Hi. If anyone is curious I had my surgery Tuesday. As of today I’m doing well. No need for pain meds. My stomach feels still so bloated though. Like I’m pregnant! No big issues with my liquids just not that interested. Its like a job to fit everything in. Passing gas is a challenge but walking around is helpful. Any questions feel free to message me. Im more than happy to share any of it if will help! Good luck to those coming up!

Hi @Thea7777! How are you feeling? How bad was the pain in the immediate recovery at the hospital?

Hi! I’m new here. My surgery is tomorrow, a revision from a 10 year old band to the sleeve. I have to be there at 5:45am. Yikes! I haven’t been nervous but am starting to get really nervous now. I appreciate all of you sharing your stories! It’s helping to calm me down.

Good luck!!!! You will do amazing!! I had the band to sleeve revision as well and it has been the best thing I've ever done other than having my kids and marrying my husband [emoji38][emoji38]
Wishing you a safe surgery and speedy recovery!![emoji253][emoji253]

Thank you so much, DeeDee! I didn’t think I’d be so nervous, especially since it’s not my first surgery. I’m so glad to hear you had the same surgery and it went so well. I want to be healthy for myself, and for my husband and kids, too. Thanks so much for your response!! If you don’t mind my asking, did the port removal incision hurt a lot? My surgeon said it would likely be the most painful aspect.

I honestly didn't feel any different compared to the other incision sites. It was glued and it was not particularly painful. A few pinch here and there but nothing intolerable honestly!!

Hi All,

Revision from band to bypass was this past Friday 9/13. I was in the hospital until Sunday mid morning. Overall I feel ok. Main issue has been pain and bloating at the top of my stomach. Like right below my sternum. I’ve never really pushed out there much except when I was pregnant and right now I’m looking about 8 months along. Lol🤣😂 Fortunately my incisions haven’t hurt much and liquids are going down very well with no nausea or tummy trouble. Wednesday’s are my usual weigh on days, but given how bloated I am, I’m going to wait a few more days, just so I can try and get a somewhat close to actual starting weight.
Hope everyone is doing well!!

      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".
