Hi all, had my Gastric Bypass yesterday at 8:30 a.m. went really well. No pain except where the drain is (it will be taken out this morning before they release me). The hardest part was them trying to take blood for labs this morning) The best part, a healthier life to look forward to.

Good luck to everyone already recovering this month and all of you that still awaiting your surgery.

my surgery is feb 13, 2018. I go for my final weigh in on Monday. Nervous about the surgery and apparently quite smelly at the moment. This is normal/ketosis I guess. The shakes taste so bad. Been on two weeks of them and haven't cheated at all


Hope your day procedure went well! I’m scheduled on Friday and have had the same liquid diet with no cheating...It’s been very difficult feeding a family of 5 but not myself. I feel like I stink but my husband assured me I don’t. Lol part of me wonders if he is just trying to be nice.

Im so glad you’re doing well! I’m also happy to hear some positive recovery stories :) My surgery is Thursday. I’m not too nervous but it seems all I see lately are horrible stories about recovery. It’s refreshing to hear good stuff.

Hey peeps I had my sleeve done Friday and returned home from the hospital today...of course the first thing I did was get in the scale. I noticed I put 10lbs back on. I believe I maybe paranoid. But I had a problem with my heart rate and very low blood pressure. Has this happened to anyone else?

It went well. I'm 6 days post surgery now, I started to feel more like myself on day 5. Don't necessarily feel hungry, but regular food is starting to smell not too bad. The surgery was the scariest thing I've ever done, but I'm hopeful it will be worth it. The nurses were nice and reassuring, they sent me home a day early due to my progress. You spend so much time on drugs (recovering from anesthesia, on pain meds, just generally sleeping) that you will be home before you know it. Don't be afraid to ask questions if you're nervous. Perhaps ask for something other than morphine since that stopped my ability to void my bladde temporarily. Wanted to wish you good luck!

I am very slowly starting to feel like myself also (except that real food sure sounds good!). Tonight I am venturing out for the first time post-op to attend my youngest son’s swim banquet. I will not be able to eat the dinner and figure I’ll take crystal light and maybe egg drop Soup so that I’m not completely slobbering over everyone else’s bbq. Funny enough, I don’t feel hungry and have to remind myself to take in enough fluids, but the thoughts of foods are killing me!
