Welcome! Congrats on your weight loss so far. I can't answer if surgery is too painful because I haven't had surgery yet, but I know some people have more pain than other people. I've been preparing for surgery for five months and I'm ready for it to be "over" too! But it's never really over, it's a lifelong journey. I know what you mean; I'm ready for the surgery to be over - I'm so nervous about that part!

pain is all over the board, but most of us have little to no pain with these surgeries. I had pretty much zero pain - I actually wondered if they actually did the surgery! But they'll send you home with pain meds, so if you're one of the unfortunate ones who does have pain, you'll have the meds to manage it.

Well Im almost 3 months post op since gastric bypass surgery. What I can tell you is my pain was not that bad. But the nauseous feeling was terrible. I hated it.

I had bypass in December. I did not have much pain.

I know it's hard to wait once you have your mind set on something. My advice is to use the time to learn all you can. Surgery changes your insides. It does not change your brain, your habits and your coping mechanisms.

Am I glad I did it? Yes. Somedays it's easy. Other days are harder.

I had DS three days ago. There’s some gas pain and uncomfortable pain to be tolerated. Nothing excruciating for me. However, the nausea from the drugs kicked my butt. The other patient who had a sleeve, was fine and dandy, talking, eating, etc.

      How are you guys how are you all a little bit about me my name is Cici I had my bariatric sleeve on July 27, 2021 and six days postop currently, I have been dealing with a bit of anxiety a little depression and it’s something that no one really talks about.
      I would love followers and to follow more people throughout this journey because I’m pretty much alone I have a freak out at least once every two hours I know I did the right thing but sometimes I feel like I didn’t I also know this too shall pass and by this time next year it won’t be tears of sadness I’ll be having tears of joy so please follow me on my journey and I will do the same😍

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
