Sitting at Dr now for my week check up, im only taking Vitamin D bc I was deficient . I got the glue too, no staples and they gave me a nausea patch behind my ear so my recovery has mostly only bothered me at the incision sites. Any one else’s having their stomach actually growl and rumble as if you’re starving?

Congratulations everyone on the weight loss! sleeping is still a bit of an issue. I always wake up at least once a night. My stomach rumbles and growls but not all the time.

Are you guys starting phrase 3 pureed? How is it going?

So happy I made the desition to have this surgery. Started walking 3 days ago and Im doing 20 min. Like they told me to do. Hard at first but seems to get better each day. I checked the distence with the car and it is just under 1mile. Hope everyone is doing well.

Congrats everyone on the weight loss! I am definitely able to eat a little more, but still struggling with the Water. But I generally don’t get more than 700 calories per day. I

The worst part is, I feel so tired! I am supposed to go back to work next week and I am exhausted all day long. I barely get 4000 steps a day ugh!

I tell you, I can’t wait for eggs once I get to mushy stage after 4 weeks!

How’s everyone feeling today?

How is everyone doing today? Two weeks since surgery today! I don’t know about anyone else, but my weight hasn’t moved much this week. I am still pretty tired and really need to fight to get the Water in, but I am trying. How is everyone feeling?

Feeling great today , I started pureed foods last night (a couple hours early ) had salmon salad. I feel so much better now that I have found Vitamins I can have that don't cost a fortune. Still working to get up to 64oz of pure Water but I forget to eat and drink some times then I'm rushing to get it in. I'm going to set alarms. How is everyone else doing?

      I had my surgery just about a month ago. I generally feel very good. It takes some time to learn how to eat again. Small meals, more often. Eat slow. Eat little. Don't force yourself. If you eat too fast, or are not careful, or you don't think while you eat, you can get in trouble (you'll get reflux, feel like throwing up, but just walk around for a few minutes and it will go away as you digest.)
      The first few days after the surgery were tough. Hard to eat, hard to drink. Now it's a lot better. It took probably a week to get to a satisfactory level and feel normal. Just bear with it because it gets a lot better.
      If I can give a suggestion to those of you who are going to go through the surgery, is one: be very rested. I made the mistake to sleep only 3-4 hours the night before the surgery, and after the surgery I felt awful. In addition, the hospital did not have a room for me, and I spent overnight in the recovery room. That did not help. I had to stay at the hospital a second night because of that. Make sure you are rested and you have a room. You need to rest after surgery.
      Since the surgery, I have lost an average of 1 lb per day. Fantastic! I have not exercised a lot yet, but I started doing something the past couple of weeks. I am sure as I shed more weight I will start working out more seriously, or at least move. Just walking every day for half hour would be enough for the first few months.
      Good luck to you all. Believe in it! I can see why everyone told me that it would change my life. I can already see it as I am wearing 2-size smaller jeans today.

      I ALMOST sneezed today - first time post-op. It was coming but as I flailed around to get a pillow to splint my belly, I lost it.  Usually I hate that feeling but in this case I'm okay with it. I'm not pain-free yet so I would love to avoid a sneeze until then if I can!

        Did they send you home with the Incentive Spirometer? Are you using it every hour? Tip for after laparoscopic surgery is to do deep breathing exercises to help expel the gas from your abdomen. Take a long slow deep breath in, as long as you can then hold it, while holding press down into it slightly (like doing a small crunch) the object is to stretch a little and to slightly increase the pressure in your abdomen to force the gases into the bloodstream for processing. Helps out quite a bit.

      2. Karen Kenney

        you may still have gas from surgery if you are not walking, please walk as much as you can even if it's just around the block. Walking, sweating. peeing, breathing, farting, all will expel the gas from your body. Use your spirometer too. Good luck home you feel better soon!
