How many days did it take you to feel ok?



Recommended Posts

My surgery is Monday. I'm wondering how many day after surgery it to feel ok. Not perfect but ok.

On day four, I felt okay to move around and work about a half day. Then every day got better after that.

Thats about what I'm hoping for. Give or take.

Swallowing felt a little painful / off for a few days, but other than that I pretty much felt fine right away. I was in the hospital overnight and went home late the next day. The day after I was out running errands with the wife and kids and I was back at work I think 6 days post-op.

Day 5 for me, but days 1-2 weren't bad because I was in the hospital getting pain medicine every 2 hours, if needed.

Things are were still uncomfortable for the first two weeks though.. not painful, just not comfortable.

I had surgery on a Thursday and went home on Friday. The first few days were a little rough, but by Tuesday (5 days after surgery), I could have gone back to work. Even in the first few days after surgery, though, I was ok -- I didn't have any pain by the time I got home from the hospital, and I was able to walk around the house and take care of myself.

on Day 3 I started walking almost 3 miles. Day 4 I felt a little pain when I first stood up or when I sneezed/coughed.

Day 4 felt pretty ok, day five felt really good. And we just won’t talk about day one or two, it’s over now and I won’t have to do it again.

I was sleeved on Monday 11/2 and felt pretty good by Thursday of that week. I'm 13 days out now and feel pretty normal. I made sure to walk even when I didn't feel like it, cough and use the spirometer-thingy and it helped. The first two days were quite unpleasant and I had to train myself to stop gulping my drinks, but it gets better. Good luck - you will be great!!!

Thanks for posting. I'm leaving in a few hours for surgery.

I had RNY on a Tuesday. Went home on Wednesday and resumed my workouts on Saturday. I was never in pain and it was really uneventful.
