I had a "TAP block" or something during the surgery, so I didn't have too much pain in the hospital, plus they gave me IV tylenol and some sort of NSAID they said was safe. They sent me home with an opioid and told me to take tylenol every 8 hours as needed. I took an opioid pill once a day for three days and I didn't need it anymore, but I did have to take the tylenol for a while. I did have a fair amount of pain, especially when sitting up or when getting up from lying down. That was just in the first week. By the end of the first week, it was so much better. At two weeks, I can already sleep on my stomach.

I got a pain pump called On-Q which sends numbing medicine to the incision sites on a preset frequency through a catheter. When the medicine finishes you just pull the catheter. I had surgery on Nov 8 2021 so still using it until 5 days. Have a pain med, Gabepentin that I take 3 times a day. Still have pain sitting down and standing up and very sore. Hoping it gets better soon!

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
