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! 🤗🤗

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
