Surgery was rough. I felt awful afterwards. But the next day I felt better, and now I am home on Wednesday after surgery Monday morning. Every hour it gets better, but yeah...the first 24 hours were hell ; /

First 48 hours seemed like hell. Couldn't get comfy to sleep very well etc. Should be discharged this morning after the barium swallow.

Agreed. First twenty four were very rough. Just got home. Feeling pretty good. Just tired. Drinking some tea and trying to stay hydrated. Tomorrow will be a better day.

I was sleeved March 10th. Two questions:

If I drink ice Water I get a pain in my stomach. But if I drink normal temp not so bad.

And how long does gas pain last. I was fine last week now last couple days shoulder hurts.

Good luck to everyone!

My shoulder hurt too a few days later. Trapped gas I guess.

Had my sleeve yesterday and still in the hospital because I haven't voided. Take note, drink plenty of Water the day before surgery or you be sitting here like me. I'm feeling so much better and totally ready to go. Now, if could just pee!

Sleeved Monday. No trouble peeing but haven't pooped! How long before the first poop on the liquid diet? Should I be worried about

constipation at this point??

I went on day 4 but it was just a tiny bit. I had been taking Miralax daily since before surgery and started again the day after I got home from hospital. Added Smooth Move tea and took a dose of Milk of Mag and went a ton on post op day 5. Felt much better. Milk of Mag is pretty potent. Taste nasty though.

CrazeyJaney - since we are same day sleevers I have a few questions.

Are you getting any gurgling noises / feelings that continue on for a few min at a time? What is that????

Yes. Gurgles all the time but mostly with liquids. Are you onto puréed yet? I tried refried Beans tonight and felt bad. Mixed unflavored Protein Powder in sugar free Jello - lemon flavor from a box - it was actually good. I'm so tired of liquids. Can't wait to chew!!! Argh!!!!!!

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

      Looking for new sleeve buddies! I’m 1.5 weeks post op and things seem to be getting a little difficult! I actually WANT food again eghh! Honestly, I feel like you don’t truly understand this process unless you go through it! Don’t be shy, say hello and let’s support each other during this journey 🙂

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
