I was June 6th. Had an allergic reaction to two medications and ran 102 fever. Had to stay an extra day and lost another week of work. Horrible experience!!

How long do we have to sleep on our backs? I'm a side sleeper too.

I slept in the recliner. It was much easier. I never tried the pregnancy pillow but I did sleep in the recliner in the hospital and for a week after I got home. I told the doctor at my first appt. that I was having trouble sleeping and he was nice enough to prescribe me Ambien which helped me immensely

My inner nurse is coming out, and I want to provide a public service announcement to those of you who are about to have your surgeries. Remember that pain meds and anesthesia don't bode so well for your poor ole bowels. After you are done and headed home, have whoever is taking care of you get you some stool softeners. Take at least one per day, and don't let your bowels setup with concrete. I promise that it is impossible to strain to use the bathroom with the pains that will be in your bellies. I wanted to share the "tmi" so that you all can learn from my experience. I know i cant be the only one who has experienced this. 😖😖

I'm sorry for your trouble but I'm thankful for you sharing, @Hal711. Can we swallow the regular tablet stool softeners after surgery? Also, do you recommend starting a couple days before surgery already?

They told me the regular small ones were fine because they are small. And it wouldnt hurt to take them before hand.

Ok, I'll take one tonight. Surgery is on Monday and they just bumped me up from 12:30 P.M. to 11 A.M. Things are getting real. I'm ready to lose this weight!!! Woot, woot!

Awesome! I feel good so far. No nausea or anything. Just some pain on my right side that is lingering. How about you?

I feel good no nausea either. I have some occasional sharp pain on my left side but tolerable. I’m trying not to use the oxycodone and just take Tylenol. I can’t wait to “eat” something. So hard with everyone around eating actual food

I feel ya. Today is the first day i havent taken anything for pain. I honestly am not hungry. I am content with my Jello and bullion lol. When the time comes, I'm sure I will be ready, but right now I could care less about real food cuz I am always so thirsty.

You might need some potassium.

Update from oz: Lol. Haven’t heard that about Kangaroo pouch. I too hate the fluids. The after taste is not good. I am now taking nausea meds. Suggestion, I was going too fast too soon, so now one sip, one number of sudoku puzzle, next sip. Magnesium is the best for legs cramps. You can get that in the powder form and mix with Water. I have developed sinus issues probably from heating on in the hospital and get to go home tomorrow. As for sleeping on your side, last night was the first time for me, my pain was is left side. My op was and it is now Saturday.

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!
