Post Op 5 days & hurting & worried. Please Help!

Recommended Posts

I had single incision done on Aug 6th. I was instructed to be on a clear liquid diet for 7 days, I was doing fine til yesterday which was a loooong day of traveling home. I 1st felt a little lite headed. It felt as though I haven't eaten enough to sustain me. I'm afraid to eat or drink anything unless it's clear. More so because of harm I maybe doing to my new stomach. Single incision is done through the belly button and I'm verrrry sore today but it maybe due to tightening my stomach muscles for 3 hrs during flight as I was freezing my incision area is sore which is probably normal. Today I feel like my stomach is in knotts and cramps when drinking & stomach is the most sore it has been so far I feel weak and would like to drink Protein Shakes I had pre op. Please give me your feed back on your experience.

cramps when drinking :angry:


sorry you are having problems/weak et al :(

many people find it more "comfortable"/easier to drink liquids at room temperature this early in the game

easier on tummy

thats the extent of my words of wisdom for now :wacko:

good luck

feel better

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
