Good morning May sleevers! I had my surgery on Wednesday the 24th and now am home resting. It's a struggle to get in the 60 oz of clear liquids but I'm trying. I have had very little pain from the incisions. Have had a few doses of liquid loratab just to knock off the achiness. Doing lots of naps, walking and following Dr. orders. Can't wait to watch the weight start coming off.

I had mine on the 24th as well

I had my surgery Tuesday morning (May 30) and everything went great. The surgeon found a hiatal hernia and fixed that while he was in the neighborhood. The day of surgery was painful -- I hurt like a somab*tch from my chin to my hips, and it took three full days for the gas pain to dissipate. I came home yesterday morning, on Day 3 of post-op. Today is Day 4 post-op and most of the pain and swelling is gone. I'm trying to get in my walking and allow myself all the naps I want. I haven't experienced nausea at this point -- thank goodness -- and have managed to keep Protein Shakes and fluids down. It takes me about two hours to drink an 11-oz Premier shake.

I'm just so relieved and happy that the procedure iitself is behind me.

Best wishes to everyone who is just home from the hospital.

You'll feel better each day. I can get all my shakes and Water in. I can go from sitting to standing without using my arms to lift me. Impossible the first few days. I'm only 11 days out and besides fatigue I'm amazed at how fast I felt better. You're on your way and should be through the worst.

      I joined BariatricPal in 2008 & I FINALLY made the descision to have WLS!! I'm so excited & not sure what I need to do to get the ball rolling, but I made an appointment with my PCP for 7/19. It's a start I guess.

        I've been dreaming about it for 30 years or so. It's time to make it happen!

      I joined yesterday when I was struggling with this preop diet... 
      It typically comes and goes, the hard times and easier times. I'm on day 6 of 14  shakes, water, sf Popsicles and jello. And I might actually be losing my mind. But, oh dear lord has the fear set in. Not about the surgery itself, but life afterwards. If I feel this crappy on the preop diet, am I going to feel like this forever after? 
      I know most of the answers are no, not forever. It might be worse after for a while, then get better. I know it's a more of a mental challenge than physical after the first couple weeks of healing. I get all of that. But I'm starting to feel scared about losing myself afterwards. 
      It might be my hormones or desire to chew something salty talking.. It may go away soon or tomorrow.. I can hope, anyway. But right now.. The fear is real. 
       
      And this liquid diet can bite me.

        Fear is normal, but if it makes you feel any better, I'm 4.5 months post-op and the pre-op diet was by far the hardest part of the whole process. There will be challenges and a lot of new things to learn, but I can honestly say at this point I feel so much more "back to normal" and was even able to go on a week-long vacation with my kids without stressing over it. It's so worthwhile.

        @NickelChip This actually does make me feel better! Thank you so much! After the onslaught of Covid, we've all had to deal with a "new normal", so I know it's possible. It's just the fear and frustration in this moment that makes me question if I can find another "new normal" afterwards. The thought of just a few more months seems daunting some times, but I really do appreciate input and real experience. I'll use that to get me through for a few more hours! LOL. Thank you so much! And I'm glad everything is going so well for you! ❤️
