The only reason I sleep at night is because I do not sleep during the day and I am always doing something during the day to keep both my body and my mind occupied. So when I go to bed I am exhausted.😴

Not cat napping, but not able to sleep much. I'm yawning and ready for bed at 10 pm, but when I actually lie down and get comfortable it's just tossing and turning for at least an hour, then awake at 5 am. I think tonight I'm going to try having a warm shower before I get into bed and maybe some chamomile tea around 9 instead of Water.

I'm 2 weeks post op today and last night was the first full night's sleep. I remember at the beginning how uncomfortable it was and i needed to nap in the day because of the lack of sleep at night.
What i found helpful was putting a pillow under my knees when i was laying on my back...it took the strain and stretched feeling away from my stomach. I had another pillow i hugged when i tried to lay on my side...another way to take the weight off my stomach. It really helped

Before the sleeve I was only able to sleep 4 hours. Then I found this supplement at Earth Fare supermarket for around 19.00 and it worked for me. Took about 4 days for it to kick in. But I took it just before bedtime and it seems to straighten my system out. I hope this will work for you also.

Ok so I just found this thread and I am going to jump on this I Am a Sept 24th bypass buddy. I would love to have someone to talk to who knows what I am going through. I had my surgery at St Josephs hospital in Syracuse NY. My surgeon was Dr Graber.

While I do know itching is a sign of healing for an incision the rash is concerning. Hopefully you will find out why or what is causing the rash today.

Hello everyone,

I had my bypass on Sept 24th and I had a doctor follow up this week and he stated I can start eggs. So this next morning, Wednesday I had 1 scrambled egg and I couldn't finish because I started having this feeling like it was stuck in my chest, not tightening of my chest but stuck. I walked around for a few mins then drank some Water after 30 mins same feeling with water. It been happening with everything except for popsicles. So I have not been consuming too much because of the feeling. Anyone experiencing this?

      2019 - A New Year and a New Start on life!!!!
      On 3/14 - I went into the Hospital at 6am to have my surgery <the sleeve>.   My weigh at that time was 278 pounds.   On this day I was in and out of it I don't remember a whole lot I just remember being in a lot of pain.
      On 3/15 - They made me get up and walk a few times in the middle of the night and walk doctor came in and I was able to be discharged if I was eating and doing everything on his little checklist.   I went home at 6pm.  All I remember was going home crawling into bed and taking more pain medicine it felt like I got hit in the stomach about 50 times.
      On 3/16 - I know they say that walking is the best thing you can do after having surgeries but I was not feeling it at all every time I sat up, I got dizzy needless to say this day I didn't get much walking in and the smell of food just made me gag.  I couldn't even take the pain medicine that was in liquid form.  I stayed in bed for most of the day.
      On 3/17 - I did a lot better on this day I was actually able to eat a little bit of Jell-O and drink a little bit of broth.    Still can't seem to take that pain medicine without wanting to gag.   I definitely have been able to keep down water and even had my nephew take a little bit of Crystal Light and some ice chips and mix it in a bullet to make like a slushie.  That was yummy!
      This brings me to today 3/18 - I have been trying to drink protein water to get protein in my body. I was able to eat some Jell-O today and keep it down. I also was able to sit up for 5 hours and was able to be sociable again.  I was also finally able to take some pain medicine again without gagging <Thank God>.     Pain is slowly going away.   I have my first one week doctor visit on 3/20 so we will see how that goes

      I'm a finisher of a half marathon! Completed yesterday on a beautiful day to run. My hips and Knee are pretty angry with me today, but we finished at 2:19. Not bad for my first half. I was able to run with my wife, so that made it much nicer and easier to get through

      Tonight, I swallowed my semi-horse-pill-sized multi-vitamin without wanting to hurl!
      So long, expensive chewable multi-vitamin, from now I can buy the cheaper, tablet vites at Costco.
      Next: try to swallow the actual horse-pill-sized calcium pills without wanting to hurl....
