I am 19 days away from surgery!! I have my endoscopy on Thursday. I’m so afraid of pain. What was your pain level? Were you in much pain? This will be my first surgery & my first time under anesthesia.

Hello! Everyone is different of course but I have to tell you that my recovery was pretty easy with no complications. I did my sleeve back in July 2018. Best decision I ever made!! Good luck to you! I wish you a easy recovery and much success!!

It was my first surgery too. I wasn't in the pain when I was still in the hospital (day 1 & 2). They had me on morphine every 2 hours.

Day 3 and 4 were pretty bad.. not gonna lie. I had no idea how much morphine was helping me.. Things progressively started getting better from day 5 on... . I only took my pain meds (tylenol 3) for 3 days (through day 5) and then I was off them.

I was uncomfortable for about 2 weeks after surgery, but not in pain.. I didn't even bother with regular OTC pain meds.

The pain level wasn't excruciating though. I'd go back & have it done again in a heartbeat, if I needed to.

Not my first surgery but by far the easiest recovery! The gas pain sucked, but I knew that going in and walked and walked. I really had very little pain at the incision sites. I think I took one Norco and then just used extra strength Tylenol. Good luck!

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.
