Any March 2021 Sleeve Patients?



Recommended Posts

Oh yes, my surgery is booked for March 15th. Struggling with the pre op diet if I’m honest. But I’m getting there. Good luck to everyone this month 🤗

I just got scheduled for March 24th.
my dr does not require a pre op diet. I just have to be on liquids the day before and no food or drink past midnight sort of thing.
I am so excited! I started this process in March of last year and because of covid and delays it has taken this long to get this far !
because I am with Kaiser my process has been a bit different than others. I’ve had to do a weight loss program, classes, and counseling for months to prepare for this

I had surgery on 3/1 and had a few complications but still got to go home after about 24 hours. I had a band to sleeve revision and my band had slipped and was doing some damage to my liver - so I have a lovely drain on my side for another few days.

Thankfully very little nausea or pain. The worst has been the gas pain that is near the drain site - it is stabbing. Showering has been difficult but I still get up and (slowly) walk as much as I can. Staying hydrated too. Looking forward to getting the drain removed next week which I think will make me feel 1000% better.

I had a surgery a couple years ago that required a drain and let me tell you getting that out will be heaven! Thinking of you. I’m a former lapband patient going to get my sleeve here soon. I had been scheduled in February and it got postponed at the last minute. Rest assured I’m thinking of you because drains are no fun but the other side is glory with that aspect. :)

I had mine done March 1st, home after 32 hours... pain and lack of sleep through the first day, but started feeling better after a nap and change in pain meds. Been home 2-3 days and am mostly sore on right side. Dr said this is where he pulled the stomach out and sewed it up tight so I don’t get a hernia. I am challenged to bend over, even just a little like when I am trying to sit or stand. shakes are going well, hydration is fair, I feel like I could do better. I’m using Senekot instead of Miralax...still waiting.... I know it takes times, I just wish I knew how long...oh well, still glad I did it!

I had my surgery on Wednesday March 2, but not doing very well, I am still in the hospital. The day of surgery I had a hard time urinating. They kept taking bladder scans and found a problem. A blood clot and leaking from the staples. They took me back into surgery yesterday and were able to remove it, then they put clamps where the staple line was leaking blood. Yesterday had some pain, to days only pain is getting out or in bed or a chair. Hospital broth is the worse so I am sticking to sugarless Jello.

Surgeon has been doing this 11 years and has only experienced problems like this twice and both were in the last 6 months.thank goodness they put in a catheter while I was asleep yesterday because getting out of a bed or chair is very painful.

now tonight I had problems with intravenous, as they are giving me liquids and all the other ones hurt so bad so they did an ultra sound to find a good vein, so now it is in my upper arm.

with all these complications I keep questioning myself on why I did this.

Good luck to everyone else, hope you don’t ave the problems I have experienced.
