Anyone else experience zero pain after surgery?



Recommended Posts

I’m sitting in my hospital room right now (day after roux en y surgery) and I’ve had absolutely no pain since I came out of surgery. Just wondered if anyone else experienced this? All the reading I did said most people were in excruciating pain so I’m surprised by this. Not even much “discomfort” from incision sites or gas either. If I didn’t have holes in my stomach I wouldn’t have believed I had surgery.

My pain was minimal at best. I had some slight pain getting in and out of bed, but that pain was dulled by the pain meds in the IV. It grew a bit once I was removed from the IV, but by no means was it really anything more than mild.

Mine very minimal as well. I kept asking, "Are you sure you did anything?"

Minimal. I bounced back quickly from surgery.

I haven't had mine yet but that was how I felt after my hysterectomy. Once my catheter was out I was "jumping" out of bed, forgetting that I had the pain pump still attached! Surprised all the medical staff with how active I was

This was exactly me, too. Like, are you sure you removed part of my stomach??

When I was in the hospital they gave me "routine" Toradol through my IV even though I wasn't having any pain. I was there less than 24 hrs post op. Once I got home I have never taken any pain meds or nausea meds. I'm 4 weeks post op today and I couldn't have ask for a better recovery!

Almost 0 pain here. I had 6 hourly paracetamol (Tylenol) the first day but nothing after.

      I'm struggling a little. My younger sister wants to go out to a buffet for Thanksgiving so no one has to cook and stress. While I appreciate her sentiment, I also don't want to pay $65 a head (4 ppl in my family) especially since I can't eat much AND buffets are so difficult to deal with overeating. I told my sister after thinking about it that buffets aren't okay for me. She seemed to understand, but was disappointed. Am I being selfish by not going along with the plan? I purchased a turkey to cook and I can make sides that are bariatric friendly. Sigh, this one is bothering me. I might be emotionally low right now because my dog passed away recently and that is contributing to my thinking.

        Sorry about your pup. That's a real grief you need to allow yourself to express.

        So $65 for each person is hefty. We couldn't afford that for TG for 4. But buffets don't freak me. I wouldn't even pay--just sneak a bite or two off a plate here or there. No biggie. But doing a restaurant or keeping food simple is also what works for most.

        Sorry you're having a tough time about the upcoming holiday. Remember, our joy will mostly be with being with those we love.

        So sorry about the dog. It is so hard when they pass.

        Yes, that $65 is super steep. You'd really be paying $260 for 3 people to eat and you to watch. Yikes! And I'm sure they wouldn't let you in without paying. Maybe just beg your sis to put it off until next year when you might be able to enjoy it too? I mean, honestly, you've already got the darn turkey. You're still a work in progress and you sure don't want to throw up in the restaurant. Maybe thinking about it that way will help your sister understand. By next Thanksgiving, you'll be far more sure of what you can handle and what you can't.

        Good luck.

      One Week Post Op today! I feel great and almost walking back to normal. I have learned in this short week to not drink your dinner protein shake at a constant sipping. I spent 30 min the last two nights trying to release the pressure in my chest. Lesson Learned! I am back down to Surgery Date Weight as of this morning, actually half a pound less. Now to look forward to actual losses LOL. I guess i had a lot of gas and liquids that are taking time to leave my body. Its all good, it will be gone eventually! I have no regrets, and take each day as it comes and look forward to the next stage next Thursday, and getting my stitches out on Tuesday.
