Surgery went great on Monday



Recommended Posts

Abdomen feels crampy, pain has shared today. Felt pretty nauseated day 2.

My oxygen levels are a concern, so I'm being sent home today with some oxygen tanks for my cpap and for rest time.

Tonight I'll sleep completely flat in bed to see what that's going to be like. Might need to strategize how to effectively roll out of bed.

I'm so very happy for the awesome people here who have shared their experiences over the years.

I'm excited to get back home today!

Congratulations! So excited for you.

When rolling out of bed or standing up from the couch, make sure you use the furnitures available for you for support, at least for the next 2 weeks. Put your arms on the end table or elbow rest etc to cause less pain in your belly.

sip. sip. sip.... little sips...

Good Luck. You got this!

Welcome to the journey and I used a Cane to prop my overweight ass out of bed and chairs for the first few weeks - Did it once without it and it hurt - Still have the cane anyone need it

Fantastic!!

Perhaps don't lay completely flat yet if your 02 levels aren't fantastic, they will get better as the fat melts away. Just try to let your body have the best recovery it can, so propped up on some pillows, to begin with, is probs a good idea.

Well done for being a star patient :D

Way to go, surgery sibling! I was also a bit nauseous day 2. Got the foamies, I think either because I drank too much or didn't drink enough. I'm trying to be slow and steady with it, and today is much better.

@ColoradoCanuck I am considering Joshua Long as well. Would love to know your thoughts on his care along with his office staff. Really anything you have to say about this care center would be great to know. Happy healing! Congrats!

I sent a full recount via private message. Long and short of it, pin intended, I can't say enough good things about him. Very patient, very generous with his time, very calm demeanor, answers questions in easy to understand tends but also got into the how's and why's when I told him I was an engineer who wanted to know more about how things work.

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
