Just got told my new surgery date will be August 14th. I hope it's not cancelled again because of covid. But here in jax FL it's all kind of crazy now. We will see. Start my low carb diet tomorrow.

I had my surgery on July 28th. Everything went very well but the incision pain is off the charts here in day 2. I know the gas bloating is causing a lot of it and I haven’t been able to get it out. I’ve been walking a ton too.

Anyone have a suggestion to help with this? Mentally I’m doing good but this would go a long way towards my mojo.

Yes they are but not when I’m walking. I wouldn’t worry to much on pain because the nurses and doctor do what’s needed to keep you comfortable. Incision pain ya normal but apparently I had more muscle to get in to that caused more pain after.

Oh...my muscle is pretty limited (and kind of soft and squishy LOL) so I won't have that trouble! :)

Good luck! You will do great. One thing I didn’t know is that surgery paralyzes your bladder. This will be only for a few hours or a couple days. If they do a catheter then no issue. If they don’t, it’s so bizarre to want to pee but nothing happens. They will monitor that.

I'm officially post op. The first two days were rough so I ended up staying an extra day at the hospital. Third day and I'm feeling much better. Working on my Water intake and lots of naps.

Leg cramps could be caused by electrolyte imbalance (Potassium and/or magnesium deficiency) related to all of your recent diet changes (liquid-regular-liquid again). Just give a heads up to your surgeon. Good thoughts for a boring surgery coming your way!

      To working out faithfully for 5 days a week. Lets go back to that year with a more positive mind, 
       
      SKINNY SZN HERE WE COME!!!!
       
      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
