That's great! I was a little nervous the day of surgery, but all of the nurses, doctors, and the anesthesiologist I talked to before surgery were so great that they put me at ease. Your day will be here before you know it!

Ladies, make sure to wear a sports bra post-op! I wore one all yesterday and took it off before bed and never put it back on. The lack of support was adding pressure to core, making me more sore throughout today. I put it back on a few minutes ago and already feel much better.

I’m January 10th! I was hoping to get mine done over our winter break but it didn’t work out. But I’m happy that I at least got a date!
I had my surgery yesterday. Got home earlier this afternoon. Im up moving and feel pretty good overall.

I did. I wore it for the first day or two but then found it hurt me more than helped :-)

I am not sure I will be able to wear one because my surgeon is sending me home with a ON Q bulb. He said it will come out my top incision.

Yeah! I had one shake—not going to be able to meet the goal of three, but it's progress!

Had my surgery on Monday, when I came to didn’t know what I had on right away but found the stomach binder hurt but I managed to keep it on for most of my stay to help keep swelling down. Did find more comfort when I did take it off middle Tuesday night

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.
