I knew that there was a possibility that I would have my gall bladder removed at the same time of my sleeve surgery but I got an unexpected curve ball. I also had a Hiatal Hernia that did not show up during my pre op testing. So I had three procedures done altogether. I am thankful though. Was in a lot of pain when I woke up but thank God for pain killers. I am home now and I have no more nausea like before my surgery. I am still having mild heartburn early in the morning time but I am guessing that is still gas from the surgery. Trying to walk as much as possible in circles to heal quicker and get rid of this gas buildup, The only pain I actually start having yesterday was pain generating across the top of my stomach. Called the nurse and she said it could be scar tissue from me trying to heal, don't really know. Only had to take my liquid Hydrocodone once today. Have already lost ten pounds. For some reason I got sort of depressed today, I do not know why, Is this normal?

I’m one week today too (rny) and also had my gallbladder out. It sounds like you are doing great! I’ve still got some pain where my incisions are and a little gas but it’s much improved. I’m only taking my pain meds at night now. Stomach is a bit touchy at times but most things I’m tolerating.

Yeah, first couple of nights I could barely get out of the bed because of the incisions. Hopefully the pain that I feel crossing the top of my stomach is just gas. Will see my surgeon tomorrow. Good luck to you. Maybe after a couple of weeks, we will be on top of the world.

Totally normal to suffer depression in the early post op period. Estrogen is released with rapid weight loss. It is hormonal.

Hang in there. It does get better.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

      @DaisyChainOz, @Arabesque ... am totally thinking of both of you this very moment as I watch the final set of the Millman-Federer match at the AO... I am riveted and literally screaming at the TV...

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Has anyone had a gastric sleeve revision?

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
