Mine was on 7/6!!! How are you doing?

Mine was on 7/6 too! I’m doing pretty well. No nausea or vomiting so I guess I’m pretty lucky. Just now starting to get all my Protein and fluids in. How are you doing? Hopefully we’ll!

New here. I was scheduled for sleeve on the 27th but my pre surgery endoscopy found changes confirmed as Barrett's esophagus. Sooooo I am now gastric bypass, fingers crossed that the VA blanket approval will be applied to my original date of surgery.

My surgery was 2 days ago. Not in too much pain except for the gas-pain, which is to be expected. I'm leaving the hospital today, I've been poked enough with needles and hope to recover nicely on my couch with my cat [emoji4]
Does anyone else have to give themselves anti-coaggulent injections at home?

I've been wondering about the blood thinning injections i know some people have to do them for up to 30 days and others don't get them at all. I haven't been told anything about them yet and my surgery is next Friday. Good luck on your recovery

So 3 days post-op now. I have to inject myself with the anti-coaggulants for 10 days and I have to do the liquid diet for 10 days as well (so 1 more week to go!).
One question... Is anyone else in the liquid stage hungry? I mean, I wouldn't be able to eat a normal meal, but I'm still hungry like I WOULD be able to... Anyone else? I can't wait to eat some solid (pureed) foods!

My revision was successful in that they were able to do the bypass and repair the hernia. I am in far more pain and discomfort than with my sleeve. Struggling with fluids because the hernia repair left inflammation in the esophagus. sugar free Popsicles are the best right now. I have a 100 degree fever and am supposed to call if it hits 101. The gas pain is ridiculous. I have tried the simethicone drops, mylanta and walking. I am using a cane to walk

My sx was the 22nd, revision as well and swelling...Use a heating pad for gas it helps and walking....Still even 3 weeks out having issues getting fluids down due to the swelling...

Doc prescribed 14 days of enoxaprin injections for me. The pharmacy accidentally gave me 18, so he said, "well, go ahead and take them."

      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!!

      2. SleeverSk

        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 .
