Recommended Posts

Mine was too! How are you feeling!

I was the 7th as well! I still have a drain in so once i get rid of that i will be super happy! No other issues other than some slight head hunger (not hungry at all for real thou) and sick of liquid diet! My doc requires liquids for 3 weeks post op so I’m screwed. Lol how are u?

Finally home, feels great, my husband has been a great support and thank god for that. Been relying on him for a lot of things. I’m still in a lot of pain. Can anyone tell me if this will be gone by next week at least.

One week today. Virtually no pain at all. Very little pain from the beginning. I’m hungry the last few days. Still on liquids. I feel very weak though . Probably
Lack of calories ? I haven’t done much this week. My post op is 2/26! Dr is on holiday. I have a group dietician appt Friday. I pray I’ll be able to advance my diet after that and not have to wait for Dr!

My surgery instruction packet said no make up including nail polish but I checked with my surgeon and she said toenail polish is fine but only light colored polish on your fingers. So I’d say ask your surgeon to be sure.

I’m 1 week post op today as well! Feeling good, very little pain. However I agree, feeling weak at times and constipated. Have you had that? Solutions? [emoji30]
I’m on full liquid for 3 weeks, but starting to feel hunger. Maybe not physical hunger, but mental hunger? Prepping dinner for my husband and children, wishing I could partake? The mental part has been the hardest for me. Have you tried any foods? Are you getting al our Protein in? I was thinking maybe scrambled egg? I have my post op appointment on Friday.

One week for me today too! I was able to poop on Sunday, but I give full credit for that to the twice-daily stool softener my doctor prescribed. I am off all the pain meds now, even Tylenol, and started back on the full liquid diet today. So far I’ve had a few tablespoons each of applesauce, Tomato Soup, cream of wheat, and cottage cheese. It’s been like Heaven! I can manage one Protein Shake a day and haven’t had any issue with any of the foods I’ve tried. I feel VERY fortunate to have had a relatively easy recovery.

I had my surgery on 2/9. Not in to much pain. I'm off the pain killers and just doing Tylenol. I am so happy I made the choice to have this surgery. I am still on clears until Friday. I can't wait to progress in my diet!!

Had mine this morning.. well yesterday morning. Surgery was quick wasn’t expecting the gas pain to be this bad, I’m so thankful I have had incredible nurses. I’m swallowing Water fine but once it gets down to the stomach I have a little discomfort! Good luck everyone!





Congrats! How is your gas pain? I found walking very helpful. The doctor ended up ordering gas tablets too.

I had surgery on the 7th too! Can you have Jello or yogurt during the liquid phase. I can’t take aspartame so I was introduced to the True Lime packets. I got unflavored Gelatin and made lime jello ( I was able to chew the jello) so that helped my brain! The 3 weeks will fly by we approaching the 1 week mark!

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes

      I'm a finisher of a half marathon! Completed yesterday on a beautiful day to run. My hips and Knee are pretty angry with me today, but we finished at 2:19. Not bad for my first half. I was able to run with my wife, so that made it much nicer and easier to get through

      Tonight, I swallowed my semi-horse-pill-sized multi-vitamin without wanting to hurl!
      So long, expensive chewable multi-vitamin, from now I can buy the cheaper, tablet vites at Costco.
      Next: try to swallow the actual horse-pill-sized calcium pills without wanting to hurl....
