I was sleeved about 130 in the afternoon and I got out of surgery about 3 p.m. I was out of it for that first night I did come around about 600 and I did not have any severe pain or even any gas pain I was doing a little bit of burpIng. I did throw up about 10 p. M. And it was a bloody Bile type of throw up. My doctor was called and said it was fine, just oozing from the surgery. It didn't happen again. I was able to do my swallow test the next morning and that went well. I got out of the hospital about 4 p.m. On the second day. I am able to drink Protein Drinks as well as the required Water. My doctor required me to drink 90 to 100 grams of Protein a day but the liquid was included in my liquid total.

How many days since your surgery? Are you up and around? Did they make you get up and walk every two hours? Mine says I will have to do that.

I had my surgery on 7 October 2014 so tomorrow will be exactly one week post op.they did make me get up a couple of times the first night and a couple of times the second day to walk around but to be honest I was up every hour going to the bathroom anyway.I did do 30 minutes of walking each day since then and I'm thinking I may actually go into work tomorrow I was off today because of the holiday. My original plan was to go back to work next Monday but I'm feeling so good that I may go in in the morning.

So I'm a HUGE fan of Tervis cups !! So here's a pic ...

The large size is my normal pre op Tervis Size. The medium I got for my post op op Water. And my little itty bitty tervis cup for my liquid foods for the next three weeks. So cute !!

Oh, and please don't hate the Cowboys fan. It's just football.. and I was a fan since I was 5 ;)

HUGS everyone

Tervis Cups

With the first couple days did you have sensation of choking at all with the Water?

Tomorrow is our day October 14th sleevers. How is everyone feeling? Excited, scared, a little of both? Any advice from those post op? Any last minute preps going on? Can't wait to start this journey. Praying we all have no complications and a quick recovery.

Continuing to pray for everyone! There are several for tomorrow...stay positive! Get up and walk as soon as you can but do not get down on yourself if you can't do it quickly! Different ages and bodies! Remember....we've all got this!
