Any January Surgery Bandsters?



Recommended Posts

Everyone is different. I found day 2-3 to be the worst as far as incisions/moving around, after the hospital meds wore off, but I know some people have very little pain.

I hope I don't have too much pain. I am having knee and lower back pain now due to the weather.

I didnt have too much pain, it was just uncomfortable at the incision points during the hospital stay. Once i was home, after being in overnight, i was fine. Managed on one pain killer a day and hot Water bottles. I think everyone is different

That is true I am trying to get an idea of what to expect.

I am home now from surgery today. My stomach feels bloated and there is slight pain on the biggest incision which is, I guess the port. They glued the incision no stitches. I don't feel gas pains yet. I am really tired slept all day. Doesn't hurt to walk, but it is slow. I am sipping Water when I am awake. It is like you instinctively know not to guzzle. I did have Jello maybe three bites. No Protein today.

Successful surgery on Wednesday the 15th! Surgery is a piece of cake!! Honestly, couldn't have gone any better. I work from home, so I have been working since I walked back in the door from surgery :) Yesterday, I took it easy (although, I did walk 1 mile) and today I took a shower and took off the bandages! So far so good. My biggest issue is how I am going to get all my pills down. I'm tackling them one at a time. I haven't weighed yet, but probably will tomorrow.

I'm on my journey, and I will be keeping up with all of you, too!

I am officially one of banders, with my Surgery on Wednesday the 15th,. I am sore and swollen still but feel better today. Gas pain is the worst-it comes and goes. I just keep moving and sipping away in hopes that each day gets better.

I feel you! The first week on clear liuids was surprisingly easy for me as far as hunger. Once i hit day 9 or 10... I started getting a little famished. Dr said i wont feel much restriction yet either cuz i havent had a fill yet. I think im mostly filling up on all these liquids we r supposed to sip all day
