@Frustr8, Sleeve. I actually couldn’t really decide so I just let the surgeon decide. Honestly, I have such a busy work life that I feel like I haven’t really researched very much . Will update as I love seeing other people’s stories as well :) Im doing mine at Kaiser Permanente in Los Angeles.< /p>

The burping is bad! Is it from feeling your belly with air or is it whenever you drink something! My surgery was the 7th and I still have it. Went to Dr today and he said it takes time and to “sip slowly”. Trust me, I can’t sip any slower than I already am!

I know what you mean. I had my thyroid removed due to cancer in 2005 and for some reason I am more nervous this time that then. Maybe I am older and not necessarily wiser but just a bit more cowardly. It is the right move for me. So I am going through with it but I wish I could shake the nerves. Maybe part of it is this darn pre-surgery diet.

Don’t be scared ladies. I have my surgery on January 7 and I was so nervous before I almost made myself sick. I am now only 10 days postop and I can honestly tell you that it wasn’t nearly as big of a deal as I was making out to be in my head. I’m doing awesome, I have no problem drinking fluids, and honestly just feel really great. The first two days I was in a little bit of pain but only took Tylenol and that took care of it. I’ve already 31lbs since January 3 (the start of my preop diet). So I guess what I’m saying is don’t be nervous, it really ain’t no thing 🙂

Had my surgery yesterday... definitely not what I expected. It took eight tries to get a stable IV and I literally almost walked out right then and there. I was walking about three hours after surgery and walked about every hour. Haven’t really felt much gas except before I started walking but have quite a bit of pain in my abdomen where the stomach was removed. I swear I feel sooo hungry. I don’t have a desire to eat cause of the pain but I definitely feel like my stomach burns, almost like the feeling when you haven’t eaten anything in a while , but way worse. Hopefully it’ll go away soon :)

      Hi I'm Sam, currently 7 seven years out of VSG and looking into revision due to weight gain. 
      I'll be the first to say I lived life a little too hard and am looking for a second chance at a healthier life.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

        I’m 67 and had surgery in September.

      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?
