Any June/July SIPS patients?



Recommended Posts

Hang in there Stevodreo. Everyday gets a little better. I am still having issues with gas but incisions feel fine. I have no problem getting all of my Water in but the Protein is tough. They are not kidding when they say this is a full time job.

Thaky you polkat50 for your encouraging words. Its been a long 3.5 days. Getting discharged now. Still haven't had any full liquids like shakes etc but im starting when I get home later. Its ironic how my clothes that I wore to surgery don't fit anymore. I can barely close any buttons on my shirt or pants. Im still very bloated and my stomach is huge. Never been so big. Whats your Protein goal for the next week or so? My dr wants minimum 60-80 grams.

I can relate to feeling bloated. My stomach still feels huge and heavy. I would say go home and get some sleep but you are going to busy all day trying to get you Water and Protein in. My protein goal is 60-80 grams as well.

I had SIPS on 3/25 in North Carolina. These doctors do NOT use a drain tube! They stitch and glue you up completely and I've not heard of any issues. I healed up nicely. I can't imagine coming home with the drain tube, as it must a nuisance.

Sorry it's been a while since I've checked in on the forum. It looks like everyone is doing well. I'm almost 3.5 post op now and feeling fantastic! For those of you that are freshly post op or getting ready for your procedure, the most important thing to remember is you do improve everyday, trust me! I have absolutely no regrets and wish I had done this several years earlier.

I did not have a drain either but I know of others who have. It would have been a hassle. Thanks for Facebook support group.

Same here. No port. Just glue. So happy about that

      I baked a gross of (144) chocolate chip cookies for the coffee break (fika) at work. The cool part was that I managed to not eat a single one of them. Not only that but I finished with my baking by 11pm and got up at 5am for my doggie walk before work. This time it was MUCH easier to skip the cookies since I was thinking about dumping in the back of my mind. That and the damn gremlins (oops I mean  grehlins) are on vacation at the moment.

      Currently waiting on a surgery date. Hope to hear soon. I have been fighting for the sleeve surgery for 10 years. I am so ready!
