Good to know..how was your pain level

I had very little pain post op. From my time on here I have heard of pain all over the map though immediately post op. I think what seems to be the worst for the majority of people immediately post op is the gas pain from the air they fill you up with.

That's what I'm hearing. I have 2 bad knees and need to bring my walker to the hospital hoping it's easier than I'm planning

I think there are more people with little to no pain we think. You see more from people who are having issues because they need help with those issues. No real reason to post about everything going great.

How are you doing on pre op diet...im drinking the Protein Drinks as instructed and I gained 2pds I pray this does not effect my surgery I've lost weight all along the way been doing Keto so I'm not sure if I stalled...anyone have this issue also

Currently on Pre-op Diet and I lost 8 then stalled a day and now I'm up an lb. I'm assuming Water weight but of course, It was frustrating seeing the scale go back up. Our bodies are so weird in how they work!

That’s awesome. Glad to hear it. Just keep sipping and walking and remember you did still just have major surgery so you may feel tired. Just give into it and rest when your body tells you to and it should help you recover a little quicker since we heal while we sleep. I had very little pain as well but I was still wiped out. I took naps daily for a while post surgery.

Just keep reminding yourself 2 things:

1)I just had major surgery is more then OK to take it easy, it's necessary. My body is healing.

2)I need to follow my eating plan so my stomach can heal properly. J B.

It may not always be easy but in the long run you'll be happy you did. This is an amazing tool towards your weight loss. You got this!

      To working out faithfully for 5 days a week. Lets go back to that year with a more positive mind, 
       
      SKINNY SZN HERE WE COME!!!!
       
      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

Honestly, I feel like you don’t truly understand this process unless you go through it! Don’t be shy, say hello and let’s support each other during this journey 🙂

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
