I'm new here but I'm having the sleeve done Thursday, March 31. I'm excited, anxious, and nervous. But ready. I've been wanting this for a long time. Prayer and encouragement greatly appreciated.

Hi everyone! I thought I would finally check in. I had my surgery last Tuesday, March 22. I am six days post op and feeling okay.

I was able to de-gas by Thursday (ugh, gas pains are the worst) and I have been having daily bowel movements since then. I have a lot of medical issues and one of them is kidney disease and my kidneys are not at all happy about this surgery, which was a concern before surgery. I've actually gained weight because I cannot pee. All the Water I drink has nowhere to go but my feet, ankles and legs. I am eating about 250 calories a day because my new stomach (Phoebe) hates everything (everything tastes like metal - probably because of my meds). Oh, and I can't seem to keep my heart rate above 50.

That's all the bad stuff. The good news is that I haven't had any pain meds since the day of my surgery. My nausea isn't as bad as expected and after over doing it on Friday and taking it easy over the weekend, my incision pain is not too bad. Every day I set a goal for myself and so far, I am hitting my little goals. 🎖️

LOL! I thought I was the only one who named my new stomach (Steve, currently known as Baby Stevie). He hates several things I've tried, too. He's a picky little cuss at times.

Keep setting and reaching those little goals -- they're the best way of making steady progress toward the big ones.

Hello lovelies! Nice to meet everyone! I'm new here too. Just had my surgery on the 25th, so I'm 5 days post op, and I'm doing pretty great! Much better than I thought I'd be, lol! It only took a couple days for the gas to leave. And 2 days ago, I noticed my taste seems different and I feel like there's improved mental clarity (or less brain fog?). Has anyone noticed little changes like this?

Where are your hives (localized or more general)? I didn't have hives per se but around my incisions I was super itchy... oddly enough the incisions themselves did not itch just the skin about an inch away.

I’m 2 weeks PO sleeve and I’ve had hives for a week and a half. No spotting but very itchy. My mom had sleeve done 3 years ago and said she had the same thing. It could be left over anesthesia, food intolerance, or lack of Water consumption!

Interesting!! I am 3 weeks post op and I had hives on my wrist and hand this week. I'm not sure what caused it or why - and thankfully they went away. But what a curious question !

I had/have this too. Super itchy but just around the area. When I started applying the Aquaphor and Kelo-cote it got better.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
