Gastric Bypass Yesterday



Recommended Posts

I had my surgery yesterday November 23rd and it went well. I also had hernia repair at the same time. So far I am not in much pain just a little discomfort. The nurses were surprised at how well I was doing. I drank two bottles of Water. Took me several hours but I got and keep it down. No Nausea and i have I walked every our sometimes twice an hour to help with the gas. For now the gas discomfort is completely tolerable. The worst pain was my throat from the intubation, but still tolerable. I just made my first Bariatric Fusion shake today and so far so good. Just slipping on water in between. I know I will probably have some bad days, but I’m happy the start has been really good.

So glad you are doing well.
They made my daughter drink from a medicine cup every 15 min.
I wasn’t a true “bariatric” so the orthopedic floor didn’t know what to do with me.

They told me in the beginning that I would be a medicine cup, but when they saw I well I drank from the bottle. I guess said never mind to the medicine up.

Congrats! I did similarly well with Water post-op and had the hernia repair too. Glad your pain isn't too bad, and hope it stays manageable when you get home.

Roughest part is done - go you!

Congratulations! My RNY was last Friday, the day after Thanksgiving. I'm doing good drinking. I posted on another page, I'm a little worried because I'm taking bigger drinks than the medicine cup. I took Tylenol (liquid) at noon today and I was fine until 9 PM. I took a pain pill at 6:30 this morning and then again a little while ago. My breast bone and down my left side is very sore, but all in all, I'm going goo. No hunger at all right now. I'm glad it's over with and I'm on the road to recovery. Good luck, keep us all posted!!

      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!

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      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.
