I have a desk job as well. I’m scheduled for the 21st and I put in for 2 weeks off. I asked my friend who had the sleeve done a couple years ago and he said 2 weeks should be fine for a desk job.

Congratulation! I would Error on the side of caution And indicate 3 weeks. That way if all is well, you can go back early but if there are complications, you have taken a proactive approach. Good luck!

I’m feeling the same feelings when I drink. Taking pill sucks. I feel the getting stuck. And the dry mouth part really sucks. I’ve been having a lot of dry heaving and that’s very painful. I’ve been walking a lot and hopefully get to go home today.

Yes. Crunch the pill before taking. Good luck.

One week after surgery! This has been one LOOONG week. It seems much longer ago I was checking into the hospital. But I am pain-free, and so much stronger than I expected to be! One day at a time.

I am six days into the pre-op diet, I'm off of coffee, I'm following all of the rules. Why do I feel like garbage? I can't pay attention to anything and I feel dizzy 90% of the time.

My nutritionist and surgeon's nurse are both out of the office this week. I called to ask about Immodium and came up empty. (Yeah, I see what I did there)

Blah. I just want to get to the other side.

So far so good, sometimes (like now) I will have pain on my front right side, I have gotten tired out of the blue a few times, and getting up too fast I have become dizzy.

all and all I’m excited about the future now. I’ve been walking a few times a day seem to help but my wife keeps saying to take it a bit easy still

Hi everyone. I’ve been lurking on this forum for a couple of months and figured better late than never to actually join and post. I’m getting sleeved tomorrow!
Im so tired right now after the week of liquid diet but can’t go to sleep until I chug 2 bottles of “ensure pre surgery” at midnight. [emoji37]
thanks to all the February people that have posted. Makes me feel so much less alone!
Good Luck! Keep us updated!!

Going off coffee could be part of it...or just the pre-op diet. Good luck!

Ok so I bought a broth and I hate it! So I had my honey take me to Panera bread and they let me try their Soup broth. I love them. Yay something I can eat! Also.... for ice chips go to your local Sonic because they sell a 10lbs bag for $3.25 and omg it’s the best!!!!

I’m 3 days post op today and it was kind of a mixed bag. Overall less pain but I wasn’t really able to get the clear Protein Drinks down at all. I tried to focus and just staying hydrated. I’ve discovered that’s it’s easier for me to consume warm liquids over cold or even room temp ones. Seriously, cold Water or propel/gateroade feels awful going down for some reason. broth goes down so easy though! I also made a tea concoction...warm water with Yogi bedtime tea, juice from half a lemon, packet of Splenda and a pinch of Kosher salt. Sounds ridiculous even to me but it actually was good and went down pretty easy.

Tomorrow I’m allowed full liquids so hopefully I can take in some Protein but I can’t even imagine that right now. Lol, it’s so bizarre to even think that I’m nervous/excited for a small sip of Premier Protein

As I’m typing this, I feel a bit hungry for the first time...is that possible???
