Don't over do it! Rest when you need to,drink that ounce of Fluid every ten minute for ten hours of the day to get your 60 oz in ,drink your Protein and have lots of Popsicles and broth for variety! My doc routinely prescribes a small rx of Ativan for anxiety and pain management. I found taking one when I felt stressed helped my pain management better than an actual pain rx. You'll do great!

Gurgles and gas! If it hasn't happened yet, you might get some pretty bad gas pain. I was fine the day after surgery until about 4:30pm when I felt absolutely terrible because of the gas trying to find an escape route! The good thing is that it only lasted for a few hours and that was it for me.

You will be tired, and that is totally normal. In addition to the liquids, just try to get up and walk a little every hour or so. It will help the gas move along.

Good luck!

Take some of your pain medicine in your iv before they release you. Take a pillow to hold you stomach in place for the drive home. Buy some gas x strips, those will help a lot.

I had my sleeve done yesterday as well. I was told that I can have Popsicles, Jello and broth in addition to my normal liquids. My pain levels are subsiding but the gas pain is awful!

      Psyllium husk is the sh*t! No really, it's my new go to for fiber in order to get regular. The nice thing is that it doesnt taste and is low in calories, so it's great for my shakes. It isn't expensive either and available in most grocery stores. Looking back on the forums, it seems to be FluffyChix favorite as well.

      I had gastric sleeve surgery 5 years ago. My gastric reflux has recently got so bad that's the acid burns into my ears. I was given a lidocaine solution that would help with the burning pain in my throat. I spoke to my gastroenterologist about a procedure I saw online for the reflux.  She said I didn't qualify so I went to see the doctor that did this procedure who happens to be a bariatric doctor. He explained why I was not good for the procedure because I had a stricture in the esophagus a hiatal hernia. Due to the gastric sleeve the acid is being forced up into my throat. The doctor wants to do a bypass which should relieve that pressure. I am going for an upper GI tomorrow.  I was wondering if anyone else as experienced this. I am new here I do not go on social media so I don't know my way around I will try to find my way back here.

        I was revised from a sleeve to a bypass 10 months out from my sleeve. I was waking up with acid in my mouth and burning the back of my nose. The bypass worked beautifully in eliminating the reflux. Oh, and to get back here, just google bariatricpal forums!

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com
