I'm feeling absolutely fine today. I have been up and walking around regularly since 2 hours after my op. They gave me dispersable paracetamol around 9pm. Offered me tramadol but I really don't need it so I've refused so far. I'm sipping Water happily but still on a drip. The general anaesthetic was the only horrible bit for me so far. I took an asthma attack when I went under but thankfully I am in good hands and they've looked after me wonderfully. I'm waiting to be waterproofed up so I can shower now. Want to look my best for my visitors later xx

I had my surgery on the 10th and I’m in so much pain!

Sorry to hear that. I know day 2 post op was the WORST for me. Things did get better. I’m actually going to start back to work on Monday. Please keep us posted on how your doing. Saying a prayer that things get better for you soon.

Hi everyone. So I had my surgery yesterday. Everything went well thank God. The roughest part was right after surgery. I woke with the tube in my mouth so couldn't breathe, it was like I lost my sight too; could only see colours. I was taken to ICU for the night (protocol). When I got here I was in alot of pain and just wanted to vomit the whole time,and I did. My poor parents were there and my dad had to leave. I saw them I was vomiting blood but it was just from the breathing tube that had been in. It felt like it went on for ages but wasn't that long. They sorted my pain meds and I passed out asleep. When I woke I was like a new woman! I was comfortable and no pain. Same today. I'm being kept well medicated lol but I feel great. I have no pain, just a feeling of pressure now and then. Only taking 50mls Water per hour which is more than enough for me. I'm shocked I feel so great. Thank God for that. All of you that are waiting for your ops don't worry, yes there will be a rough period but it doesn't last and then you'll find it hard to remember,like a dream. I'm so so soooooo happy.

As your fat starts to "melt" all kinds of hormones etc get released so,its very normal. I wonder about all,the pesticides I might have in mind. Americans aren't fit for human consumption cause we are full of DDT and such. I was told,this by a retired cannibal, he was a New Guinea headhunter before he found Jesus, said nobody in his tribe would eat us because we would give them horrid indigestion. Funny what one learns if you live as long as me.

      Well, I am still on schedule for a December 26th surgery, but no longer sleeve, but instead bypass. Here is a link to my latest YouTube video explaining why the change:

      Still stuck at a 50# weight-loss after three years. Starting to think the rest is never going to come off. I have decided to see a bariatric doctor, where I currently live, since I have moved away from the one that did my original surgery. Also starting to wonder what weight-loss percentage is considered a failure for this surgery. I don't want to be one of the unsuccessful stories, but I'm becoming very discouraged. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I lost the weight I did, but why won't the rest GO?!

      I have been very busy lately and my arm has finally stopped hurting, still no lifting, but my weight loss started up again so i am back to trying to find the right calorie number to hold in place. Its weird to think this way now and i am having a harder time increasing my calorie intake than i thought i would. It feels wrong to tell myself to eat more. So many years of yo-yo dieting messing with me right now. The Mental game just never ends.

        Wow, your arm hurt a long time. Glad it finally resolved. Hope you can get back to your weight training soon, I know you enjoyed that.

      2. allwet

        yea i had/have a pinched nerve at the top of the elbow and it is a very slow thing to recover from. The arm is weaker than before but feeling much better when i use it.

        every time i thought it was better i would start some form of training and it would go numb again all along the tricep. so its very light exercises and treadmill :(

      3. Orchids&Dragons

        Is there anything they can do to "un-pinch" it?

      4. allwet

        stretches and never putting pressure on back of arm, like you do if you use the bicep or tricep curl machines. Surgery is a last resort but doc says i need to try everything else first.

        The loss of so much fat around the nerve bundle allowed it to move around more.

      5. Orchids&Dragons

        That stinks. Sorry. One of those d@mn unintended consequences.
