Just got home. Spent three nights at hospital.

Gotta tell ya, it sucks. No sugar coating.

Whoever it was who told me to get a suppression sleeve for my stomach thank you. It's the biggest help.

It helps support your stomach. It feels like your guts are falling out because you lose a little strength in your stomach wall...this helps tremendously.

Sure, I'm happy the most painful part is over, no regrets, I knew what I was getting into, it just sucks for about two days.

And I'm sure I'

ll be happier and happier as I heal and the pain goes away and the weight drops.

Just saying, it's no walk in the park. Or no picnic.

Basically it's no picnic in the park that you walked to.

It's kinda like, someone knocked your ass out, stabbed you six times in the gut and you woke up in the hospital unable to eat anything or sleep at all.

Did you have complications? Why were you in the hospital 3 days? Or is that standard policy where you have surgery. I spent about 26 hours at the hospital.

It isn't that painful for everyone we all have different tolerances for pain. I didn't feel that bad at all. I never took a pain pill once I left the hospital. My worst pain was gas and a little nausea the first day.

I don't want you to get super scared and back out.

I had virtually no pain. For real. Don't freak out!

I was ok too. I had mild discomfort but I didn't feel like my guts were coming out. It was never that bad and by day 2 at home I was off pain meds.

        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
