Steph! I was the day after. That would make sense why we don't really remember lol. We were both out of it. Yeah I was always hot, now the house was 75 and I had long pants, fuzzy feet and a light jacket on. Crazy !!! They used glue on me. They knew not to use latex because I'm allergic to that. Maybe something is in the glue. I"ll check out.

And VSG? I think that's who asked about the cpap. I never used one. Sorry :(

I used the cpap and it was fine. They had it in my room and I just put it on when I went to sleep. Same as at home.

I can't find the post but what is going on with glued incisions? Mine were glued....

I read that sometimes the blood thinning injections, when given in the abdomen, can cause bruising.

@@Vsglady I did use my cpap. The First night maybe four hours & second three. I've only had it two week so I'm still not used to it. They switched me to oxygen which was much easier to sleep with.

Yeah - I have a heck of a bruise from one of my Lovenox injections but not from the others. They told me if I rubbed it it was going to bruise. (Although I don't remember rubbing it....)

Hi everyone,

My first post op appointment is today, even though I had my surgery on Tuesday my surgeon meets with patients on Mondays and preform surgeries on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (he's very busy).

I weighted myself yesterday and was down 5 so far????.

I needed something savory yesterday and I had a few spoons of butternut squash Soup and it tasted like fall. It was what I needed.????

Have any of you tried unjury Protein powder? If so what flavor?

My incisions are itchy too. ????My surgeon use some kind of tape that will fall off on its own but the belly button incision is bothering me because my stomach folds over a tad in that area and creates moisture ????so I'll get him to take a look today. I currently have a cotton ball there hoping that helps eliminate some moisture.

I lost only 5 lbs my first week too. Hoped for more but it is what it is. My 2 week post op is tomorrow.

I like the vanilla and strawberry Unjury. The strawberry is very sweet so I add a few ounces of Water.< /p>

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
