Had my rny 3 days ago. So far so good. Only had to take tylenol once since home. Every time I walk it feels like my insides are jiggling. Dont think im hitting my water/protein targets. I should start writing stuff down.
Had a band in 2010 worked moderately and temporarily—granted i wasnt doing my fair share.
hopefully this time around will be better 🙏

I use an app called baritastic to keep track of Fluid and protien. It's awesome and free!

My friends I am invading for just a second. I am posting with one eye on my phone and one eye on America's Got Talent, they just had a children's chior,on called the Voices of Hope, Their song spoke to self-doubt, about reaching above it to be the best ME possible. I'm sure in your preop journeys each of you had doubts and now that your surgeries are completed you still have doubts things are going to finish up correctly. Never doubt,yours3lf, you each have strengths still,untapped. You can and you will do it and very soon I will be over here with you writing my own chronicle. Save me a place, within a very few weeks📅 I will be one of you!😝

I hope it's okay to jump in this thread! It is technically winter for me here in Australia but my surgery is 5th July which I know is summer for those across the pond

Oh no! What type of complications did you have, if you don’t mind me asking? Glad your home. Congrats on the weight loss!

I am home! And here is my account of how things went. First night, I felt pretty good. Day 2 was ROUGH. I was in so much pain! The nurses didn’t walk me around at all. The main nurse wouldn’t give me any pain meds. I felt awful, like my belly felt like I was going to explode and I asked myself why I had done this. I kept reminding myself why but I was miserable. Then there was a shift in nurses and the new nurse seen that the previous nurse had been denying me my required every 3 hour pain meds! So she made sure that I got them and made sure the nurse after her administered them to me as well. Everything looked good so I came home today. I’m thankful for my nurses who did listen and try to help me. Hope everyone else had a better experience than I did

Almost 48 hours post op and came home around the 24 hour mark yesterday. Have pain meds but haven’t taken any today - one incision site feels the worst, but the others are ok. I woke up a few hours after also wondering what i was thinking to do this - but had some awesome nurses and support (and pain meds). Slept pretty well last night and took a quick shower today. Trying hard to keep up with fluids and be active enough while resting...am actually feeling hungry so gonna try my hand at a popsicle now. :-) hope everyone else is feeling ok.

      I had gastric sleeve surgery 5 years ago. My gastric reflux has recently got so bad that's the acid burns into my ears. I was given a lidocaine solution that would help with the burning pain in my throat. I spoke to my gastroenterologist about a procedure I saw online for the reflux.  She said I didn't qualify so I went to see the doctor that did this procedure who happens to be a bariatric doctor. He explained why I was not good for the procedure because I had a stricture in the esophagus a hiatal hernia. Due to the gastric sleeve the acid is being forced up into my throat. The doctor wants to do a bypass which should relieve that pressure. I am going for an upper GI tomorrow.  I was wondering if anyone else as experienced this. I am new here I do not go on social media so I don't know my way around I will try to find my way back here.

        I was revised from a sleeve to a bypass 10 months out from my sleeve. I was waking up with acid in my mouth and burning the back of my nose. The bypass worked beautifully in eliminating the reflux.

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!
