Post op two days. So much pain and discomfort.



Recommended Posts

Hey everyone I had my gastric bypass surgery Tuesday December 18th. I survived and everything went well woot woot! I got discharged today and I am finally home. They had me on morphine at the hospital via pca pump. Then they eventually started giving me percocets. I am not going to lie when the effects of the meds wear off I am miserable and I only have 2 days worth of hydrocodone. How did you guys deal with the pain afterwards? I am not looking forward to my pain medication running out 😣😣

Dang they gave me no pain meds in the hospital. lol! When I got home the only real pain I had was severe muscle soreness. I took some Tylenols a few times. and just rested.

My pain medicine made me so sick I could not take it.

In two or three days though, you may be surprised how much better you will be feeling. You may be uncomfortable but the worst of the pain is usually gone.

Make sure you are walking everyday. Get up in the morning. Get dressed. Walk a few times a day. Rest when needed. You will do fine!

I had my RNY on Monday and they told me to take 3000 mg of Acetaminophen per day and it works great. They gave me some Oxycodone too and that just makes me feel loopy.

I'm with ya! I was given tylenol 3 and zofran for nausea. The worst of my pain is gas pain, so I'm hoping it's better soon. Both of my family members who have had the sleeve said day 3 was the toughest. I hope you feel better soon!

Thank you so much. Yes today and tomorrow I believe the pain will continue. I just really hope it does not take any longer then that. I was given Zofran as well along with morphine day 1 and 2 and percocet on day three. But I am still in so much pain once it wears off. And this is under the circumstances of being sent home with hydrocodone for every 6 hours 😣😣

Hi, It went well. It was a strange experience to say the least. I was totally in control until I met the anesthesiologist :blink:. It seemed like after she started talking to me, it was no time and I was waking up in recovery. It took awhile to figure out what was going on. It seemed like a lot of people wanted to start giving me instructions right away. LOL First major surgery for me. I hope everything went well for you.

I had a very similiar experience. I just remember a lot of people going in and out asking me questions and viewing my medical history over and over. Then I went into the operating room with one of those gowns with the back open. Layed on the surgery table with the mask put on my face then boom! Next thing I know I woke up in recovery in severe pain haha. This was my first surgery ever as well. I have never even been hospitalized for anything. I just want these next few days to go by as quickly as possible so I can feel "normal" again ☺

Hi! I am feeling much better 1 week post op. I would say the pain was pretty much bareable 4 days later. I was on morphine the first day and a half then they gave me percocets. My nurse also before hand had called in Hydrocodone for me even before the surgery. Luckily 1 week later Im feeling much more self sufficient. If I get the aches here and there I take the liquid tylenol like you do.I am happy you made it through the surgery and all is well. I just cant wait for these pounds to keep dropping off woooo! 🤗🤗

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
