Walk, walk and walk to help with gas. I don’t k ow how mobile you are but walk as much as you can. They had me walking that afternoon, the next day I must have walked for over an hour at one point, I made it a game. Every time I passed my room I’d take a sip of Water. Made it easier.

i can’t say it enough walk. When you get home. Do the same. Get up every 10 minutes and talk a walk around the house, keep doing that and I promise you won’t have gas. It worked for me,

Hi everyone,

My VSG was exactly 2 weeks ago. I was up and walking that night, and did a lot of walking through the night (only thing that really helped the gas pain).

I was discharged the next afternoon, and stopped pain meds on post-op day 2. Following surgeon and nutritionist plans, I transitioned to non-liquid Protein a few days ago. Can’t eat more than 1-2 oz of food at a time.

Hope everyone is doing great!

My surgery is on July 30. I had the lap band 9 years ago so I'm familiar with what to expect, but this will be far invasive. I am excited, scared, but will take this one day at a time, then come surgery I have faith and confidence in my doctor. He did the band, band removal, so we have history.

That's great @Sandra Nuelken, I'm glad you have history and faith & confidence in your doctor. Wishing you the best!

I had surgery 6/5 and still haven't lost 10lbs! I am losing inches. I just wondered if anyone had anything to say or any suggestions to give. I am getting my Protein and Water in with no problem. Plus I am walking 10k steps a day.

He said it was normal! Now I am up to 12 lbs lost and today makes 2 months. I really don't feel that it's normal. I feel better and I am happy about inches lost, I just think I should have lost more weight. I am 56 so I thought it might be my age.

If your surgeon isn't worried and you are following his/her instructions, I wouldn't worry. Let the tool do its work and walk, walk, walk! Good luck to you!

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
