From everyone I have talked to , it seems like the first 3 days are the worst. Your body just went thru trauma and it's trying to figure things out. Rest and be comfortable ! Take it slow and you'll be fine. :)

Oh yes it’s normal. The first 24 hrs you still have anaesthetic in your system which is why you likely slept a lot yesterday. Now you’re starting to feel the pain, discomfort, muscle strains, maybe some nausea, etc. & generally feeling blah. The surgery is pretty major but in another couple of days you’ll notice you’re starting to improve.

All the best.

I had surgery 12/6 and I dry heaved for HOURS that night.
Today is better than yesterday for me.
I am sore from the retching and heavy all night. Can I ask what is feeling worse? Are you more nauseous? I feel like I’m more weak/tummy turning like car sick..?

Its very easy to get dehydrated the first couple weeks after surgery, which will make you feel miserable if you can't stay ahead of it. Look for hydration enhancers like liquid IV or other brands that are more effective at hydrating and restoring electrolytes than Gatorade or Pedialyte is.

In addition to that, and as others have said, getting the anesthesia out of your system can make you feel weird for a few days. If there's any anti-nausea medicine you can take, you may want to look into that.

Also gas! Definitely get some Gas-X to help get rid of the random pressure and pain that can show up anywhere from your waist to your shoulder! Any walking you can do in short bursts, and raising your arms up and down while walking, will also help dispel that gas. It stayed around for nearly 2 weeks for me before getting rid of it all.

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
