Laying in hospital now



Recommended Posts

I had surgery yesterday. Less than 24 hours ago. Questioning my decision. Drinking is so hard. What I would give to feel better than this?!?! Someone please tell me that it will get better soon! How long until you start feeling like being out of bed!

Normal to question what have I done. Walk, walk, walk. Sip, sip, sip. Repeat. Sooner you get up a move the better you will feel. Had me up walking same day.

It will get better soon! A lot of the discomfort is probably from the anesthesia and pain medication. I spent two nights in the hospital and felt pretty badly for about a week after surgery and then I felt much better! After two weeks I was back at my office, feeling OK. A few weeks out and you probably won't even remember how badly you felt, you'll be watching pounds drop off.

Hang in there. The first few days suck. It will get better. Slow sips, keep your body moving. Normal-everything you’re feeling. We’re all here for you. Every day will get a little better and before you know it you’ll look back and smile at your new life!

Day #1 post-op is the worst but Day #2 you'll feel like a brand new person. Get up and walk if you can, it really helps.

A lot of people have unusual hormonal responses to the surgery and some people suffer from depression afterwards. If you don't feel better in a fews weeks, you might want to talk to a therapist. But feeling cruddy right now is totally normal.

I haven't had my sleeve surgery yet, but I am thinking of Cesarean childbirth. I can't imagine pain worse than that. I couldn't get out if bed on my own for over a week. Is the sleeve worse than childbirth?

I did not have any pain at all after being sleeved. Just discomfort. Walking helped a lot with that. In one week I was ok.

More discomfort than pain. Walking and moving is Key to releasing the gas.

Oh my goodness no. I have had two c-sections. They were worse than this.
