A week after.......

Recommended Posts

So my surgery was on the 17th of March, first couple of days was rough as far as me I can not tolerate pain at all especially when it comes to my stomach and head. So the second night after surgery ( for those thats about to get it or thinking about please keep in mind EVERYONE BODY IS DIFFERENT EVERYONE PROCEDURE IS DIFFERENT AND EVERYONE PAIN LEVEL IS DIFFERENT) I was in the worst mood ever and the worst pain ever they kept wanted me to walk and drink Water in which I couldn't do either, I thought I had made the worst decision in my life!!!! So once they seen I wasn't doing to well I received meds for pain and nausea and I was OUT! for that night. The next day my nurse came in and said heyyy I have your Cymbalta for you........ ( keep in my somebody got smart along with myself ) and some other meds okay that explains a lot duhhhh I haven't taken my meds in a couple days then all of this yeah I know my fault but I have been dealing with a lot...... make it shorter, once I began to feel more of myself alot things started to come together, but still not able to drink water I don't like this because that's all I drink!!! Is water then I notice I can't swallow my Salvia and when I do thats when I get sick to my stomach...... so a nurse helped me with crystal light (THANK GOD) Me walking the hospital still wasn't feeling it I just wanted to sleep I walked maybe 2 times or 3 times I was just ready to go so I can be around my kids and get to start the healing with them, let me explain....... my kids are my my everything I just lost my husband their father of 19 years my best friend in January all of sudden. So being away from them for too long was not option or my dogs. Once I got home I had one bad night very little pain a little nausea rather than that I feel like myself. My advice for those getting ready for this big step........if this is what you want and need then GO FOR IT!!!! STOP DEBATING pray meditate do whatever it is you do, but don't just not go threw with it because of someone's else's experiences or problems, their problem ain't your problems and theirs problem ain't yours, and do not have the surgery because of the opinions of others do it for self and self worth. IM HAPPY I DID.

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
