Hi Everybody! Had my surgery on 2/22/21 everything went beautifully I was up and walking around and on liquids a few hours after. The hospital staff was fantastic! I'm feeling pretty good 6 days later except I have a burning sensation on my skin not the actual incisions but but between two of them feels like a sunburn and isn't constant. Has anybody else experienced this? I go for my follow up on Tuesday 3/2 so I will ask my doctor about it. Keep up the great work!!!

I had the same thing happen to me. It will go away. I had it for about a week or two after surgery. Mine was around the incision, but not on them. I would still ask the doc.

Did you do anything for it? It becomes quite painful at times.

My doc told me to put ice on it, and it helped.

About 2 weeks after surgery I had a weird pain that turned into awful itchy rash all on my abdomen around my incisions. It seemed to be some sort of reaction to the surgical glue used on my incisions. It cleared up after about 2 weeks.

Are the rashes where they injected you with lovonox? Lovonox gives a delayed allergic reaction. I know most people get injected while staying in the hospital - I had to continue to inject for 30 days after and had a terrible delayed reaction.

For me no, I only recall one shot and my rash was covering my abdomen. The only relief I got was using aloe Vera gel with lidocaine in it, it’s for bug bites or sunburn. I keep it in the fridge so it’s nice and cold.

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.
