Post op sleeve nerve issues ?



Recommended Posts

I had the sleeve done 11/15/19, and I know when they cut through the stomach they also cut through nerves in the stomach....but I need to know if it's "normal" to not have feeling in your bladder? I can't tell when I need to pee because I don't get the feeling anymore so I literally have to just go after time has passed and guess when I need to go... Anyone else have this issue or had this ??!

I've never heard of that. I'd call the surgeon's office.

I had issues the few days after surgery, apparently the anaesthetic can affect your bladder. I didn't feel like I needed to go, and when I did, couldn't empty my bladder. So I needed a catheter, joy of joys. I still felt weird for a few weeks, it's all back to normal 7 weeks out though. Definitely a question to ask your surgeon.

Hiya doll. I had mine done 14 days ago 11/13 and I STILL feel the same way. It's pretty bad. I also stayed at hospital longer. My husband and family was very against this surgery so I don't have much support but what doesn't kill me makes me stronger, right? I get what the doctors call spasms and I'm still on ice chips and Protein Drinks. Girl... I've had 4 children and this surgery pain is 100% worst than childbirth IMO. I didn't realize how much pain comes with the surgery. My doctor told me I'll feel like **** for 2 months truthfully. Stay in touch and we'll get through this together. I need some kind of support. I wish there were physical support groups in my area but oddly there's not so here I am. My name is Sunshine & I live in Tempe, Arizona.. currently

Well I had gone to the Dr and they ran tests to make sure there was no internal post op infection and everything came back normal. So maybe it'll wear off ?

I go on Monday 12/2 for my 2 week follow up. I was checked for infections via urine and blood test and X-rays , all clear. So idk... Maybe my body is just taking longer to recover ? No clue. I don't have pain associated with it and I'm not dehydrated at all. So that's a plus. Happy Thanksgiving!

      I hate these Lovenox shots.  That is all! LOL
      Feeling like a pin cushion.
      I know they are needed and it's only 10 days worth but I really hate giving myself shots. It's one of the reasons I want to be healthy because diabetes runs in my family

      Yas, I am HOME! Traveling back home was interesting but I made it.
      For the first time in my flying life we had NO drink service due to the turbulence! It was crazy. I had to call the steward to bring me water. You CAN NOT let yourself get behind on drinking! That would be dangerous.

        yeahhhhhh we are only 3 months apart on the sleeve journey. I found it has been way easier to lose with the sleeve than it was with the band...... although i loved my band. Sleeve was the easiest SX i ever had too.....

        @bayougirlmrss I was told this is the fastest weight loss surgery, but I am not really looking for extremely fast. I want it to be healthy. This is our new tool and we can use it wisely for sure. Are you taking your biotin and vitamins?

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

        Hit 42degress last weekend but this week has been in the rather pleasant low 30s (relatively of course😜). Could still wear jeans but thank goodness for air conditioning. Worse is the drought. Everything is dying or dead. Very sad & depressing.

      4. ms.sss

        I feel ya.
