I am 9 days post is starting yesterday I broke out in a rash covering my entire mid section. Little red itchy raised spots. Anyone else experience this? Only thing added to my pre/post liquid diet is a chewable Vitamin.

That doesn't sound good.

Shingles come to mind, but that wouldn't have anything to do with surgery.

Let us know what your doc says!

Yep, you are allergic to something. It could be the antiseptic they used to clean your abdomen, or one of the meds surrounding the surgery. I had exactly the same thing happen (showed up about 5 days postop). We blamed it on the antibiotic, but it's hard to say. I stopped taking the antibiotic, and the rash got better a few days later. I don't know if it would have gotten better anyway, or if it really was the antibiotic. *shrug*

You should let your doc know, either way, so they can help modify your meds, or watch and see.

@Cpeeps23

I had something similar after surgery. It was contact dermatitis and was a nightmare. The only thing that worked was: Prednicarbate Ointment 0.1%. It's a Rx. It saved me.

I had that too! Idk what it was. I used Body Shop nut butter and did a lot of scratching (gently). Drove me crazy though. No explanation was given to me.

I also have it, I believe it is a reaction to the glue that they used as a dressing. Better now but I am almost 2 weeks out

I had hives the third week post-surgery. We thought it was the ursodiol, so we stopped it for a few days. The hives did go away, but when I gradually added the ursodiol back, the hives never came back - so God knows what it was.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

        Click on your pic/name. A list will pop up and scroll down to “my surgery”. You can change Surgery specifics there.

        To adjust weight stay on that same page, look left and click on progress. Voila!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
