Luna805, for some reason I can’t figure out how to quote your post. But my hospital stay was 2 nights plus the entirety of one more day. Went home at night. I had pain for a few days, the worst on the first day. But I was on my period and that made matters worse.

Hi all - I'm the 23rd November as well. So far, it's a go (but still worrying about cancellations due to Covid as I know many of you are, too). Did my lab-work today (blood test, COVID screen), planning a weekend of focus, self-care, and ritual to Celebrate this new beginning, and then off to the hospital Monday morning at 6am.

Hi, I had my mini gastric bypass surgery yesterday. Feeling tired and sore but otherwise ok. Converted from a gastric band which I had 7.5 years ago. Lost lots of weight but unfortunately put it back on so hoping this time I can really get to grips with the lifestyle changes to lose and keep it off.

Hi Shellzuk. I did also. I’m having troubles keeping liquid down. I put a teaspoon in a shot glass of Water, and drink a teaspoon. I fill it stays in my chest. How are you doing?

Well I’m home and everything went great! The surgical gas pains are still a little bothersome but I’m dealing with it. food doesn’t even sound good so I’m very happy with my water/Gatorade zero & premier shakes. One hurdle over and going to learn each day on how to do this right.

Hi all ! I am having sleeve to gastric bypass revision on 11/23 . I had VSG done at the end of 2017. I lost 100lbs with the sleeve. I was short of my final goal but I was still happy with my results .

I developed bile reflux this year and my surgeon felt this was the best way to treat it . I’m not really looking forward to surgery but I’ll be happy without the reflux and extra medicine I have to take.

I’m nervous but I’m ready to get it over with .

Good luck everyone !

Had COVID test today(NEGATIVE), phone pre-op, and found out my arrival time is 830am MONDAY!! OMG I can't believe it's almost here! The pre-op diet sucks... I haven't lost near as much as I thought I would, only about 10 lbs so far. My period started, but that shouldn't have much of an impact on it, or I wouldn't think so anyway. I've been so nervous that they would call it off for one reason or another. Now, the only reason I can see that they would call it off would be if they called off elective surgeries, but it doesn't sound like they will.

I can’t drink much but not really struggling to keep it down. First night at home last night and it was ok. In a little pain now so hoping a few drugs will take that off. How’s your pain?

Hi Shellzuk...my pain is low. It’s more aches than pain. I find it is hard to get comfortable in a position in bed or on the couch. But once I find it, I’m good. I have only taken pain meds once per day at night to allow me to sleep. I only sleep for 2-3 hours at a time throughout the day. This is now day 3....I feel much better today. I will try a little Protein Shake today and see how that works. I’m excited to see the scale go down. I went up after surgery but I’m reading that is common with the fluids they keep you on in the hospital.

I had my mini gastric bypass on 17 November. They were threatening to cancel it but it went ahead in the end. I’m struggling quite a bit with nausea, pain and fatigue, but everyone keeps telling me it will pass. I certainly hope so!

Yes, I felt the same yesterday. Not really with pain...I just have aches, and not in the surgery area. It is the air/gas trapped inside. I’m feeling great today. I heated up my chocolate Protein Shake and have been sipping 30ml every 10 minutes. Whatever it takes. I think the first 4 weeks -8 weeks will be the most challenging. Figuring out what works and how much. I’m walking around a lot. Even put in laundry!! Now I will relax.

Wow that’s impressive! I’ve got pain on my left side underneath my boob which is making me struggle and I just feel weak. Haven’t started on Protein Shakes yet though. Just had some sugar free jelly and managed about 30 ml of that. I know I just need to give myself chance to heal but I’m impatient!
