Are you taking your pain meds scheduled? Don't chase pain. What that means as it was explained to me is once you feel pain it is too late to catch up by taking a pain pill or liquid or whatever your doctor gives you. If the prescription says every four hours, then do that. You can wean yourself off them after a few more days.

Danny, are you passing and stool or rectal gas now? what other surgeries or injuries have you had in the past? How does this pain compare to them? If this is the only surgery you've ever had, then this is the worst pain of your life. Understood. But compared to knee replacements, open abdominal surgeries, thoracic surgery, or severe fractures, laproscopic surgery is pretty mild. After 5 days, the surgical gas pain should be resolved. There will be incisional pain, especially when trying to get out of bed or doing twisting type movements. There will be deeper pain in specific spots with the same kind of movements. That is all normal. Your pain meds should be helping. As stated before, take the pain meds BEFORE the pain reaches a high point. Use a firm small pillow to brace your belly when you stand, cough, get out of bed or a chair, or even walk. And walk you must. Walk, walk, walk. Sip your fluids. That's all you have to do right now. Each day should be getting a little better by this point.

The pain that I had after bypass was rough. It does get better so hang in there! Be sure to let your surgical team know about your pain just in case there is an issue though.

also be sure to walk when possible and get as much Fluid in as you are able. It really will help.

A few weeks from now you won't be in pain and you'll step on that scale and be amazed at how far you've come in just a short time. Hang in there. Good luck on your weight loss journey.

^^ This. Even if its just around your kitchen, get up and do it every hour, without fail. It may hurt and you may not want to, but do it anyway.

You should be seeing your doc soon for a follow-up, yes? Make sure to bring it up with them. ❤️

      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.
