How many incisions?



Recommended Posts

Finally got my band to sleeve revision done. It was yesterday. First 3 hours was bad. Incision pain, general nausea, gas pains. After that I could walk and the pain subsided. Although nauseous, I tolerated Water well, and I never slimed (like I did with my lap band) and haven't thrown up yet. The first two walks, I got dizzy. That went away today. My surgery was done at 7 am, and I was released the same day at 4 pm. I was first in.

I'm not hungry at all. Today, on my 2nd day I was able finished 32 oz with 1 scoop Bariclear, going to make a new one to try to get 64 oz but don't think I'll be able to get that down by the end of the day.

So I see I have 7 incisions. I had like 4 for my lapband. How many did they put in you? Thanks!

I had eight, but was told 7 is typica. They realized one of the incisions was too far out from where they had to reach, so they didn't really use it, but had to cut another one closer in.

I had 4 ... 3 for instruments and 1 in my belly button where they removed the stomach. No pain on the incision sites at all.

Thank you That's what I thought too... And what I had experienced for my lap band. I thought perhaps it's cause its a revision they needed three more incisions.

I had 4. The first 3 are from instruments and the larger one is on the left side of abdomen. I also had a JP drain.

Note to self: I don't have to take this day all at once but rather one step, one breath and one moment at a time. I am only one person.

I had a robotic procedure. 4 punctures for instruments and one incision for removal of the stomach. At 3 weeks post-op all of my o.o sites are healed.

I have 6 and one hurts like crazy. It's only my second day after surgery so I'm hoping the pain starts to chill out.

Today was my 3rd day and I had one that hurt so bad too. I believe the nurse told me it was the site they pulled the large stomach through and put a mesh there. Feel better soon. Day 3 feels almost normal to me. Day 1 was not so good, neither was day 2.

I had a band to sleeve revision and I have 5 incisions. I am two weeks post op and one is still pretty sore. Doc says its normal because that was the deepest incision he had to make.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
