n vegetable soup tomorrow!

      Well, tomorrow I go in for an impromptu hiatal hernia repair after ending up in the ER over the weekend because I couldn't get food down and water was moving at a trickle... I've been having these symptoms on and off for a few weeks but Sunday was the worst by far and came with chest pain and trouble breathing. The ER PA thinks it is just esophagitis and that the surgeon and radiologist are wrong. But the bariatric surgeon swears it is a hernia, possibly a sliding one based on my symptoms. So he fit me into his schedule this week to repair it! I hope he's right and this sorts it out. He's going to do a scope afterwards to be sure there is nothing wrong with the esophagus. Here's hoping it all goes well!!

      Having gall bladder surgery in a few days and I so hope the recovery is easier than the one from the modified DS! I could use a bit of luck/pep talk for a change. I'm starting to be able to walk around without experiencing dizziness, but it would be great if the random pain in my chest and abdomen would go away!!
