NYE 2019 surgery date twin?



Recommended Posts

Glad to hear that....💜

I’m pretty sad..I had the lapband removed this morning.
Surgeon said the gastric bypass surgery was not able to be done due to scar tissue...I’ll have to wait 3-6 months for that..🤨😢😢😢😢😢

Grateful for his decision....It sounds like that could of been too complicated and I want no complications obviously..keep us posted on your journey....🙏🏼❤️
Happy New Year!

Very, very bad night. Felt like someone was holding a propane torch right up against my lower left front rib. The nurse gave me liquid hydrocodone and it didn't phase the pain. So next he gave some morphine to me with no relief. Last 2 hrs later he gave me Dilotid and Regilan or something like that, wow worked like charm.

No, I'm not sleeping with the snoring beauty and her even louder snoring little piglet of a dog! I came out to the living room that is around 35 ft from the bed and still here both of them. I think the piglet has sleep apnea and needs a CPAP. Otherwise it's a very common theme around here. I'm going to turn on the radio and listen to some 70s music excluding disco ( sorry fans) and hopefully fall asleep watching the flames dance in the wood stove. Thank you for the concern. P.S. with how the beauty is rip roaring back there I would think the music can get pretty loud with no problems. Fleetwood Mac Rianna playing right now. NICE!

Okay, I'm lmaooooo literally at piglet needing a cpap. Check in with us when you feel up to it after surgery and you will be the sleeping King thanks to your meds!!! Enjoy your 70's grooves.

@loridee11 I hope your road to recovery continues to be very uneventful and full of sips and steps so you may go home. 😊

Steve, so sorry for your pain. I hope it has passed now.

Cutebutcrzy - congrats! I hope you are still feeling well.

LovingLV, I had my band out in August and my surgeon told me going in he would only do it in two surgeries. Even with the delay my bypass took an extra hour as he had to clean up some scar tissue so waiting is probably for the best.

brooksbrittanyanne: congrats! I hope you are feeling well a couple days after your surgery! Feel free to chime in here and share you story with us!

Overall my pain has been pretty minimal. I took a small dose of hydrocodone 2 time in the hospital, but the rest of the time I was OK with just Tylenol. I did try to walk every couple of hours.

Now that I am home I am definitely feeling the bloat and some related pain. I've got an ice pack on and took a hydocodone which isn't doing much. I'll walk around the house some more to see if that helps it move quicker.

My biggest challenge is I didn't sleep much in the hospital - just too much noise and movement. I'm hoping I'm able to sleep tonight.

I'm happy to be home but definitely feel more bloated/gas pain since I left the hospital. Sigh, isn't that always how things happen. I was pretty lucky with pain I took the liquid hydrocodone 3x in the hospital and for me it worked well. The norco pills they gave me from home don't seem to be helping as much (maybe my stomach isn't breaking them down enough) Now I'm chilling with an ice pack in my recliner trying to decide if I'm staying here for the night or if I'm going to try my bed. I'm super tired after only getting a few minutes sleep at a time off and on in the hospital.
Congrats to everyone on a great start to a new year. New Year = New Us!

Hi Friends, my surgery went well and I’m home and in a lot of pain. I had to come home with a drainage bag. It’s awful and luckily I have a good husband to help me because I can’t even look at it. Happy New Year.

Hey, I’m feeling well for the most part. I wake up feeling fine, but by like 2 or so I need a nap and some pain medication. What does concern me though is i know i am not getting my Protein or hydration goals, but i just honestly can’t shove ghat much in my mouth throughout the day!

It would be a lot easier though if everyone else in my house didn’t snore like they were giants! Trying to sleep is rough. This morning at 2 am i woke up to my boyfriend snoring so loud that even the tv on 30 couldn’t drown it out. An hour later the four and nine year old snuck into the bed, both snoring, and at some point our snoring chihuahua also snuck into the bed. At what point in the relationship is it too early to start sleeping in different beds?! Lol

Hope everyone is doing well this morning. Steve, hope your pain is much improved!

I'm doing pretty well today. I got some decent sleep and have been sipping fluids and had some greek yogurt for Breakfast. I needed a couple tylenol this am - I was a little worried since they sent me home with pills but so far so good.

Greek yogurt never tasted so good when liquid is your food option, I'm sure. So yummy 😊 or do you want me to hush already,lol. I'm glad you are posting updates, worried about Steve. Hydrate and rest , try to walk in the house if you can today and check back in when you are feeling up to it.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.

      Too much anxiety and stress:
      So lately thanks to COVID 19 (I don't have it though been trying to stay safe and healthy) I've been having severe anxiety and panic attacks lately. I've always had this problem but it's getting worse so as a result I've been having bad insomnia and getting sleep is hard for me right now. I wish it were easier but it's a work in progress AGAIN. I thought I got over this hump a while ago and was getting sleep but now my insomnia is back in full spring and I hate it! My grandmother is also moving on Tuesday and that is also stressing me out because I'll have no family nearby since everybody is in other states now thanks to California being too high. It makes me so sad man! But I am seeing her today on Monday for the last time before she leaves on Tuesday this week.
