I put Vitamin e cream on my incisions to help lessen their appearance and help control the itching. I wouldn't do that until the steri strips come off (7-10 days) but after that it helps a ton! I'm 2 weeks post op as of yesterday. Mine are healing really nicely and with the added moisture I don't itch like crazy. Hth..

I had my surgery 8 days ago and I had a problem with itching too. I've also been really dizzy the last three days. I'm trying to get all my Protein, hydration, and rest. But I felt so great otherwise I've been really active and went back to work on Friday after surgery on Tuesday.

I went into see the doctor about the dizziness and he said it's just a result of rapid weight-loss. Which I suppose is a fair trade! He moved me up to soft solids too and I'm so excited about it!

I was sleeved Tuesday as well. I've been having more of a "head hunger" than physical hunger. sugar free Popsicles have been great, but I'm having a really hard time getting my liquids in.

I was sleeved Wednesday and had hunger pains within hours of surgery. For the first two days, it was almost constant. Even after I ate/drank, when I should have been full. So it made it hard to realize when I was actually full. But the hunger pains are lessening and now replaced by digestive pains. lol

Have found my favorite meal is a flavored Greek yogurt with a scoop of unjury, a splash of milk and an ice cube in the blender. Alternately, a vanilla greek yogurt with Unjury, a squirt of Mio and ice is good too. :)

The soreness could be bc of gas. I took gasx and omg I feel normal! I don't take the pain killers but at night, to help me sleep, but during the day I'm finding what hurts is the gas and the gasx takes care of it which is amazing! I feel normal all the way around

You aren't suppose to swallow pills. I out the soft gels in my mouth and pop them with my teeth and swallow the liquid inside bc I couldn't find the strips .

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
