October 2019 surgery peeps?



Recommended Posts

I am about 6-7 hours post op, so may still have some Meds in me, so take this for what it’s worth.

The day started with 6-8 inches of snow (I live in the Denver area) and had to check in at 530AM. Amazingly everyone on my surgical team was on time and very bright eyed and enthusiastic.

Operation started right on time at 730, work up in post op with some discomfort in my diaphragm area....and that’s it. Incision’s don’t hurt, and the diaphragm may may have been has, because that it slowly going away.

Pretty exhausted, dozed most of the afternoon but doing shockingly well. Hoping that’s not just the meds talking, but so far a very pleasant experience!

We've all had surgery now! How is everyone doing? I had surgery on 10/18 and head back to work tomorrow. I have been pleasantly surprised by how well everything has gone. This upcoming week at work is very busy so I"ll see what it is like to get back in the full swing of things. I work in an office causal environment and have been surprised that a lot of pre-surgery clothes are getting to a point where they look a little sloppy because they're very baggy. What strategies do you have to deal with wardrobe? I have leggings and ponte pants and some dresses but not enough to bridge the gap.

I had my VSG surgery on 10/10/19. I’m currently almost 4 weeks out this coming Thursday, November 7th. So far so good, on mushy foods

I had my sleeve on 10/28. Had more pain than expected and took today off work too, but today has been my best day. Getting a decent amount of Water and Protein in each day and down 14 lbs. I was stubborn about pain meds but taking them helped me heal. Been able to make #2 without any meds/supplements, but I don’t go every day. I’m itching to go back to work so you know I’m bored.

I had my surgery 10/24 and went back to work 10/31. My surgery was a bit more complicated than anticipated. I was a revision and they didn't think my band had slipped, but it had and it was very difficult for them to remove.

I have had some problems with my heart rate shooting really high just from walking a short distance. I feel like it's slowly trying to get better, so I'm just taking that one day at a time. I have another appointment on Wednesday to see if any answers can be found.

Other than that, everything has gone great and I'm essentially pain free minus where I had a drain after surgery. I did buy a decent bit of Protein Powder to have after surgery and now I only like one of the flavors.. I knew that would happen, but it's still a bit of a bummer. 🤣
