I only stayed one night. Because they wanted to make sure my pain was controlled. Everything. Went great! Now I'm home, how to get comfortable!?!?!

Congratulations on your surgery. ;-):rolleyes:B):lol:B):P:)

After surgery it is hard to get comfortable, at least for awhile. This is especially true at bedtime. Some people resort to sleeping on recliners. But don't do what I did. I slept on my waterbed. It was so painful getting out of a waterbed after surgery.

I found that putting a pillow between my legs helped when I went to bed.

Try not to sit in soft recliners, as it will be a pain to stand up. I had mine on June 21st and I didn't sleep at all on my hospital stay night, so I am catching up on some sleep now. Congratulations!;)

Agree 100% with @James Marusek, it is dam near impossible to sleep comfortably for the first few days. Luckily it gets better quick. Best of luck with everything and congrats on the surgery!!

I am doing better, definitely. Hurts when I cough or laugh or when I am standing up from my couch. Tomorrow is day 6 for me, and I am able to sip more liquids than when I had just come home. I cannot wait to be able to eat at least some tuna or ground beef lol! Glad that you are regaining your strength.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
