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.

Head games are typical - Just read this forum and you will see tons of people have it - enjoy the journey and focus on being happy and healthy, You worked and will work to hard to let a little head Fu#$ing mess this up for your!

      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.

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey
