So had my sleeve yesterday afternoon. I totally expect to have pain but is it normal for every tiny baby sip to hurt like hell once it hit? Even my pain meds hurt 😭

how long does this last?

Are you home already? If not, may I suggest that you advocate very strongly for different pain meds. Once your pain is well managed you may feel a lot happier during the recovery period that follows

❤CONGRATULATIONS❤

on a safe surgery btw

Thanks guys- doing a little better tonight. Currently negotiating my release lol

i got caught up in a shift change so I was almost 2 hours late on getting pain meds. And that pain is something real!!

as the day has gone on it’s been a pretty achey but not as much of sharp, excruciating pain of last night and this morning.

I started to feel “back to normal” on day 5. By then I was sore but not in major pain and only took my pain meds at night. Very cold drinks bothered me some so I stuck to slightly colder than room temp for the first few weeks. I think it’s all preference and what works for you. Take your time recovering. Congratulations!

I’m home now, and sooo glad to be in my own bed!! I am hoping some real rest and being able to manage my own medication will help a ton. As the day has gone on drinks are a little easier. Still have some pain but now I am pretty much certain the lower tummy stabbing is gas- never have I just wanted to fart so bad 😂😂😂

thank for the encouragement- I was really in the deep this morning. Ok I’m gonna go sleep now.

Update- after a rough week, 2trips to the er and a bunch of tests that said I was fine.... my surgeon advised me to try some Ibuprofen. He said that the muscles near my belly button were probably spasming because of some trauma during the surgery ( cameras and tools and such)
Anyway... I slept through the whole night last night and feel amazing today!!!!!

My Dr sent me home with muscle relaxers and they have been a life saver for sure.

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
