Hello and welcome to the forum. We all had a terrible first few weeks after the surgery. There are so many new things to fit into a day. drinks, tablets, walking and so much resting and snoozing. Its so much but it does get better at about a month out.

What are you anxious about mostly ? We will have the answers and helpful tips you need at the moment.

Thanks for your reply. I was sent home on oxygen, because mine was a little low when I was walking around, that is freaking me out. They said it’s very temporary and almost everyone is sent home with it, but it’s still making me freak out. Like what if I have to be on it forever? I’m tolerating Protein shakes(at least yesterday so far) and Water, I have some gas pains and walk it out. I’m just wondering when it gets better, I knew it was going to be rough, so I don’t know why I’m questioning it now. I think it’s all the oxygen stuff.

Wow in the Uk being sent home with oxygen isn't a thing. Please contact your team, tell them your fears because I am sure being worried will only make things worse. Thinking logically, it will be the anaesthetic that will have messed with your breathing and so oxygen intake will not be where it should be. There is little reason to believe you will need the oxygen long term. If anything, your breathing will get better as you loose weight.

If you are drinking ok and walking your gas pain away. Then take nana naps as much as possible. We all feel like ' oh why did I do this to myself ' moments. Every day it gets easier

There are others who are more medically minded on here who will jump in I am sure.
