@UncleBreezy. I haven't been drinking much at all. Been too scared to see how my stomach will react. I'll start tomorrow trying to get the fluids down. Ugh. Lol. Hope you are doing well.
I’m so scared of dehydrating and going back into the hospital that I force myself to drink. A couple of times it has been painfully, so I’m assuming that’s my stomach telling me when it’s full and can’t take any more liquid. I back off for about 20 minutes and the pain goes away. Then I start drinking again. It’s all a learning process. Your body will tell you what it can and can’t handle.

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.


Yes, you are right and I was feeling so good it wasn’t even a concern but we are still so fragile a week and a half out. And with my surgeon recommending walks and elliptical. I think the issue is that I was going faster than I would have if walking outside at this point. But 2.7mph is normally very slow for me. I have been on the go the last few days as well so it may be a combo of things.

I had my surgery 10/3/18 it’s been about a week and few days I don’t know if it’s working for me or not. Can I have a stall in the beginning? Trying not to regret it. HWR (335) pre surgery (324) today anywhere from 316 give or take my scale changes everything I move it so I can’t trust it no more. Any advice is gratefully appreciated.

You have lost almost 20 lbs and that’s great!!! What are you eating right now? Have you added to liquids? Are you staying in a calorie range? I had surgery on the 2nd and after week 1 could add drinkable yogurts and runny Soups blended.. 60-80 g of Protein and a 600-800 calorie range. I noticed I didn’t loose the first two days (was even up) of adding the Soup and yogurt. Maybe you are just adjusting?

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.
I'm having the same thing! A pain to the left of my belly button. It's not where any incision is. Its internal. I'm afraid that I pulled something by overdoing it.

Congrats on the weight loss!! I haven’t lost any weight since day five I had a revision lapband to sleeve on October 1st. I’m 13 days out and still the same weight since day five, I had an issue of not keeping in dairy or artificial sweeteners. So I couldn’t do Protein Shakes. I’m hoping now that I’m on stage 3 and just starting to get the Protein I need I will start to lose.

When does yours hurt? Mine hurts only when I lay down and relax my stomach. It doesn’t hurt getting up or even sitting like the other pain from the beginning was. I just hope it is not a hernia

Right now I am doing sugar free popsicles ,broth , apple sauce and Jello I was doing the drinkable yogurt but my friend told me that could have been my problem because it’s high in sugar so I stopped like two days ago. The last two days I barley ate or drank anything and and still nothing has changed. I know I shouldn’t be taking in no more then 400 calories

So important to drink, you don’t want to get dehydrated. Call your doctor about the pain, they should have an oncall doctor to speak with. Good luck, I hope you feel better soon.🙏

      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
