Yes! For the first 2-3 weeks my feet and my whole body was freezing. It’s been almost a month and I have resumed a normal response to the temperature. Sounds like a natural response.

My 3rd day post-op was my worst! It does get better. I wonder if the bloody nose was a coincidence? That does not seem like it would be related to the surgery.

I had the same experience as Lisa. Day 3 was physically the worst, and then it started to get better. A few emotional days afterwards, but pretty much back to “normal” now (2.5 weeks post op). I went back to work after 2 weeks and it’s been okay. I find that I get really tired after lunch, but just have to power through it. Hang in there!

@smund - so sorry to hear about your struggles. Things will get better. I hope they can repair your teeth easily. I didn’t even know it was a possibility until the surgeon told me about 20 minutes before surgery.

Day 3 post-op. Pain is mostly gone. Biggest pain is spitting up stuff and blowing a bloody nose (probably from Heparin). Feels like my throat constantly has something in it. Going through tissues like crazy. Still afraid to drink too much and get sick, but I'm doing pretty well actually. Incisions hurt when I move too much, but it's not bad. Still haven't gone to the bathroom, but will try again.

I suffered from terrible nausea and throwing up on Wednesday night to the point where they wanted me to come back in. But I refused. I just wanted my bed. Glad I made the right decision. Gotta keep pushing through all of this.

I'm sorry that you are having such a difficult time. Just keep thinking: 'it will get better'....

After getting two units of red blood cells on 2/27, I was finally able to join the sleeved club on 2/28. So far I haven’t had any vomiting, only nausea. The gas isn’t too bad either. I’m doing a lot of walking and my spirometer breathing exercises.

So last night was pretty miserable. 3rd day post op but first night home. Could not sleep in my bed. So painful. I'm usually a stomach sleeper but kept trying to alternate between back and side. Didnt get any discharge info on sleep. Might have to try sleeping in a recliner.

My snoring was so bad my wife left and slept on the couch. Any tips to sleep better?

Had my surgery yesterday around 10:00 am. So glad it’s over. Everything seemed to go well I just can’t lay down or pass any gas so the pain is rough. Nurses don’t give anything because they say gas meds don’t work because this gas is within the cavity of the body. I just hope this passes soon. Anyone have a cure?

Walking and have someone strongly pat your back.

Some people have used a wedge pillow and say that helps. After a week or so you don't have the pain in the incisions at all.
