I did a bad thing... please help!



Recommended Posts

I had gastric sleeve surgery April 15 2019. As I write this it is April 20 (6days). I just made a big error by eating two crinkle fries ( well chewed) The first one was ok and the second was going down very very slow down my throat and I was drinking liquids to push it down. As of right now, my stomach is not in pain. My stomach feels fine. My main concern is that it feels that it is stuck further down my esophagus. I’m drinking tea and Water to help it go down and I’m very scared and nervous. I totally regret it and I definitely learned my lesson. Never again! Please can anyone help ! What should I do?

Nothing to do. Just let it go down. It may be that it has already gone down but your esophagus was a little irritated.

You'll be fine. It will either come back up or go down.

Yeah you learn after. that while you can control some things you're fatalistic about others. Sur it doesn't sparkle, glitter is over-rated in the first place, but you can And will still with a smooth steady flow. You are still functioning, , your pilot light is still lit, and you realize it was all due to plan, God's, not yours necessarily. But Baby it is still a pretty good life so smile😝 at it all!

If you get a pain in your sternum area that's normal. When I eat fast or a bit too much I get a pain in my sternum area. I have to walk it off and I don't consume anything (solids or liquids) until the pain subsides. It does after awhile of walking it off.

Thank you for all the post! I’m relieved. Afterward my stomach was growling and I had the runs after some warm Soup so I believe it came out. My esophagus and sternum feel a little sore and my stomach growls here and thee when I drink liquids but with no pain. Thanks a bunch!

We all learn by trial and error unless someone tells you in advance. I am thankful for the info and support I get on here. Although my course through May not be the same as someone else, there is still much info to be gl3an4d. And fe3l so good when Ms X or Mr Z had this, tells me,i won't die either!

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
