I had surgery yesterday. It’s been really tough. NO Water, no ice chips, nothing in my mouth because I guess the doctor wants to do a test for leakage first. I’m in pain and have nausea too. Praying that today gets better.

One week post op. Note: milk of magnesia WORKS! Feeling better than normal today so I’m trying yoga again. I haven’t made it too far in a class since the reflux so I’m looking forward to it!

Recovery is definitely tougher than I was expecting but then I did just technically have 3 surgeries in 1.

My pain most of the time is zero

My nausea is zero

But I'm struggling with feeling weak and light headed. I am not in the least bit hungry. I'm eating when I'm supposed to and it doesn't hurt.Sitting out of bed, even for a short while really takes it out of me. Hopefully another week will see a huge improvement.

It does get so much better. I am a little over 2 weeks out and let me tell you, there is a major difference. I can almost drink normally (no long chugs) and just started on soft foods and can tolerate everything. I was miserable the first week. Hang in there

My new stomach is three days old. I spent one night in the hospital and did great. Walked and walked a lot. Warm Water with lemon has really soothed my tummy. Bariatric nurse said it is really good for our new tummies.

Sitting in my hospital room getting ready for surgery. I am having my surgery in Malaysia as I have been residing in China for the past three years (no insurance) and this was a cost effective way to do it. The surgeon that is doing my surgery comes highly recommended by Australians and the Brits who travel here frequently for health procedures. My surgery was initially scheduled for 6pm has been pushed back to 7pm. Makes me a little nervous but I have a good support system here with me. Looking forward to getting past the next few days!

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
