I’m finally back home, so uncomfortable, I bought my very own compression boots to use at home. But somehow today my arms, they hurt so much. Perhaps I’ve been using them so much to prop myself up lol. What I like the best, is that I’m not hungry at all.

I has mine last week on Thursday. I'm surprised at how good I feel! I was nervous about getting enough Water but it hasn't been an issue. Pain is manageable.
The only thing I have trouble with sometimes is finding a comfortable position to sleep. Sometimes it's not an issue and other times -- like tonight -- I'm stuck awake because no matter which way I lay, it's uncomfortable.
Mine was last Thursday as well. I am a stomach sleeper so U put a pillow on my sore incision and lay on my side. It works great! I feel better than I have ever before!

I had My sleeve done last Thursday. Other than some over medicating in recovery, surgery was smooth. The Pre l-Op diets work because they didn't even have to retract my liver at all. I went into Pre-Op diet weighing 325lbs and when I went into the hospital, I only weighed 308. Then yesterday at my PCP check up, I weighed only 298 5 days post-op. It is amazing

That’s great I’ve lost 15 pounds since preop diet. Unfortunately for me, It didn’t help shrink my liver. I was surprised to wake up with six incisions. Initially I was expecting the laparoscopic incision via the umbilical. I know I did not cheat, but he said my liver was unusually large. 🤷🏽‍♀️
but it’s done, hey welcome to the other side sleeve sista!

Congrats on the surgery and your weight loss. Hope you are feeling good. My doctor told me my liver was unusually large as well. I lost weight prior, too...47 pounds. Weird. ;)

For those of us who had surgery today, how are you feeling? Aside from gas pain and some slight incision pain I'm doing pretty well.

Getting surgery on Sept 29th. Currently on day two of the pre op Slim time diet and Migraines have hit me hard! Hopefully this isn't the case after surgery!

I had mine Monday and came home yesterday. I am able to move around and drink plenty of fluids. These gas pains though are no joke. Sometimes it feels like I'll be sick, which thankfully hasn't happened yet either. One incision site is extremely tender but manageable. Because I am maintaining liquid well, I can do pureed tomorrow. Excited for feeling a bit better each day and will be happy once this new stomach pains cease.

Heyy everyone! so I have 13 days till surgery! Yesterday was my official day of liquids. I actually started a few days early to get a jump-start, doing pretty well with my liquid diet. Anyone who has had surgery have any advice for us going in? I am a mom of four kids, so I keep prepping my husband on everything. So he's not caught off guard with my life changes. I want to be as prepared as I can be!

Yes on the 30th...can’t wait! My liquid diet is going pretty good, shocking I haven’t been hungry. How are you doing?

My surgery is tomorrow. I'm Clear Liquids today after a 10 day Liquid Protein diet. So far, so good. I am so ready for this!

Hello

I am happy to hear that your day has come to join the family. I pray that your surgery goes well and look forward to chat with you after your surgery during your post op phases.
