Haven't told anyone



Recommended Posts

Thank you for responding with some positive information I can consider instead of name calling. There's always one in the crowd who really does need a net which is part of the reason I'm not even telling people. I only posted looking for suggestions on the best way to get home without telling anybody I had surgery. I am a responsible person and have no intention of driving down the road high on painkillers. I'm glad to hear things went well for you and you were able to get yourself home safely and uneventfully. I am earnestly praying the same for myself.

I was told that we had to have an actual person take us home, no Uber, lyft, bus, cab, etc. Can you confirm with the hospital?

Maybe you could make friends with a local Uber and have them act like your friend who is taking you home.

Also, they pretty much made me take a pain pill before I was released. I didn't need it and I didn't want it, but I didn't really feel like I had much of a choice.

Thanks for the info. I kinda been thinking of those same things. I've also been giving Uber a second look. I'm just not sure right now exactly what I am going to do, but for now I'm going keep my secret.

Wow, I didn't know they would actually kinda force that stuff on you. Maybe as long as it's non narcotic that would be okay. I guess I'll have to have several options ready and available to me whenever I get ready to cross that bridge which I hope will be soon. Thanks everyone for all the advice.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.

      I have two initial consultations coming up. November 30th I am traveling to Richmond Virginia to VCU and on December 2nd I am consulting with a bariatric surgeon in Salem Virginia. 
      Let's hope my insurance is good for this decision. 
      I wanted an extended tummy tuck but I cannot justify the out of pocket expense yet. Pray for me.
