Hi All! I had my surgery today. Experiencing some pain but the Benadryl and pain medicine keeps me asleep.
Anyone else experience this or have experienced this?
Sending happy thoughts everyone’s way

I have a lot of pain and I think is from the gas. I only been burping. The nurse is giving me a pain killer but said I will be discharged tomorrow. Not sure if at home I will be any better. Any suggestions?

Hi Everyone, I was having serious anxiety be fore my surgery today and shared that with the anesthesiologist, and she gave me something for my emotions.

I had anxiety twice where I had tears rolling down my face, body shaking and my BP went up high. Both times was when I was waiting to go into the OR for the scope and then vsg. I had my procedure done at a surgery center. The waiting area and OR doors were only a few feet away. Even time the doors opened, more fear set it that it was my turn. When it was finally my turn, there was no time to panic. The mask was on my face and I was out. I am 8 days post op. No regrets doing the surgery.

I ate a small amount of runny Weetabix (bit like porridge) last night, 9 days post surgery, but I don't think it was runny enough and have had some bad pains today. I hope I've not caused any internal issues.

If you are still on full liquids, weetbix even runny may be too thick for you. If your post op guidelines allowed for it at this point may be delay for a few more days. if they didn't please do the best for you and your new stomach by following the guidelines.

I don't have a gastric bypass but if you look at the bypass forums you will likely find some posts from those who are (or were) one day out to a week or two out from surgery. It isn't far off for you, hope it all goes well for you

Make sure you do plenty of walking. Speak up to the nurses or surgeon if you continue to experience pain.
