Wow I’m glad to hear you’re not having a lot of pain. I have surgery May 20 and I’m scared to death it’s going to be painful. My doctor said because of the opioid crisis they can’t prescribe the usual pain medication. I’ve definitely been worried about this.

Since Im self pay they plan on letting me go home same day as surgery unless there’s a problem.

I hope things continue to go smoothly for you. I’ll look for updates.

I'm on May 23rd & I'm really worried about the gas pain. I feel like I can handle the pain from the incisions, but all the gas buildup in your chest sounds awful.

The pain is temporary and short lived! Just think about that new lease on life

For anyone that has had surgery!! My sleeve surgery is May 30th, how often did you walk at the hospital and when you got home?

I walked 3 times on surgery day, the next day I walked 4 times and was discharged on that day. I walked 20 minutes this morning on the treadmill at home.. Surgery was 5/13/2019 hope this helps

The pain is temporary - but don't discount it! I was not mentally prepared for the incision pain. I walked all my gas out before leaving the hospital but that incision pain is no joke! You use your core for everything and they just sliced through all the layers of it and yanked out your stomach!

Just be prepared. I was fortunate enough to get 10 days of liquid hydrocodone. After that adult liquid Tylenol worked well.

      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

        welcome welcome - 23 lbs pre/post op is great. you are doing fine. keep up the good work. kathy

      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.
