TGIF DS comrades!

Just home from the hospital yesterday after a week in the hospital. RNY 13 years ago was successfully laparoscopic and I was home on my treadmill the next day. Not so with the DS. Multiple complications, 5.5 hour surgery plus other procedures, severe blood loss, a drain out my side and a 13” incision from above my breastbone to my pubic bone, as well as a several severe intestine/colon-related issues.

I planned on 3 days in the hospital and ended up with 6-8 weeks out of work.

I am scared, I can barely function right now, let alone keep track of the 8 million rules about Water, Protein and Vitamin intake. Just looking for some support from anyone who has been through this!

Many thanks and sending you all warm wishes today and always!

PS: Is there an app for this forum for easier access?

I have't been through it but just wanted to say hi/welcome and hopefully things improve significantly from now on for you.

Don't know about an app, there may well be one, but I access the forums by using an unread posts link...it shows all new posts regardless of which subforum they have been posted in.

Omg! Sweetie!! Well wishes for you. Yes download the Batiatric pal app. I hope you start to feeling better. Did they say the complications was from the previous RNY? I have heard after about 11+ years they are finding quite a bit complications occurring? Do you have people at home that can help you through this time?
