Sleeved on Nov. 1.

Recovery room was rough and I threw up a couple times. After that I was wheeled to a room and slept for several more hours. All total I slept 12 hours post op. People kept talking to me but I was so out of it. I don't remember my husband kissing me and going home for the night.

I finally woke up at 9pm and drank some chicken broth and walked 2 miles in laps around my ward. Sipped Water. Then I konked back out.

I was up every 45 minutes going pee all night long.

Woke up the next day (today) and felt great. Walked over 4 miles throughout the day waiting for hubby to pick me up at 5p. The staff was calling me marathoner. I inspired other patients to get up and walk with me.

I had a small cup of yogurt and some tomatoes Soup and a premier chocolate shake throughout the day.

Good luck to all three other November sleevers.

Wow you are really inspiring! Congratulations, you are knocking this out of the park! How's your pain level? Do you feel like the walking helped with the pain?

No pain yet. They were putting pain meds in my IV every few hours. I'll let you know how I feel tomorrow after being home and the meds have worn off. Walking was a breeze. No passing gas yet either unless I did it in my sleep.

You'll do great. Just remember to take care of yourself and only do what you feel comfortable and able to do. I walked a lot of loops around the ward because I felt good enough to do so. Other patients joined me and would walk one or two loops and that was plenty for them. Also take your time. Walk at a comfortable pace. It's not a race. Also sip sip sip on your Water.

Take whatever comfort items to need with you. I brought my special blankie, pajamas, robe, slippers, brush, toothbrush and toothpaste, chap stick, meds (which was the only thing I didn't use), phone and charger, and a couple extra undies.

This is awesome, thank you! I just picked up my meds from the pharmacy so I'm good to go on that. Did you bring those little ounce cups home with you to measure your Fluid intake?

Yes as a matter of fact, the nurse gave me a stack of about a dozen of them! She says it should take 10 minutes to drink one down.

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.
