Glad to hear you’re home and managing the pain. Hopefully it will subside soon.

I’m four days pre-op, and trying to prepare myself. I really appreciate everyone sharing their experiences.

I know it seems hard right now, but this too shall pass.

Walk as much as you can... it really does help move the gas

Each day will totally get better. Im 6 days post op and feel really good. I felt great yesterday too. I think sense day 4 i have been sleeping on my sides and belly with no issue (lol a big highlight in my life..im not a back sleeper) i would def recommend just keeping up on ur Protein and water.. makes a huge difference i feel.. i skipped stuff sorta one day and i FELT IT..i had NO ENERGY and that sucked.. won't make that mistake again.

Yes sleeping in my bed made the recovery faster for sure. I’m 13 days post op and feeling great. I’m just about over with the liquid diet and starting purée tomorrow. I’ve been waking 1 1/2 a day for the last week and it’s really helped my with my energy. So far I am down 14 lbs since my surgery and I can’t wait to start the next stage of my journey. Hope you are doing well.

Its important that you take your pain meds, walk to keep the circulation throughout your body. Its ok not to go outdoors but at least walk around the house slowly.

Thank you! I’m 1 month out and feeling great. I did have a question. Wow 2016 that’s amazing! How do you feel? Any regrets? How do you know if your eating too much? I’m averaging about 700-1000 cals per day and although my weight loss is good I just don’t want to ruin what I worked to get. Any help would be great.

I feel great though i have not met my goal which was primarily my fault. I stalled by eating incorrectly snacking, not drinking Protein. But I have been disxoplined now. Im going to the gym, taking my Vitamins, drinking my Water, doing my shakes. I have no regrets at all. I underwent the first WLS in 2009 and it was the lapband. I loss the largest bulk of my weight from 2009 through 2015. Though i faced a plateau for one year due to an erosion of my stomach i gained some weight back but i still had no regrets. If i ever need to reconsider i would do it again

But this time around I realized that i need discipline so i put myselt on Intermittent fasting.

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
