October 2018 Sleevers



Recommended Posts

Try things room temprature, go very slowly, literally drop by drop, let your throat get used to it. That said sugar free popsicles worked best for me, rather froze,the pain away. Everybody's body reacts,differently to the trauma of surgery.

You got this! My surgery was done 10/9 in an out patient center. I had my daughter and brother to help me.... I was out of it and sore... fortunately no gas and minimal nausea, but I took the nausea meds and suppository as scheduled because I did not want to be nauseous 🤢everyday gets better! I am still feeling fatigued but doc says it takes days for anesthesia to leave system... today is 4 days out and I feel human.... I was afraid as they prepped me and thought of backing out... then I realized I was letting fear try to hold me back... you have to do something different to get different! Best of Luck!

Spent some time with my aunt and sister today and they were SO judgmental. Kept saying having this surgery is cheating and that I’ve only lost Water weight (30 lbs of water weight??) and that they only respect people who lose weight the “hard” way. I got so mad I almost walked out. Like this isn’t hard??? Ugh. Rant over.

Ugh I’m so sorry! That’s the last thing you need. Try to put it out of your head and know you’re doing this for you and you only! Besides, if this was easy we all would’ve done it years ago!

Thanks @georgetown, you’re right I really didn’t need that at all. I have no support right now and I’m not feeling great and just want to cry a lot now

Hi Oct 11th surgery pals. How are you all doing? I'm still on pain meds and today started this new cramping that hurts terribly. Not sure if it's gas or constipation!!! Not getting much down either. Maybe my age (59) has this surgery hitting me harder than normal.

Sorry to hear you are having problems. I was also sleeved on the 11th. Discharged this afternoon. Pain is considerably less than it has been over the past two days. Walking has seriously helped the gas problem. I’m getting in a least 64 oz. of liquid since yesterday and “eating” more regularly. Sometimes cold liquid works better, other times I react better to warm broth. You’ll master your body and it will all be fine. It just takes some people longer than others. Everyone’s body reacts differently to healing from major surgery. Hang in there....you will do great. Just be patient and follow your doctor’s orders.

Hi everyone! I was sleeved on the 2nd and have a weird pain that started today and wondering if anyone has experienced this or any insight? I have felt great the last 4-5 days; lots of energy, liquids going down great, and incisions healing great. I’ve been doing 20 minute walks the last few days (surgeon suggestion) and today used the treadmill. After my walk today I laid down on the couch and felt this intense spasm type pain the left of my belly button. I got up walked around and it went away quickly and then when I laid down again it came back. It seems to be muscular because when I hold that part of my stomach (it’s like right in my roll over my belly button) it doesn’t happen. I am not sure if this is something to be alarmed about or minor. Any insight is helpful. I will call my office if it gets worse.

It’s hard to do this without support! Have you tried a support group? I found them helpful to talk to others who are going through the process. I’m having my surgery Tuesday but I’m here if you need support!

I was told not to use my treadmill until I got the OK and I was like why? why? why? Apparently people can overdo it without realizing it.
