I had RNY done by Laura July on April 4th. She is absolutely amazing and went above and beyond for me. Good luck with your surgery! You'll be in great hands.




How are you feeling now and how was your pain level.

I'm feeling fantastic! The first couple days my body was really achy (my neck, back & legs) and my stomach hurt a little bit. By day 4 post op I was out shopping and doing yard work. I only had to take my pain meds 4 times at half the dose prescribed. And now (12 days post op) I feel like a million bucks!

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
