Does the drain irritate when wearing pants? Maybe a silly question, but does it hurt bending over putting pants on post op? I was thinking about getting maxi dresses for after but idk what I’d do with the drain ....

I didn't have a drain. Just 5 medium sized bandaids. The incisions themselves were sealed with surgical glue. I had no problems. My surgery was in the summer, I was able to wear a loose sundress. I had no problems with my underwear.

Ugggh lucky. My surgeon makes everyone have a drain for the first week post op . I was really hoping to wear no pants ... maybe cut a small hole on the side of the dress for the drain to fit 🤷‍♀️

      Currently waiting on a surgery date. Hope to hear soon. I have been fighting for the sleeve surgery for 10 years. I am so ready!

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)
