Good afternoon, after a long drawn out battle to get the insurance to approve my surgery I'm scheduled for the 29th. I'm starting my liquid diet today. so far so good. this new flavor shake/ pudding is so good. I'm pleasantly surprised

Yay! Congrats! Good luck!

Hey ! Thank you :) My surgery is today I’m a bit nervous but trying to keep calm

How are you feeling? Yesterday was my 8 week but I remember this first week well!

Stay hydrated and take your meds. Everything else is small potatoes.

Hey I’m day 3 post op and I still feel muscle tenderness and bad gas. I sneezed last night and almost wanted to cry! The pain was excruciating

I finished 1 shake earlier and it looks like I’ll finish my second this evening around 8-9

fluids are good, Urine is light yellow. sugar free Gatorade is saving me right now! Might do some broth later

October 12, 2020 I had my Bypass surgery and on my 3rd day and I feel AWFUL!!!!

I had the sleeve on the 12th & it wasn’t until last night that I slept through the night & until today that I did not spend the majority of the day in bed. Feeling more like myself on Day 4 & hoping you are too! Hang in there!

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!

The bloated feeling doesn’t go away for a while from what I’m experiencing. I’m 5 days past surgery and still gassy and bloated. I took so much stuff to have a bowel movement that I ended up pooping for 12 hours! MISERABLE! Anyway, keep doing what they tell you and it will happen. Walk, walk, move in different positions, sit straight up, and drinks lots and lots of Water.

Those sneezes and coughs are no joke! I wasn’t prewarned and had a rough allergy attack in late August. Day 1 - 6 were the absolute worst, I felt a shift around day 7 - 8 and got better and better. You’re already ahead of most if you’re monitoring your urine and electrolytes. Nice job!

Had my sleeve on the 13th, and I really feel great. Was in pain for a few hours post surgery, but since then I've been feeling great, I can drink kinda fast and can already eat mushy foods :D

I noticed people mention the largest inciscion. When does this muscle soreness subside ? Did they sow the abdominal muscles back together? I never felt my insides pull like this before. I don’t have any kids so I have nothing to go by. I’m just now realizing the steps needed to do this surgery and I was like oh my .. no wonder why I feel a bit crappy.

each day goes by I feel better though

For me, it was around 6 weeks before I could sit up, cough, sneeze, twist my upper body and wear high waisted anything without pain. Some folks heal super fast and some of us take time.

one thing I did that helped me log my progress when it felt agonizingly slow was to write on my kitchen calendar. Day 6 clear pee

Day 20 glue washed off

Day 25 eggs came up, mashed p’s stayed down

ETC. That’s really helped me remember the journey when every day was slow like molasses but a week flew by abs felt like zero progress. If I could go back, I would rest after my walks and listen to music more. Natural mood booster.
Hope you’re incisions start to feel better.
