I'm five day post op and so far no issues except for some gas pain.

I don't think I'm getting all my fluids in. I'm trying to do 1oz every 15min but I'm full all the time. Pain meds make me sleepy so I only take it at night. I had one BM 2 days after I got home but that's it.

Thank you for the tip about the pillow, it helped so much on the way home.

The nurse in my class the other day told us that it is okay not to get all of your fluids in the first couple weeks as long as you sip sip sip throughout the day and try and make sure you stay hydrated.

Up and down like a snail is a good analogy. I was told to drink 3 Protein drinks a day once I get home. I do what I can. I feel like if I don't I'm only starving myself and that's no good. I don't know if you're going through this but my incisions do not like to have clothes on them. Is that weird? I can have a pillow up against it, but that's it, so that's something at least. Ice helps but after a while drives me nuts. Other than that I feel great. Beatrice (what I call my new tool) hasn't been giving me too much hassle, so that's a plus. I'm so glad I did this.

My surgery is in less than 2 weeks and I was worried about the incisions and clothing as well! I hope I can have some sweats on or pajama pants atleast lol. Beatrice! lol I laughed when I read that. I will have to name mine as well.:lol::lol:

I was sleeved yesterday. I was great walked no pain. I felt nauseous 1x & they gave me meds for that. Today had the barium test so they could see if any leaks. Since then feeling kinda blah. I'm supposed to be sipping 1 oz of Water each hr my stomach cramps up with it something terrible. I had dry heaves earlier today. I'm starting to swell up & they changed the Fluid bag to something without sugar because my sugar went up to 177 & it's normally low 90's. The cramping in my stomach feels like it's seizing up. I keep walking walking walking hoping that goes away. I'm also freezing most of the time & I'm rarely cold

I read somewhere that the cramps may come from the liquid being too cold or too hot. Have you tried room temp Water?

I can have clothes on.. the incisions don't like to be covered. It's getting better though. Only thing annoying me right now is all the itching from the healing. The pain is going down, from the 6 I told them in the hospital it's now down to a nice low grumble of 2. I wore pajamas in the hospital, and I'm still wearing them now. I just pull down the front to give the incisions some air.

In other news. Since surgery 11 days ago. I am down 13.8 lbs and that's before the gas and Water weight after surgery, if I add that I've lost 16.8 lbs. I'm doing good to get 50 oz of water in me and I'm still trying to get the Protein Drinks in me. I've got the water with me all the time, so I'm hoping the ounces will continue to rise.

Beatrice is doing well, as long as I don't guzzle, and I won't say that I don't. It's a hard habit to break. but as long as I don't guzzle she doesn't complain. When I do guzzle she likes to strangle the pipe and that kind of hurts. I have to wait until it goes down. I keep trying to use that as a lesson but I seem to like to do things the hard way. Beatrice hasn't made me hurl since I got home from the hospital so that's a plus. I just gotta remember she rules my life right now and I need to follow her rules. That may sound silly, but if you think about it learning how to use our new tool is a new learning experience.

Good luck to you @GoddessMoon, I'm sure you'll do great. Take your time, Walk those halls and sip sip sip.

Yes girl we have to listen to our new stomach. I am pain free for the most part. When I go for long walks i don’t know why it’s pain. I am down 15.8 pounds.

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
