Has anyone dealt with pretty bad bruising? I am 3days post op and I’m not sure how normal this is!!! This bruising goes down to my pubic area! Any insight in this? I know they said some bruising is normal!

That looks nasty. Does your doctor have someone covering phones on the weekend? I'd call.

I called and without them seeing it they just said bruising is normal I did tell them the extent to this bruising but they just kept telling me it’s normal! I’m thinking I’m gonna be heading back in there within the next few hours because it has spread since last night

Sorry, but bruises crotch to to navel is not normal unless you've always been a bruiser. Good luck! Is it particularly tender? Do you have a fever?

No fever no signs of infections! I’m mostly worried about internal bleeding! I do bruise really easy but didn’t expect that big of one! The surgeon is calling me back with that I should do! Thank you for your input I will let u know how I make out!!

You might put ice on it in the meantime. That would help if its just a bad bruise.

So they told me to ice it and the swelling for the most part went away they said to mark where it’s at and if it goes beyond the mark to come right in! As of right now I’m just monitoring it!

Do your bruises stick out and look swollen? Like puffy around the whole bruise?

My bruising was in two areas and both looked worse than the original posters, but I did have hernia repair at the same time and my surgeon also said he had to pull some fat from my stomach walls, so I would expect bruising.

Do you know what your surgeon meant by “pull some fat from the walls”? If this is too personal, my apologies and please ignore my question.

It’s because of the blood thinners they give you to prevent clots. Happens to a lot of us! Very normal!

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
