Well surgery went well, gas pain is manageable. Getting excited about my future. Trying to fall asleep on 1st night, with a smile on my face is proving difficult. Just so very happy I made this commitment. Keep smiling and know you are worth it.

Well I am up early, going to the hospital in a few hours for my Gastric Bypass. Nervous but excited. Was told I might be in the hospital till Friday, will let y'all know how it goes. Keep smiling, let the adventure begin for a whole new life.
It really isn't that bad at all. What i will say is you may feel some nausea after you wake up and when you get to your room and a bit of pressure in your abdominal area. Try the over the counter stuff they give (I think it was GASX) and something else they give for nausea. Get up as fast as you can unless you are sick or something but try to go for a walk and continue to do so every hour. If you still pressure and nausea, ask the nurse to call your doctor and see if they can recommend something stronger for both. That was a lifesaver for me. Other than that I have been very happy with this whole process so far. I am out three weeks now. FOLLOW EVERYTHING THEY TELL YOU TO DO, I have. God Bless you on your new journey.
Well no nausea, and the gas pains started after doing exhalation exercises. So I was able to start walking around about 5 hours after surgery. Can’t wait till drain is pulled out, so I can dress in my clothes. My nervousness has now turned into excitement of obtaining my goals. Maybe why I am having trouble falling asleep. Good luck to all. Keep smiling you are worth the effort is my motto.
