I just had the surgery on the 29th...

I woke up crying just bc I woke up to pain and the most extremely dry throat I've ever had.

Ice chips have saved me and soothed throat and stomach.

I went walking about five times since yesterday to try to alleviate the gas pains in my stomach, mostly left side, all the way up to my left shoulder but the counter effect is my stomach hurts now... I found that holding a pillow to my stomach while walking does help... it won't eliminate the pain but it helps.

I can tell once I'm healed I will be very happy and thankful for this procedure. It's going to be life changing and any surgery will cause soreness and some pain right after it's done, but I'm not regretting it at all.


Ice chips are my friend. Getting in and out of the bed in my hospital room is my enemy and eventually I found myself resting in the recliner in my hospital room and that was much better on my stomach.

I also have a heating pad on my stomach and feel pretty good just resting here... lol but know I've got to get up soon to walk and then be discharged from hospital.

Good luck everyone!

Glad you are doing well.

I found the walking while my stomach giggle painful after I was discharged, while in hospital the nerve blockers were fooling me.

Had my 1 week post op appointment, everything went well. I have been doing good with my Fluid almost at 55oz and I'm taking in about 40g of Protein. Pain is small on that incision and only when I do certain movements. I'm cleared to start pureed on Monday.

So glad to hear you are doing so well. So far so good over here as well. I am doing well with my fluids. I keep walking and walking finally the gas is passing so i am feeling much better.

Hi friends,

I’m new. My sleeve surgery was on 11/22. If changing your lifestyle before Thanksgiving isn’t a commitment, idk what is!

Hi, I had the sleeve on 11-28. I totally agree with the whole change at the holiday. I was in the middle of the pre-op liquid diet on thanksgiving. I just explained to family and friends that it was best for me to not be around all that temptation because i know myself. I did well. I am now two days post op and so grateful i stuck with the pre op plan to the T! I am doing well so far with getting in my liquids but i get full so fast. I have to be super mindful to pace my sips. So far so good. I am praying recovery continues to go this well.

My surgeon told me not to take anything for a few days but to continue walking. He said that it takes a few days after surgery for things to get moving again, which makes sense. I am doing my best to follow their orders to a T. Everyone is different I am glad it worked. I am hoping it warms up a little more today so i can walk outside without freezing

Agree, had surgery the same day and got back to town on T day. My mom doesnt know I got the surgery but figured since I got home late we were skipping the festivities lol

It was hard but I kept reminding myself that this was a live or die situation and that made me strong. Even now when I do not feel like getting Protein in I remind myself of the why and the overall benefits

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
