Is there anyone near Cumming Georgia? I have my sleeve tomorrow and looking for buddies nearby.

Hi Lici!

I'm in Alpharetta and just had my sleeve done by Dr Hart about 9 days before you! So, I won't have a lot of long-term advice, but I am writing because you are on day 4 right now.

Days 2-6 were THE ABSOLUTE WORST for me. I was in so much gas pain, and I was hungry, couldn't eat or drink much, felt like crap and was just completely miserable. I was full of regret, and wanted to cry all the time. I was NOT prepared to feel like that! I had no idea I was going to be so unhappy. It scared me!

I am telling you this just in case you also feel bad today. I needed to know I wasn't alone, and that these feelings are all very common. They are! Dr Hart told me that lots of people feel depressed or angry (Hangry, I think) and in a few more weeks I'll feel way better.

So, just in case you're feeling bad or lonely, or sad, please know that in just a few days to a week or so, it'll be tons better. I'm still struggling with the lifestyle change, but at least I'm not in any pain or discomfort any more. And I'm less than 2 weeks post-op!

I hope things are going great for you! But if not, please know it will get better. That's what everyone keeps telling me, and I believe them!

Good luck!
Erin

So far I haven't felt depressed or angry about the surgery. I have felt a little weak and sleepy though. And I am constantly thinking about food. I get soft foods Saturday and I have made so many plans. Thank you for your words of encouragement

Not too bad. I stalled a little from my period but seem to be back to losing. Incisions are tender and super itchy. Most soft food agrees with me but chicken is no bueno. Unless I completely douse it in mayo and ricotta it feels like sandpaper going down. I made a poor decision and had a grilled wrap last night in ravenous hunger. Ate too much and too fast. That was the most painful hour. O_O.
