Hey there I have something similar. More like a muscle spasm under my left breast. It is th only swollen spot left , kinda does look like an air bubble. For me I think it is where the stomach was taken out of so it's more sensitive!

I was sleeved on 7/10 and am on soft foods now. The hardest part for me is to take small bites and go slowly. I'm still working on not drinking when I eat. I sometimes sneak in a sip. :-)

My main concern has been going to the bathroom. Thank goodness for milk of magnesia! I also don't have much urge to urinate which seems weird because I'm drinking constantly. I don't know if the constipation is causing Water retention..?

I didn't have much pain after the surgery - maybe a 2 or 3. Most of my pain was in moving from standing to sitting/laying down or getting into or out of bed. I swear I thought my stitches on the left side were going to burst open. I'm trying to keep everything looking easy because I really want my hubby to be sleeved and he is watching my experience before he decides.

Nikki B - just keep doing what we're supposed to do. I actually gained from pre-surgery thru liquids - was retaining Fluid. Once started on pureed, I dropped 10 lbs in 6 days. Don't be discouraged. Just keep getting your Protein & fluids. Losses will follow.

Got sleeved on the 24th and other than minor gas pain, all things are going along well. I weighed myself today 3 days post op and I have lost five pounds already. I am so glad I did this. I know this is the best decision for me and I wish all of you sleevers the same, I will keep you all posted. Thanks for all your help.

So day 5 now, drinking is easier. Ate farina, cream of chicken Soup and 3/4 of a 14 oz Protein drink and 2 sugar free ice pops yesterday Still can only get one dose of Actigall in, supposed to have 2...so full and bloated all day and I need to mix it in applesauce or pudding. Soreness at largest incision definitely improved, hurts less getting up and sitting down and I was able to sleep in my bed and not in the recliner chair. Feel like maybe hit by just a car today and not a Mack truck.

I am on day three of post op. I find it easier to get down warm broth than I do to get down ice Water. I had 4 oz of broth and 2oz of water for Breakfast and I am stuffed. Gl everyone!

      I broke 150 lbs today!!!!
      150 lbs has been my wall for the past 15 years.  I've dieted down to the low 150s 3 times only to regain what I lost and more. 
      I am now officially 149.7 lbs as of this morning.  Yay me!

      Tomorrow is surgery day...  I'm not sure if I'm nervous, anxious, excited or a little bit of all three.  I honestly thought I would be freaking out at this point, but I'm much calmer than that.  I suppose the last 7 months of preparation both physically and mentally has brought me some peace.  I say this now, but when I try to sleep tonight, that may be a different story.  
      I appreciate everything I've read on this forum that has helped me to prepare as much as possible.  I know this part of my journey may not be the same as someone else's, but having a good frame of reference helps a ton. 
      The most exciting and most difficult part of the journey begins tomorrow...

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.
