January 2019 Sleevers! Questions!!!



Recommended Posts

So its been a complete week since my surgery and I am feeling okay just had a couple questions and want to see if anyone else is going thru these symptoms....

1) I been drinking Protein,water,broth and it was pretty easy for me to drink and keep it down. i just don't really feel full so i don't know when to stop drinking...i usually just stop myself when i feel i had enough but maybe 20 mins after ill feel thirsty again. also i been feeling less satisfied with just liquid i been feeling hungry

2) i been having this numb/sleeping pain on my left leg and i feel it every time i lay down to sleep or sit down to rest. i went to ER to make sure it wasnt a blod clot they no that it might just be the way i was strapped up during surgery so yeah still feel it just dont know what it is!!!

3) last thing constipation sucks!!!!! any tips on how to avoid that? that's the biggest thing i been suffering from i would say!

thank you and let me know if you're also starting your journey this month or last month i want to connect with others to see how they are doing

Congrats on surgery! I had surgery on Tuesday and can't wait to be at the point you are where liquids are that easy. Right now I can't only do about 30 ounces. From what I'm told, once your tummy has healed some you don't feel much restriction on liquids, so I think that what you're experiencing is normal. You probably won't feel the restriction you're thinking of until you move on to foods.

I've read about others who have said that they have spots on their bodies that feel numb now and they received the same explanation that you did about how you were strapped to the bed.

For constipation, my doctor recommends a dulcolax suppository and 2 tbs of milk of magnesia.

I had my surgery on Wednesday. Dealing with a ton of emotions. Good thing that you went to the ER. I have a spot that hurts as well. Talked to the doctor and said it sounds like some position I was in during surgery or something I pulled while getting up.

Have you tried Colase for the constipatio ?? L

In regard to the liquids, I am supposed to do 32 oz of this milk that has 13g if Protein per serving and 32 oz of other liquids. I am happy to be having the protein now. I wonder if you did the milk with the protein you would feel more full. It is called Fairlife. I was told to get the skim. It is lactose free. Sold at Target.

Stay strong!
