Mine is tomorrow morning and I'm still just having a hard time believing it. I can't wrap my brain around the fact that it's already here.

Mine is tomorrow morning and I'm still just having a hard time believing it. I can't wrap my brain around the fact that it's already here.

Sent from my SM-G950U using [mention=334354]Trixie82[/mention]. Just think about all the reasons why you wanted the surgery. Think about all the positive things and love in your life and carry those happy thoughts with you. You're about to go take a really nice nap tomorrow and everything is going to feel like puppies and rainbows. Know that we are here for you when you're ready. You're about to embark on an incredible journey and I can't wait to join you! [emoji4] All the best.
I'm all done. My surgery was at about 7:45 this morning. Anesthesia makes me really sick so I was not a happy camper for a few hours. Once that wore off I've been good. Throat is a little sore. Tummy is also sore. Morphine pump is really helping a lot. My nurse got me some warm Decaf tea. It's wonderful. Been sipping Water all day. Did my swallow test. Maybe I can bust out tomorrow instead of Friday.

You sound like you're doing great! CONGRATULATIONS! So nice that you had an early morning surgery. Happy to read your update as I've been thinking of you. Have they had you walk at all? How are gas pains?

That’s good to hear... I was only in one day as well, and my throat was pretty sore too. I remember them taking me up to my room after surgery, and they literally got me off the bed, to walk in my room. I had to pee on the way... so I made it to the bathroom, but couldn’t pee because it hurt too much push. Then pumping fluids in, uggg bathroom trips were a nightmare!!

I've been up walking a few times. They basically said walk as much as you want, just don't be gone more than an hour or we'll worry 🤣. Gas pain has been ok. It was a lot worse this morning. Now it's just a twinge in my right shoulder

Hi all, hope everyone is going fine after their surgeries. I had mine here in Australia and pain relief has been given prior, plus fluctuate meds. All good here. I am recovering very well, except for sleeping so long after the surgery. Sounds like no one has slept as long as I did. Pain has been okay. I am moving around quite well too. Been on top of the nausea. Doing the breathing exercises and wriggling the toes. I was told I would be in hospital 4-5 days. All the best to those yet to have their op.

LOL - good to hear. Love that you're up and walking. Keep up the great work! I guess I'll bring my Fitbit to the hospital.

Hi Friends!! I have a few questions. I'm nine days post op. I'm slowly starting to feel normal. My program has you not drink five minutes before a meal and 30 minutes after. They would like me to take only two pills at a time. Should i also not drink after taking meds? If i get the six meals a day in (not even close yet!) That's 3 hours of not drinking. I'm concerned adout needing to do that with meds as well. Any thoughts? Thank you!!

It's encouraging to see everyone doing well!!

I'm one-week post-op today. My surgery was a success, even though my hospital experience wasn't. I'm happy for everyone who had successful outcomes all the way around.

I feel cheated and still need to vent. I was soooo excited about my big day, so I have that I still fee bitter about the sub-standard CARING I received. Note the word CARING and not CARE. I expected to be treated much differently -- in a more compassionate and CARING way. Instead of being recognized as a chronic pain patient having bariatric surgery, I was treated like someone with ordinary pain. My surgery site was not the source of my pain, but I was treated as though it was. One mg of morphine for me is a Jell-O cup. I was not recognized as a whole person, and when I tried to get relief and mentioned the word GRIEVANCE, everyone turned into SAVE-MY-BUTT mode. There are details that don't give my story a bigger-picture perspective, so just try to imagine feeling dismissed or made to feel as though you had little value and had no right to expect better treatment.

Help me release this anger, please! PLEASE!!! It's time for me to get on with my healing. I don't want to think about my grievances with the hospital any longer. I want to Celebrate the new and improved me. I want to feel happy. Does anyone have a magic wand?

I am so sorry you had to go through that. Vent away. I don't have a magic wand that can make it better but hopefully a reminder that the surgery is over and now you can start a new healthier life will help you see the bright side.

Hey. I’m Bev I’m new here. Having surgery June 26th. Been on liquid diet for 10 days. It’s not as hard as I had thought it would be. Now I have broken out with a cold sore. Aaahhh. I’m wondering if I should call my surgeon and if he might cancel surgery because of it?? What do you think?? Surgery is on Tuesday.

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈
