Definitely call your doctor you may have developed Fluid in your lungs

Thanks very much, I told my Dr yesterday 2/19 and he said it is probably Fluid it my stomach and that is normal. I will let him know your suggestion.

Sounds like gastroesophageal reflux from your sleeve. Try not to eat or drink close to bedtime, maybe raise the head of your bed or sleep on a couple of extra pillows. Hopefully after the swelling in your stomach goes down the Fluid will stay where it's supposed to be!

I agree, I coughed like crazy after surgery and kept the lady awake all night that was in the room with me. I have Gerd and that is when it started. Good luck

Hi Tracyringo, thanks. Each night seems to be a little bit better. I never heard of GERD and looked it up. I never had acid re flux or anything like that until after my surgery. I take Prilosec daily in the morning and last night I also took one before bed. Still woke up coughing but I slept longer before it started. It is painful and pretty scary. I don't eat or drink anything after 6. Bless you and congrats on your journey.

It was my 3rd PPI that took care of it. Have you talked to your Dr. about trying a better PPI ?

        Mostly alright. Of course we're scared about COVID and we're getting more and more patients that tested positive.

        It's kind of draining to see only the severe cases. It kind of makes you blind to the milder cases that never show up at the hospital and in the end that's the majority of SARS-CoV-2-positive people.

        I agree

      The dogs have finally figured out the new schedule for walking twice a day...and keep bugging me at the appropriate times to go out. For those of you who dont't have dogs, they have no snooze function. So they have really held up the bargain of being my personal trainers. Who's a good boi?!?
