When does it stop!



Recommended Posts

Hi guys! So I had surgery Monday, on day 4 of post op. When does the soreness start getting better. I found that today and yesterday I am SUPER sore on my big incision. When will I start feeling human again? I’m not on pin meds, only Tylenol.

Everyone is different. I was back to myself after 2 weeks. But once I started eating normally I would have pain on my upper incision near my stomach again. It will get better. Take it Day by day, week by week you will feel the difference. And it will all be worth it in the end.

Questions: Why no pain meds?

My doctor didn’t prescribe pain medicine. Just Tylenol which honestly I’m fine with because pain meds make me super nauseous anyway.

Honestly, eveneryone is different, you may take longer to get past the pain than others. Get well soon 🎈

No pain meds from my doctor also. Which I'm glad. But for me it was about a week that I was feeling back to normal. And never hungry. LOL

I had surgery on Tuesday and the soreness is the worst! Hopefully it'll get better for us soon! I have percocet, but honestly, I'm not sure how much it's helping—seems like it just makes me sleepy.

It really is the worst. How are you doing on fluids? Are you able to get down the Protein Shakes and get 64oz of Fluid in already? I’m struggling to get it all down.

Oh definitely not. I tried to have a Protein Shake today, but it was taking me so long that I switched back to Water. I'd rather go without Protein than get dehydrated. So far today I've only got in 25 ounces.

I'm a week post op and mostly my stomach aches when I stand up - and I think it's just b/c my belly is pulling. Otherwise they did give me a LOT of oxycotin. I didn't take any either. I have NO idea what I'm going to do with this stuff..LOL. My incisions do itch tho'. A lot. Which I guess means they are healing.

      This is completely unreal but two days in a row now I have seen less than 200 pounds on the scale for the first time in over 15 years. I am a pound away from my first goal of 199 at 13.5 months post op. Time to set a new goal for the New Year!

      hello all i have a question i have cigna and i called them personally to ask if they cover the weight loss surgery and they told me off the bat that they do not cover weight loss surgery. my question is should i have my dr submit something in writing?

        Yes, continue to fight this with Cigna! Ask what process they require for a possible review of your case? Ask your surgeon and his team to help you clarify and challenge.

        Since weight loss surgery has gained more popularity and momentum - Cigna from our experience is playing games with their patients who wish to get healthier. It is egregious that Cigna would rather pay for someone's weight related heart attack, hernia, diabetes, sleep apnea and/or other costly conditions then being pro-active! As for ourselves, we tired of jumping thru they're hoops putting off my surgery until April or May 2019 with continued ridiculous, redundant requests. Yet, we know of a colleague where Cigna was cooperative and approved without a hitch.

        Because I needed weight relief off my injured left knee when exercise and dieting were no longer effective... We made the decision to self pay and get on the road to self restoration sooner than later. I wanted to start my new year with a hope and future. For us, the Cigna mill was becoming just to stressful. And, we hold a premium policy with a reputable international corporation. They refuse to pay for vitamin regime now, too.

        Your Cigna story may be better. Not to discourage you - you may or may not have a fight. It is your health and worth fighting for. Do let me know what transpires, will you? Many best wishes for a very positive outcome.

      2. GradyCat

        I don't know anything specifically about Cigna, but maybe they were thinking about the cosmetic kind. Maybe you should have said "bariatric surgery" or asked specifically about their benefits for medically necessary bariatric surgery? I got lucky and my insurance had very good coverage and benefits for WLS and I was approved on the first request. Out of $50,000 billed for the surgery I only had to pay $600.00.
