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

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it

      Good Morning! Today is the first day of my liver shrinking diet!  It is hard being in the office and in my classes thinking about my old habits. But surgery is so close so can't complain too much! !10 days away!! Here we go.

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
