So, what is everyone taking to the hospital? I have my phone charger, a robe, change of clothes and the regular bathroom stuff. Can anyone think of anything else? OH and the copies for cardiac clearance LOL:)
Earphones? Chapstick is a biggie, I'm so dry mouthed it's unreal! Maybe some hand cream and a power bank for your phone if u have one. I also brought grippy slippers and my slip on sandals. Didn't end up using the grippy slippers as it's warm in here. I also brought a pillow from home for comfort. A coloring book and some crochet stuff which I haven't used yet I'm too tired and sore so I just play games and listen to music on my phone.

My RNY went well, little to no complicaton they said. I was horribly groggy and sore when I came to but they have been on top of pain meds. At this point it's just very tender and my back hurts which is typical for me. Drifting in and out of sleep every 30 minutes or so. Again, typical for me lol. Drinking Water 15ml every 15-30 minutes. I've been burping a bit but no flatulence yet! Might be going home later this evening if the day goes well.

Just taken my Pico-prep. A little worried how gruesome it may be.
I check in tomorrow morning 10.30am at hospital.

Yikes. I need to pack my bag this evening too.

I hope everyone is feeling well and any discomfort or pain passes ASAP.

I brought a small sling bag of items, but the only things I used were chapstick, phone, and phone charger. I would have done some reading, but my brother was there to keep me company...or I was sleeping. Lol. The nurse seemed impressed with my light packing.

My big post op report.

Today I am 4 days post op revision from VSG to Mini Gastric Bypass.
Today I only feel discomfort and no pain at all. In fact, I haven't touched any of the pain medicine I was sent home with. Although, I do have a high tolerance for pain. The biggest issue I had with discomfort was I had a drain paced and it made it nearly impossible for me to get comfortable. I have 3 incisions and one drain "open wound" that should close on it's on. My stomach has bruised pretty bad but all in all it doesn't look so bad. The hardest part of the whole surgery was coming out of anesthesia honestly. I felt perfectly fine after. We even toured Tijuana 2 days post op and were able to walk around the beach and shops with no issues.
As far as hunger is concerned...I haven't felt hungry since my surgery at all. It's a very weird thing to me to not feel hungry because before I was always hungry. Well, Head hungry anyway. The thing about being coder after surgery has been absolutely true for me! I have been freezing all day. It's 75 degrees right now (830 pm where I am) and all I want it to bundle up in my husbands thermal PJ's and put a heated blanket on. As they have stated above...BRING CHAPSTICK. That's the only thing I didn't bring that I wish I would have.
I have opted to go back to work tomorrow because I have a job where I feel I will have no issues at all. We have filtered Water there, a way to heat up broth and I have a mini fridge in my office so thats just about all I need. I do need to remind myself to keep hydrated!
Awesome!!!!

I have a bruised tummy as well.
Also, in another thread, someone mentioned setting a timer for every 15 minutes as a reminder to sip 1oz of water. As annoying as it sounds, it's saving me right now.

Yes, I downloaded an app for my phone to time me since my last drink. It's super helpful especially being so thirsty I just want to keep drinking or drink more often lol.

I am officially on the losers bench!!!! Not feeling to bad, but they gave me quite a few pain meds. 😬. Hope everyone else is doing well so far.

Congratulations and welcome :-) If things go accordingly, you should be able to ditch the pain meds asap.

      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".
