Had surgery on 23, been just on liquid diet,yet feel like I am doing something wrong, even though Iam following all the instructions...I am in a lot of pain on my Right side is excruciating,thinking I am doing wrong.... feeling down in the ropes today

That's where your stomach is so it makes sense that that's the side that hurts the most. My pain decreased significantly after the first few days and now at 2.5 weeks out I have virtually no pain; just a little soreness every now and again. Hope you feel better soon.

Had surgery on 1/22, not feeling the greatest, barely getting my fluids in, heartburn or gas is the worst...i was able to eat a 3rd of 4ounce low fat cottage cheese, had to add Protein to my Water can barely get 24 ounces in a day. But i do feel a bit better than the day before. Not used to sleeping on my back so its hard. Trying to avoid taking the pain killers. I know its supposed to get better soon just hoping sooner than later

Treza make sure you do everything your surgeon and team tells you. And take one day at a time you will do well. I had surgery on 1/15 and I have no regrets I am doing well and healing well. The first couple of days were rough because my allergies flared up and I was sneezing and coughing I thought I was going to die. But I am doing so much better!

Anyone experience pounding headaches 5 days post op? I went to the urgent care and thank god no high blood pressure, seems I’m might be dehydrated even though I drink my Gatorade but haven’t been drinking Water it’s so much liquids and my stomach can only take so much 😩 so today I’m drinking water with my flavor added to see and so far 30 oz still trying apart from my Gatorade, broth and Jello.

I had surgery on 01/24, late in the day so that night was very bad, a lot of pain. It has been getting better each day. I do not feel hunger at all, I am only able to drink 1 oz of liquid at a time otherwise my sternum feels like it is getting kicked. My doctor has already introduced me to soft foods-yogurt-and it was the same thing, one oz otherwise there is pain. Starting to get around but after a bit, I do get tired so I take a break. I had my surgery in Kuala Lumpur and had nothing but the best experience, from the surgeon, nursing staff, anesthesiologist, to the dietitian, etc... Going to take it one day at a time. I have not weighed myself, will wait for the follow up appt. tomorrow.

@Mjrteach: I got sleeved on 1/18 and am still wearing the abdominal compression thing they gave me. Not as much but I do feel that it helps me with support.

Since my RnY on the 23rd, my sense of smell is extremely acute!! Nothing smells good! I’m getting my Water in, but I’m really turned off by broth big time. Also, could anyone please suggest a pleasant tasting Bariatric multi Vitamin? The one I use is overwhelming. I know I haven’t posted too much positive, but I’m pretty miserable right now. As soon as I start walking a little bit, I start getting light headed and nauseous.

      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.
