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!

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.
