Yes and I had bad anxiety over all the changes and the things that were happening at the time. I would say by 4 to 6 weeks I was okay as far as tiredness. What do you think about it so far versus the sleeve ? Are you eating solids? Dr. Edwards let me move quickly and at 1 week I was eating soft food. Wendy wasnt too happy if I remember correctly but they moved me the same way when I had VSG so I wasnt to concerned and did fine.

Had my revision on 11/19 and it only been 8 days but still having a hard time sitting up for long periods of time. I have to lay down at some points during the day. I'm able to get my Protein in since I have it in everything I eat and drink. So have to say it's not that bad now that the swelling in my stomach has gone down.

Congrats !!! The recovery time was better I thought with the revision. The pain was worse though after surgery. Glad you are doing well and getting all your Protein needs met.

GREAT NEWS !!!! I had my EGD this morning and I have went from esophagitis grade D to grade A !!!! I am healing and I dont have ulcers !!!

Bad news the meds didnt knock me out and I was awake this time !!! Groggy but awake. They said my vitals were dropping and could not give me anymore medication. I went in with a 47 heart rate to begin with and my blood pressure is always low too ...........I dont know what it dropped down to for them to not give me more meds to put me out.

They are sending me to the hospital next time to do an acid test since I am still burning and this time they will knock me out !

It was a damm JOKE. Sarcasm! Don’t claim to be an expert. This isn’t the first time you’ve come across in a snarky know it all way. I’ve seen it. Don’t act like you’ll never have/think of pizza or ice cream or a damm cookie. It’s life. You’re not an expert or you wouldn’t be here with us. This isn’t my first rodeo ... I was joking with someone who had a recipe I never heard of. I also meant that I can’t have ricotta. Why is that bad to prep myself before hand to a newer way of life moving forward from a sleeve.

OMG are you two going to argue like school children? This is not the place to be immature. If you can't get along just don't respond to one and other. I'm sure some of the others don't want to read this either.

I hope I didn't overstepped my grounds but I felt I had to put my 2 cents in

Got my surgery on the 21. I thank God that everything went well for me. No nausea, and gas pain so far. Do you guys take Vitamin right after discharged from hospital?

I am weighing in at 165 this morning. I am 3 months and 3 days post op VSG to RNY. My weight seems pretty stable in the 160s which is nice. I always felt like I was struggling to keep it in the 160s with the VSG. I feel normal now like before surgery.
I am still having a little burning in the mornings before I take my PPI and they are wanting me to start switching the PPI off with something else. I am awful and cant remember if it was pepcid or zantac.. I have not been rescheduled yet for an EGD but am hoping they do that at my next post op visit in 3 months. I need peace of mind that this worked and I am healing from the erosive esophagitis grade D.
I had another episode where I overate and had to leave a dinner. UGH. I was sick for around 2 hours afterwards. I didnt think I had eaten that much but I was wrong !! I still have to be mindful of what I eat and how much. Anyone who has had the bypass know exactly what I am talking about, it is awful dumping or overeating !!

I heard that Zantac was on a lawsuit for causing cancer but don't take my information for it research yourself. FYI
