Sleeved on July 22. Came home on Wednesday. Really no pain. Some occasional gas discomfort but nothing bad. I was getting all my Protein in yesterday. Still trying to get all my liquid in though. Working on it every minute. A little emotional today. All of a sudden weeping over I don't know what. Not much of a crier, so not liking this at all. My poor hubby keeps asking what he can do. Does the emotional stuff go away soon?

I was very emotional days three and four too. Come to find out I was having a reaction to the codeine my Dr sent me home with.

I am definitely feeling extremely emotional as well. I get very upset & cranky with everyone. It started yesterday whicch marked my one week since my surgery. I thought maybe I was going crazy :( it was my daughters 18th birthday & everyone went out to eat & I just felt so left out all because I had the surgery does not mean that I dont exist any more :( I could have went & took my protien shake with me but noone bothered to even ask. I think that is what hurt the most. :'(

Im 5 days out too & I haven't had any pain either and I am also very emotional today. Just want to sleep all day. I'm not taking in much at all though. I feel like I'm going to make myself sick if I don't start getting in my nutrition. Also, I want to shave my legs and pick up on stuff. I think that is why I'm so emotional. Also I have NOT had a bowel movement yet!?!

Congrats to all of us July Sleevers. I was sleeved on Tuesday, July 23rd. The surgery took 3 and half hours due to blood vessels being wrapped in the spleen. All went well though. I am having some pain, but nothing I cannot deal with. The biggest issue is trying to get comfy. My awesome hubby took me to Wal-Mart today so I could get out of the house and it did wonders for me. I am trying to get in my liquids and Proteins but it isn't as easy as I thought it would be. I will keep everyone posted here. I know how much it helps me to ready everyone's posts. Lets keep thinking positive and looking at the goal. Have a great day.

Is any of my fellow July sleevers having the same problem I am. I have been at the same weight for 3 days. I try to remember to have all 5 meals and I do exercise at least 3-4 days a week.

Yes and no even gained five pounds. I wasn't getting in enough calories. I have lost everyday since I upped my calories. However, the everyday loss will stop after a while. So, I suggest we not weigh ourselves everyday but once a week.... Just a thought... ????

Yea I stopped weighing myself everyday because of it. Thanks for the tip, I think cause I have been home for 3 weeks, all I do is sleep or walk so nor when I go back to work I will be awake and will have to eat.

I was sleeved on 7/11 and since the 5th day post-op I havent had a problem getting my shakes down. Also, just started yesterday on my soft/pureed foods and seem to be able to eat more than I thought. I made eggs last night and ate about 1/2 cup. Today I had cottage cheese and was almost able to finish one of those small single servings. I don't get sick, I just feel full and stop. I am worried that it's too much???? I thought it would be harder than this. Should I be concerned???

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes

      I'm a finisher of a half marathon! Completed yesterday on a beautiful day to run. My hips and Knee are pretty angry with me today, but we finished at 2:19. Not bad for my first half. I was able to run with my wife, so that made it much nicer and easier to get through
