Had my sleeve on jan , 7 2019 felt pretty good but surgery took 7. 1/2 hours due to me having a acid reflux surgery in the past and I had developed another hernia and that was repaired! Was a little concerned about not going to the bathroom it seemed like I was full of food but I wasn’t getting rid of it but today things started moving and I feel better!
Oh I see

Yes they had to remove a lot of scar tissue from the acid reflux wrap! My stomach was up in my chest and when he pulled to down it fell apart so they had to remove the scar tissue and repair the hyena and then decided to do the sleeve instead of the rny

Water has been easy for me but I struggle with getting enough Protein in on only 1000 cal per day. I’m 90 days out and 40 down. I had vgs and I’m 68. Maybe a little older than most.

Gas is the worst. I bought gasX chewable tabs. I saw somewhere they were life savers. They were. I used at home. Not at hospital.
Oh yeah take saline nose spray and a good lip balm with you. It is super dry in the hospitals.

Did the hyena survive the surgery? 🙂

Sorry, I couldn't resist!

No it didn't, poor thing , it wasn't a laughing matter after all. I suspect we were really discussing a HIATAL hernia repair but then I could be wrong!

Yes, I'm sure you are right. I was just being sarcastic. 🙂

Yes it was a hiatal hernia, I guess I still have my fat fingers but only got a short time! Lol my phone has a mind of its own! But joking aside it was pretty scary to wake up and see how long I was under! Sugar shot to 300 and they had to give me insulin and my blood pressure was so high they gave me two shots for that! What was crazy was they did it with me standing and my feet hurt worse than the surgery!
