Hi everyone! Really just need guidance. I had my surgery on May 9th. My surgeon was awesome by the way. How long should I expect to feel this pain?

I had gastric on 4/26. After a couple of nights with pain getting out of pain the pain started easing up. 3 weeks out no pain. I started by moving from side to side in the bed end used a pillow at back for comfort. Hope you feel better.

I had surgery 4/3, and the pain was transient around my abdomen but the last of it didn't subside til about week 5. Try to take it easy & allow yourself to heal! Congrats & good luck!

DeltaD - They took you off depression meds cold turkey? That's not recommended. Mine let me stay on my depression meds, but took me off metformin and the spironolactone I was taking for PCOS. Depression meds should never be stopped cold turkey. You need to wean off those with a doctor's help. Some meds are more serious than others, and I don't know much about Effexor. You might want to call the doctor to make sure that's what he meant to do. Hope you feel better soon.

I agree with you,cold turkey seems cavalier on the Dr's part.

      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.

      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.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
