Hi! Quick question for those who were on CPAP on the day of surgery. Did you take your CPAP machine for the hospital stay. Did you use it while at the hospital? Thanks!

I took mine, but I never used it while in the hospital

I took mine and used it. I slept in the recliner in my hospital room and put the CPAP on the tray that they would place my food on.

My surgeon required I had the CPAP with me the day of surgery. When I got to my room I never even gave it a thought since I was so out of it. I ended up using it for maybe an hour or so.

I don’t use a cpap but I do recall that being on the list of things to bring to hospital.

I was told to bring my mask and hose, but not the machine. I didn't use it at all (I was in and out the same day). I did sleep and somehow I managed to sleep without it, and apparently I wasn't snoring.

Yes, take your CPAP. If you are kept overnight you will use it.

Thanks for all replies! I will take mine. I've been using mine for years every night. I am one of those that had apnea before gaining weight.. not hopeful that mine will go away after surgery :).

Lucky you. I hope it's because you no longer have apnea and not that you just quit using your CPAP.

You should call your DME (durable medical equipment) provider who sold you the CPAP so they can replace it with one that doesn't.

      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.
