I am 4 days post, most of the immediate pain is very very mild. Around the port sites itches more than hurts. Which is good cuz that means it’s healing. My main issue is the gas pain. It keeps me up at night. And one thing that nobody tells you, if you’re a female it is likely your will start your period within a day or 2 of the procedure. So you’ll have to deal with that too. So double bloat double cramp. It’s suck. But I have found peppermint tea helps a lot! Almost instantaneous relief. And a good way to get your fluids while simultaneously reducing gas. Just my 2 cents

I ended up being allergic to the anesthesia they used to put me under and so I spent a lot of time in the hospital vomiting and my nausea was high. Even at the worst, the pain was about a 5 out of 10 for me, with 10 being the worst pain I’ve ever felt. The day after the procedure, it was down to a 2. Now at home I’d say I’m pretty comfortably less than a 1, but not quite a zero. My core really hurts to engage and I still need help sitting up in bed and whatnot. Gets better every day with sleep, walking, and fluids!

Personally I had a lot of rib cage pain just after surgery because of the gas. That resolved Day 2 with a lot of walking. With my incisions, it did feel like I had done 200 sit ups. The pain was not unbearable. Like any surgery that involves incisions, you have some pain but it gets better everyday. I am 17 days post op with absolutely no pain now.

How were you able to walk that much with no calories? That's where my issue lies. I put up a post about it. With next to no calories, what did you do? I don't have so much of the gas pain as what I did the first day (surgery on the 30 of October) but OMG, I Have NO energy to even feel like getting out of bed. :(

Good question Meg. When I say I walked a lot I don't mean like miles be caucuses you are right, I was weak from preop minimal intake diet and no intake just after post op. In the hospital, I walked around the unit several times a day. I would say it was probably about 80-100 meters each time. I know and understand it is so hard trying to even be motivated to get but keep trying. How are you doing on your Protein Shakes? I made myself drink per my program to get a bit of energy. It will get better everyday believe me.
