I had my surgery on 3/24 and im

doing well. Gas pains are in my shoulder and the top of my pouch. I’ve been walking in my house ever 30 mins. This morning was the First time I was able to drink a half a cup of sugar free Powerade. I had my buyers remorse when night after my surgery. Everything hurt and I just cried. I’m so glad I feel better today.

I’m feeling the same way hang in there. These are the worst of the days and they’ll soon be behind us.

I had my Sleeve surgery March 11, 2022. I have been breezing along I still have pain in my largest incision site. I have started with soft food and so far no issues.

Love to hear a positive post. Thanks for sharing!

By this time next week it will be April, and all of us who had March surgeries will be on the mend. I hope we can continue this thread and keep helping and encouraging each other with this exciting new way of life.

To those having surgery this week, best of luck!

Has anyone had to drink magnesium citrate before surgery? I’m scheduled for tomorrow and was instructed to drink two 10 oz bottles, two hours apart. I’m really struggling getting them down

I had RNY on 3/21 and I’m 6 days post-op. Abdomen still kinda sore, still having some gas pressure in the chest, but overall good! Just kind of irritated by the frequent clusters of hiccups I get occasionally because that contracts my entire abdomen and it hurts. Is that normal??

I didn’t have to do this… what is it for? To make you go #2?

Ladies with incision pain, are you applying a topical like Aquafor (not antibiotic) to the top of your wounds? It helps to keep the tissues moist and aids in minimizing the scar? If not, it may help. Do not apply to open wounds but once scabbed it’s a go.
