What’s Your Worst Post-Op Memory (or Fear)?



Recommended Posts

That it "won't work"

I have learned a lot of self control but I still see dumping as motivation to make better choices.

I'm worried they will cut my stomach too big and I'll still be able to eat a lot.

I've heard people saying that they felt like "they never even had wls".

I just don't want to be one of those people. I want to be successful.

Oh and stalling. I know I shouldn't be scared of the three week stall because I know it will come but I still worry about it.

@@Elode where do you get the tea? constipation is almost all the time for me.

I buy mine at Kroger. It's in the health food section. I've also seen it at Vitamin Shoppe. I believe she said she found it at Walmart.< /div>
I live in Arizona and saw it at Frys tonight

I did wake up once during surgery. it isn't at all pleasant to say the least and I still haave nightmares of the expierence. that said I now let the anthesialogist know that I did wake up and they make sure I stay asleep. so have the talk with your doctor and the anthesialogist and waking up during the procedure won't be a problem. I promise.

I am so worried that I will wake up during the procedure. recently had a colonoscopy- I asked them I will be put out right? they were snappy saying YEs!! we have to get you situated first..lay onyour side etc..well they started and nothing I didnt feel any of the meds..the anesthesiologist nurse kept pushing the meds (verced?) bad spelling.. into my iv. and nothing.nothing.I screamed and cried. they cut out a polyp and took tissue samples..I felt it all. some people think I am crazy but I felt it. it hurt so bad. I have a history of colon cancer and had a big tumor in my rectum that has staples in.. so already issues down there. after it was over ( I never was out at all) the nurse came in and said she gave me 700 units of verced and they usually only give 500 units. and that should have knocked me out. well it didnt (dont you have an alternative pain management plan in place??) then the doctor who kept telling me to be quiet came in and said you dont do well with Verced..umm ya think?? and she told me next time I have a procedure to ask for fentenal? she said just ask for the drugs that killed michael jackson?? umm wow I have to associate me having a procedure with dying?? when I got off the gurny/bed there was blood all over the sheet. needless to say I will now be making sure before I go in to get a guarantee I wont wake up. that was a nightmare. so I guess I am worried I will wake up ..or nothave pain meds that I need. Just gotta have faith.l have had lots of good experiences.this happened a month ago..so it is still fresh.. ughh

thanks

My worst fear is severe hypoglycemia. I'm not diabetic but I've gotten Migraines from low blood sugar that have laid me up for days.

They gave me a codeine by mouth in the hospital upon returning from the recovery room. I was wearing an allergy Bracelet to prevent it. Stuff won't kill me but makes me nauseous on a good day and the day you have 90% of your stomach removed is NOT a good day! So I puked immediately which sucks particularly bad and is very scary RIGHT after surgery. That was the last narcotic pain med I took, (or needed).

That moment when you think your son is clapping for you, but you realize it is just the loose skin on your thighs...nightmare comes true.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.
