Hey guys I was sleeved on 4/5! I wish all of you luck on this journey! I am still dealing with nausea and vomiting. I don't want to discourage anyone but I'm feeling as if did I make the right decision? Idkk if it's just me ! But hope you guys have better luck recovering!

I had the VSG done last Wednesday on the 5th of April too!

A week out and still on a liquid diet. But I have no urge to eat lol. So it's okay. I haven't experienced any vomiting episodes and maybe had only one episode of nauseatedness. Hang in there. Stick to the book and you'll be fine!

PS just out of curiosity, did you get the VSG? If so, how much weight have you lost?

Hello everybody!!
I did it. I came out of surgery yesterday around 4pm eastern time. It's 6:03Am and I must say that the heartburn part was the worse then the pain as well made it more challenging. But if you go in it expecting it, then it won't come a surprise. I don't like when people sugar coat the recovery. Just expect the pain to be bad and hope it isn't. If I can get through it so each and every one of you can do it as well. I walked twice. I can now go to restroom alone and I'm sitting up with no issues. Just controlling my the heartburn and pain in advance is how I feel less pain. I'm praying for each and every one of you. Stay focused and don't forget your "whys" you're doing this and don't underestimate your strength.

Amanda,

The heartburn and pain were my biggest fears as well. Like I mentioned earlier, if you go in there expecting he worse pain then you've prepared yourself mentally. I mean nobody can literally say it was easy and I didn't have any pain. I mean we're all different. I had the sweetest staff. They really communicate with you if you're nice and just relay your issues clearly. Sometimes we don't understand what it is we're feeling if it's something we've never felt. Just try your best at explaining what it is you're feeling. The first day and night are the worse but the following day you feel a big difference. I still have some heartburn but they've been giving me some carafan I don't know how to spell it correctly. Well that's helped me a great deal with heartburn. My dr order a pain pump machine so control my own pain meds. Reason being is that I take chronic pain meds at home so he wanted to make sure I didn't get the minimum of pain relievers cuz it would be like I wasn't given anything for pain. Ahhhh how I love my dr. He's definitely heaven sent. Sorry for the long message.
You got this. Don't worry yourself too much just be prepared. Wishing you the best. Keep us posted. When is your surgery?

      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

      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.
