Best thing to do... find something to occupy your time with, to distract you from the doubt/regret. Everyone heals at different rates, but just remember that everyone heals. The pain and issues you are feeling right now *WILL* go away. Yes it's tough, but it's very much worth it. Stay strong!

First 3 days are the days of regret after that it gets way better, it’s the best decision I have made and thinking back my only issue is why I didn’t do it sooner.

My advice start walking and don’t stop you’ll feel much better, And as soon as you are clear to start the gym 2 weeks from now for cardio do it

I had my surgery Monday and the regrets happened right away. i totally get it. For me, it was thinking what did I just do to my body, the pain was intolerable. Only on day 3 out (yesterday) did I start to feel better and move around a lot more. Today, day 4 out of surgery I am doing about 3700 steps a day, pain is much better, consuming my liquids and clear foods. Stay strong and move and get those fluids in you.

I was in considerable pain for 3 weeks then nothing. It gets better. Walk, use that stupid spiro-whatever-breathing-meter, and take whatever pain meds you need.

Safe Journey!

@newmeinfla GIRL, you got this! Had my sleeve revision on the 25th. Can't stress enough to walk! That gets the gas/air bubbles out. Do not lay down after drinking...that will only make it worse and use medication when you need to! It's a rough uphill but just follow your new routine and you'll feel a bit better everyday! Rooting for you!

Same here sleeve in the 25th...the gurgling is the worst part. Praying that ends soon. Today is the first day that I have even been close to reaching my Fluid goal.

It's a process and everyone is different
I'm 5 months post and 50 pounds down
I still get the gurgling stomach. I keep Tums on my car, purse, and beside my bed. Take it slowly, don't worry about heavy exercise right now. Concentrate on learning your new eating habits. Oh yeah I still have slight discomfort for the surgery sites
Hang in there and take the pressure off of yourself

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
