I went in at 730 yesterday morning for my sleeve. I'm only getting about 1 hour sleep at a time. Very, very sore. And I'm not belching much when I walk. Not passing gas at all. Nurse says little belching is normal. I just remember my wife letting some loud ones out after hers. Anyone else experience this?

I think my belching in the hospital was minimal, but the more I walked the more I released

I have been walking as much as I can stand to. Really depends on the pain. And every time I do, I belch. But just little burps here and there.

Belching was minimal for me too. And not to be nasty, but i was having serious gas pains 24 hours post op and that next night i must have farted a good 20 times. The next morning felt like a new man, all i felt was a little abdominal pain like i did a ab work out. It will pass my man. And its worth every minute. Just get through these next couple weeks. You got this,

I think I belched for the first time just before I was discharged, after I was allowed sips of Water. I think I passed gas more than I belched in the first few days. I was just glad it was coming out somewhere! Walking definitely helps with the soreness, pressure and gas pain.

Congratulations on a successful procedure!

So now my new problem. I need to pass gas. My stomach is rumbling and earlier I was able to squeeze out a small one. But it hurts to push. Any suggestions? Belching is fine. This is all lower gut.

Much better. It just took a little effort. Never did I think I'd describe a fart as a great feeling.

      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.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      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".
