Retraining Brain and Signals!



Recommended Posts

Im 5 days post surgery and so far healing ok. Just discomfort across top wound and slight pain in shoulder. The thing im struggling with the most is interpreting the "sensations" in my stomach - i have slight pain in my stomach and my brain is going "you've got hunger pains, your hungry eats some toast!" ....so i have a drink of 125ml across 30mins and i end up burping (my dieticians notes say to increase Fluid intake to 125ml in one sitting at this stage...but whats one sitting in time???) ..burping : which is exactly what i used to do if i overate pre surgery. Its such a mind game of rediscovering body signals!!!

Im so worried ill stretch the sleeve!

I’m 4 days out and pretty much burp after every sip. Plus the noises, My God, the noises!

I am sore at incision sites. Other than that, I’m doing quite well.

I hope u continue to do well, and I look for to hearing from u!

All the best,
