Had surgery yesterday and should be discharger by 4pm today. Overall Im good but that excess medical gas is rough. Couldn't really get comfortable last night and ended up walking a ton. Just passed my swallow test and finally (after just about 48 hrs of NPO) got a meal tray. Single bite of orange popsicle and a few sips of Water, and Im full. That is gonna take some getting used to :)

Heading home now, I’ve only had Water and G2 Gatorade. Can’t seem to tolerate anything else yet but that’s fine. I’ll be on liquids again tomorrow then adding Protein Shakes and other thin items after that for the next two weeks. Glad to be over the surgery huddle and going home to start on the new me.

I’m home from Surgery. A little over 24 hours in the hospital. Just chewed up a Pepcid and a norco and going to take a nap before everyone is home for the day. Shoulder pain is almost gone. Incision pain is not bad unless a twist or bend over.... lift with your legs.

Did anyone not get approval from insurance for in patient surgery? I'm worried about having to come home same day.

I had the gastric sleeve surgery 12/2 and in my mind there was no way I would even want to go home same day. The pain being administered via IV was much stronger and immediate. I could hardly move for 6 hours after surgery, but they had me up and lightly walking in 8 hours, albeit gingerly. After spending one night and most of the second day, I was ready to go home and sleep in my own bed. You wont get much sleep day 1 as you slept during surgery and in recovery, so it's good to lay flat at home and get some real sleep.

Surgery was a success for the gastric sleeve on Wednesday 12/2. I stayed one night in the hospital to treat the pain and discomfort with IV fed pain meds, which worked miracles. I was discharged yesterday after being able to tolerate Water and pass gas (you'll get sick of them all asking if you passed gas, but it's important). So at home and dealing with stomach soreness, sipping water every 30 minutes as instructed and taking pain meds. sleep was great in my own bed, just in the stage of feeling full of gas and the stomach rumbling almost non-stop, which is all to be expected. The staff took great care of me and I have ZERO regrets and the process was great! If you are getting closer to your date or have any pre-op diet or actually surgery process questions, don't hesitate to ask. Good luck of you are right behind me in your process, ease your mind and let the doctors and nurses take total care of you!

My surgeon changed my surgery date to 12/28. Sad but grateful. I start 3 weeks of liver shrinking pre op diet on 12/7. I’m so ready.

I am 12/29 and start my liver shrink on 12/7 also. So may mixed emotions and anticipation! What is your diet plan for the next 3 weeks?

Noob here...first post. I am 4 days Post-Op Bariatric Sleeve (11/30/2020) and suffering through the SIP, SIP, SIP torture. I am truly amazed at the lack of residual pain. I started this journey almost 2 years ago at a massive 364 and almost 47 BMI, due to covid my original op date was pushed and this past Monday I weighed 332 (almost 43 BMI) when I laid on table. Agree that the timing really interferes with the Holiday meals, but I cannot wait to see the results.
