Final Count Down......Surgery in 4 days



Recommended Posts

Headed home pain is just from gas no site pain was able to get a lot more fluids in. My program has a weight loss app called Bariatrics. I was able to set up 15 min reminders to drink something this is very helpful since time goes by so fast and you need to stay hydrated

I haven’t mastered how to reply on my phone but Thank you everyone for the support

Day 3 post op

Had low grade fever last night but no increased pain sites look good was gone this am. The fluids are easier to tolerate this am than they were yesterday. Tylenol is helping with pain and all I have needed except gas medicine. I have also used a heating pad which helps as well. I don’t feel hungry but want to eat... which is how I got here in the first place .

End of day 3 I was able to get down 48oz of liquids I have been using a heating pad to the stomach walking once and hour taking Tylenol and Gas X every 6 hours. I find drinking standing up is the easiest for me. Warm fluids feel better than cold to me and chamomile tea seems to ease the stomach pain. I haven’t used the Biotene in the hospital once other wise I have been taking sips to keep my mouth moist. I will probably get on the scale tomorrow and see where I am at I have good urine output and no swelling to the feet. Day of surgery I weight 254 stay tuned.

I did the same thing! In the first week drinking while standing was so much easier. I kept my glass on the dining room table, would do laps around the table, and then take a sip when I passed my glass. it got to be a fun game. Fun get's weird when you are holed up at home post-surgery. 😂

Sounds like recovery is going well for you, here's to good results on the scale!

Post op day 4...... 1st I got on the scale this am... down 5 pounds from morning of surgery. I only got 40 oz of fluids down yesterday. Today has been a little easier still quick pains that go away almost right away with most sips. I am really thinking it has more to do with the tumor they removed and the hernia repair my esophagus just feels really tight. I only took 1 dose of Tylenol today pain really is minimal. Passing gas but have not had a bowel movement which is a little concerning I am to call my dr after 5 days so fingers crossed for some action tomorrow. Only 3 more days of Clear Liquids then I go full liquids I have never been so excited for Tomato Soup and pudding LOL.

Hopefully my day by day will help someone moving forward I will post under post op. Thank you again for everyone’s support!
