Definitely in pain, moving around ok though. Had moments of questioning why I did this to myself earlier but I know I made the right choice!

I had my surgery on Jan 4th as well. Had the sleeve like 6 years ago, but gained a lot of weight back. All is going well so far. I see my doctor this Thursday for follow up and hopefully I go on soft foods!

Today is the day, after having my surgery pushed back due to Covid staffing shortages from 12/27, till today 1/10 I am excited but so very nervous. This being my first surgery ever it’s a little nerve wracking. Wish me luck!!

Hello! Thought I would start out this group as I have a surgery date for Jan 4, 2022!! I'm so excited and a bit anxious for the pre-op diet - I will be starting it while on vacation - but what a great way to say Hello to the New Year!!

I had my surgery on the same day! How are you holding up so far?

Hi! My surgery was cancelled due to COVID hospitalizations. It has been rescheduled for March 8 now. How are you feeling? Any insight to share?!

Oh no! I’m glad it’s still on though!

Today is the first day that I’ve felt like myself, and I’m up doing laundry and things.

The biggest thing that I can say, and I know everyone says it, is STAY HYDRATED. I missed my hydration goal a few times and had to go get an IV to replies what I lost, and I didn’t realize how bad I felt till I was hydrated again. The slow sip sip sips were killing me, so I’m not chugging Water, but I’m taking normal drinks and that seems to be working so much better for me.

EDIT: I don’t know about other’s, but the absolute worst pain for me, for about 4 days out was the CO2 gas stuck in my chest. It feels awful, but it will pass!

      😫 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!!

        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 .
