Hi January Sleevers! Got my GSL on Thursday Jan 8th, came home on Friday Jan 9th. Did really well post-op at surgery center but have struggled with pain since I got home. I realize the gas situation takes time but can't seem to get comfortable to sleep where when I get up I'm not straining my stomach muscles. Tried my bed and my LazyBoy loveseat recliner + finally decided on loveseat. I know I just need to be patient + it will get better each day, but ugh. Hope everyone else is doing well!

I had my lap band removed and VSG done on Monday, January 8th, and went home on Wednesday, January 10th. Everything went well, the gas pain was bad at first, but I had pretty much walked it all out before leaving the hospital. I can't sleep in my bed yet, but my recliner is working out great. Having some pain, not really from the incisions, but from the muscle layer below (lots of pulling and burning when I am standing and walking).

I am on the full liquid diet and the last two days I have been able to hit my Protein and Fluid goals. Been feeling sluggish since surgery, but finally had a BM today, so hopefully that will help me get back to feeling more like normal. Trying not to take the narcotic pain meds today and just sticking with liquid Tylenol.

Good luck to everyone out there!

I'm one day post-op and feeling pretty well overall, just a little woozy. Today I've had two episodes of feeling hot, sweaty, and nauseous with dry heaves. I'm drinking small sips slowly and feel the gas bubbles come up as if I took in a bunch of air. I think the woozy feeling will wear off once the IV pain meds from this morning are metabolized. I'm just trying to rest today and hoping the nausea will stay away.

Had my sleeve 1/5/15.

For the gas bubbles. I walked and walked. I am sure you heard the walking speech. But it is the answer to letting go of those bubbles.

Yesterday was a yucky day for me. Protein shake I tried didn't set well. Today is a much better day.

Still feel lonely. Can't really vent to much at home. Hubby thinks you made your bed now....

But thank goodness I found this app. :)

I'm brand new to this website, it's my first post!! I'm trying to learn to navigate around so please be patient with me. I'm post op only 12 days of the sleeve (Dec 29, 2014). Still having some pain at one incision site. My surgery was laparoscopic. I have very little energy and am emotional. I'm hoping this is 'normal'. I'm a single parent to a 10 yr. old and a 13 yr. old. My mom was here the first 8 post op days and made a world of difference. I'm feeling alone, emotional, and overwhelmed with the new tasks of getting all my Protein liquid in, Vitamins, supplements etc. It's a full time job and requires too much energy right now.

Thoughts and tips would be great, thank you. I'm so glad I found you!!

Hopefully you will be feeling better very quickly. My 1st day post-op was not great. I got the dry heaves more than once and nausea was pretty much constant even with the meds. Keep us posted on how you are doing.

Congrats to all of you. I to am going through the a lone phase. (I hope phase) I felt pretty good the first few days. Did a lot of walking to get rid of the gas. Now I am week and emotional.

Ohhhh I have an odd thing going on. My arms. More the left then right. But from my wrist up...to my elbow. Have been sore like crazy. I get a little relief if I keep them warm.

I am I the only one?

Cyr, you might try sugar free popsicles if you're thirsty but Water sounds disgusting. My surgery was also Thursday 1/8 and SF popsicles are really what got me thru my first 2 post-op clear liquid only days. Hope you get feeling better soon!

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.
