I'm happy for you! Mine was last Thursday and I'm already feeling much better. It's been a chore getting all my fluids down but it's a work in progress.

Hi Lisa. I’m laying here in bed after having surgery today. No pain breathing fine. Have swallow test tomorrow. Hope I pass with flying colors. Look forward to sipping on water! Keep up the good work and let’s keep in touch!

Thanks. Waiting to go down for my swallow study. Once that goes well I’ll be out on clears and then if tolerating will go home. Pain is it as bad as I thought. I feel really good.

Pain pumps are awesome! I was hospitalized and had abdominal surgery last May and they had me on Fentanyl through the pain pump. Every 8 minutes I was pressing the button. It was wonderful!

When I had my another abdominal surgery in August of last year, they had me on morphine through the pain pump. This did not work for me and I itched all over while taking it. They think I may be allergic to morphine. It was all better when they switched me to Dilaudid. Much stronger so I received it less often, but it worked with no itching. I stayed on that until I could take oral pain meds again.

Keep it up!

Thanks for the post. Yes I am a little itchy today. Have to tell nurse. I have Tylenol IV going which seems to be taking the edge off.

      I am struggling.  I've been depressed, so I've felt totally "over it" in terms of staying on plan.  While I've mostly been eating what I should be eating (but erring most on the side of fatty foods), I'm eating way too much throughout the day, having many small meals even when I'm not hungry because I'm sitting at home bored,  I'm exhausted and dehydrated and can't get myself to sleep less than 10-12 hours let alone exercise (even roller skating, which I love).  I feel like am doing this all wrong and am paying the price with a stall.

        I am sorry to hear you are struggling. Do what you need to do to stay healthy mentally and physically. I hope you can get to the other side of your depression. Hang in there.

      I had my VSG on 11/19/18. All went very smoothly at the hospital, I was able to get up and walk a bunch, and was discharged at 11 am the next morning. Unfortunately, at about day 6 I noticed that I had thrush and am still taking meds to get rid of it. The first was Nystatin and now on Diclofenac. I also got VERY constipated from the iron supplements, but luckily some Miralax unclogged me. My highest ever weight was 319lbs, I was 282lbs at my first visit with my surgeon and 270lbs on my surgery date. As of this morning, December 9th I am 245lbs.
