Go in tomorrow first thing in the morning. Some words of assurance on the surgery itself would be nice. I've never had any kind of anesthesia, so I'm more worried about that than anything. Anyone else freak out about that? Words of encouragement on that would be nice. Do you just knod off or is it instant?

I also am tomorrow morning. You will have the opportunity to speak to the anesthesiologist before surgery. Tell them your concerns. My experience as always been to go out quickly. Tell will be talking to you and you won’t even realize it. Best to you and me. 🙏🙏

Same issue! I dont think its the steri strips just the incisions themselves. So itchy!

Sent from my SM-G960U using BariatricPal mobile app

Yes. And I forgot and scratched one of my incisions open. I covered it up with like 6 band aids. I hope it closes back up without me having to go back to the hospital.

Hi JennieJuniper. I hope your day has gotten a little better. Can you go take a walk with some good music on and try to clear your head?

Hi Georgetown.. I’m working from home today but can’t concentrate. I feel like everyone is yelling at me for feeling sick and it’s just so frustrating. Raining here today but maybe a walk would help :) thanks!!

Hi folks,

I had my surgery October 3,2018

it went really well and I came home the next day. I did great til day 4,5 when I started having severe pain and I had to be readmitted to the hospital. I had some spleen complications. I am home again since day 7 and I am feeling super antsy, super itchy in my incisions, and super wishing I could “eat” not drink my food. I am definitely struggling last night and today with “food withdrawal”

Four days until surgery. The liquid pre-op diet + no coffee has me a little weak and confused. But excited!

This is the last time I'm posting this list, but if someone else wants to take over updating it, please feel free. I just lost a family member (my father's husband, after losing my father last year), and I've kind of got other things to focus on right now. Don't look for me on the boards for a while. Thanks for understanding.

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights

      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
