VSG on 8/28. But in pain.



Recommended Posts

Hello fellas. I had my Revision from band to sleeve on 8/28. So far I have had constant pain in my joints since then. I had swelling in my hand do to a bad iv during surgery. Which also caused chest pains that I had to get hospitalized because they weren’t sure if I had PE’s. Or pneumonia. Which I had neither. They have since subsided some. Now I am having swelling in my knees. Very painful. And it feels like all this pain is making it worse to do the things I need to do help get better from the surgery. And of course, I can’t take any anti inflammatories. I’ve used ice, heat, and elevation. Any other ideas that anyone has would greatly help. I wanna get moving.

Sounds like some toxin build up maybe? Really push the Water intake to see if that helps flush things out.

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
