Hello everyone my revision from sleeve to RNY was April 11th. Everything went well. Pain was controlled very well. At no point was it intolerable. I came home Thursday evening. My biggest problem is gas. My stomach and back is filled with gas and nothing's moving it. I've been walking taking gas-x using heating pad. Nothing is working. Just sent my hubby to the drug store to grab mylacon drops and hope maybe that will help. Any suggestions on the gas?. Silly me put on a sports bra to go to the store to grab Protein Water and the darn sports bra ripped the glue right out of the incision between my breast. It look like it will be ok but I asked my hunny to grab some steri strips as well. I don't know what the heck I was thinking. Thought since it wasn't a wire it would be ok.

Ouch! I'm a shortie and can totally imagine how that could happen!

Did anyone else put on a ton of weight from all the Iv fluids and gas? I came on 11lbs heavier than what I weighed in the hospital the afternoon of surgery.

This totally happened to me when I had my son. I left the hospital 5lbs heavier than when I came in! Those Ivs and swelling.

I didn't check my weight for two days post op but I did pee a lot in those two days and most of it was from iv fluids. I would ask my doctor but it could just be that you've taken in more fluids than released. Hope you find relief soon!!!

I gained 10 lbs from the IV fluids. So frustrating, even though it's temporary. In fact, about five of us had our surgeries the same day in the same hospital, and we ALL gained. Our doctor said it's the nurses' fault for pumping us all full of fluid! LOL!

I was told to lay on my left side if I could and rub my tummy, kind of patting it gently too. It has helped me with getting rid of some of the gas.

so sorry to hear of your sports bra mishap. Sounds painful!! Wishing you lots of luck with recovery and gas issues.

I had surgery on April 11th and it went well but I had to stay in the hospital an extra day because of my kidneys. The combination of medications that I was on before surgery and the anesthesia that was given to me before and medications after surgery had an effect on my kidneys. Everything is well,the only issues I had have slightly now is gas pains. I found that walking helps the ease of my pain from gas. The only issue I have now is trying to get my my daily recommended water and protein intake.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.
