Hey, I don’t want to sound like a know-it-all because I don’t, but you mentioned Advil above and everything I’ve read and from my surgeon said stay away from anything that’s not acetaminophen. (I think due to a blood thinning affect). It had me worried so I thought I’d just mention it. You know what’s best for you so feel free to ignore me. Good luck with your continued recovery!

Thank you! I appreciate the kind advice. My surgeon prescribed the advil for me in liquid form to take alternating with the Tylenol.

To echo what VSGJen said, I was also advised against Advil. Also against Ibuprofen, Motrin, Naprosyn and Aleve. These Meds put you at high risk for ulcers. I was advised to stick to Tylenol for pain. Perhaps risk is reduced with Sleeve. Not sure.
Best check with your doc.

Thank you! My surgeon prescribed the liquid ibuprofen for me.

Yes the gas pain and constipation were the worst! They also had to go back in and do an endoscopy through my incisions the day after surgery. I had a horrible experience, but feel like that is all almost behind me.

I’m starting to notice my shirts fitting better.

Very sorry to hear this. My surgery was 3/25 so I’m in week 3 as well. Hopefully you can get better and get home. Positive vibes sent!

Just going into week 3 now too. I’m so sorry to hear this. Although so far I feel relatively fine after the gastric bypass, I’m not unfamiliar to post op complications from major surgery so I can relate. Hope you get some relief and resolution to your situation soon! 🤞

My first thought was that you’re perhaps trying to be more active and/or lifting things you shouldn’t. You shouldn’t be lifting anything over 10 Ibs for 6 weeks. But if you’re following advice, perhaps some incisions are taking longer than others to heal. When my steri strips came off, after week 1, all incisions were healed with the exception of one which was slightly open and more sore. It’s closed and healed now. When you have your surgeon follow up appointment, if the pain hasn’t resolved then , bring it up. But if it’s keeping you up at night and making you uncomfortable all the time, I’d bring up now.

I almost said the same thing about regretting my decision. Week 2 and 3 were very difficult. I had complications I did not expect. To make things worse, I did everything I was told to do and I STILL had complications. I too ended up in the ER after surgery. In general I think preparing us more for the potential complications and even the likelihood of needing continued IVF and oxygen would have been appropriate. I have very few comorbidities which is why I was so surprised when I needed to go home on oxygen from the hospital.

Despite the complications and a terrible recovery I am glad I went through with it. I know the lifelong benefits of losing this weight will add quality to my life.

I hope you are feeling better. Hang in there. I'm so sorry you are going through this.
