I was an October 14 sleever but my A1C was too high but now I’m back on schedule for Oct 27 🙌🏽

Well, that’s not too far away. When they scheduled me back in August for October, I thought it was an eternity away. I could’ve used a few more days... lol! Time crept up fast! Good luck!

I am on my third day out and am still dealing with quite a bit of pain I’m having trouble passing gas and then the doctor found a hiatal hernia that he fixed. I spent one night in the hospital and came home on Tuesday evening.
My stomach still hurts and the incisions are tender. What has your experience been?

Good luck to all, especially my October surgery peeps.

I had gas pain up until about the 4th day. Once you're able to pass the gas well you will feel much better. I stopped taking pain meds on about day 5 I believe. Its been 9 days since my surgery(Oct.6) and I went back to work today and completely forgot I even had surgery done lol.

I had the bypass and hiatal hernia repair Monday the 12th as well and I’m still having really bad gas pains. I am passing the gas and having bowel movements but still have bad pain in my upper back. Everything gets better each day but it’s still painful. I’m not taking any pain meds because of how sensitive I am to them but I am taking Tylenol for the pain. I just keep walking and getting in my fluids. I know it will get better but it has been pretty rough. I hope you feel better soon!

Hey everyone. Day 3 post op. I’m trying to increase my fluids. Got some Gatorade zero which is helping a lot.

gas is still here but not as bad as day 1-2. I’m passing gas and burping. Still haven’t passed a bowel movement

I’ve been home 2 days and the pain was terrible. I took a shower today and the heat/steam really help loosen things up. Im starting to feel better. Now, if I can get rid of this bloated feeling!

        I ended up having the surgery on March 1st.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

      I honestly haven’t weighed myself since surgery, looking forward to doing it!
