I made one week......Happy 1 week surgiversary to me!



Recommended Posts

I made it through my first week. I did not experience pain from my incisions or from my new sleeve, but the AIR, GAS...whatever you may call it has been mortifying. I still have some of it left, so I walk, walk, walk, dance, move around and repeat these steps over and over again. Also, I have been having an issue with making sure I have enough fluids, I love Sonic ice so I always get a Route 44 cup and eat that during the day and sip the Water as it melts. I am determined to find what works for me and make this change.

I am two weeks out and it does get better, I still have some issues from the gas but my biggest issue is acid reflux. The first week I struggled to get enough fluids in now I am reaching the targets easily and dont have to take tiny sips any longer.
I have found the broth from chicken noodly Soup is the easiest thing to eat and tastes lovely.

I'm 4 days post op. Finding stuff to eat of drink is so much harder than I thought it would be. It takes me 90 min to sip a Protein shake! But I think I'm doing ok in general. Ready to move onto real food someday!

I'm 5 days post op and still feeling a bit sore but have cut back on pain meds so maybe I'm just noticing it more because of that. Getting in enough fluids is hard.

Have you started driving? Are you using pain meds? Do you have any weak spells? Thanks in advance! And yes, God's strength is amazing!

      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
