March 2024 Surgery Buddies!



Recommended Posts

Just got done when my gastric bypass less than 12 hours ago. On one hand it was easier than I thought, but also on the other hand , I can't even drink one ounce at once, my new stomach hates me right now. I accidentally drank 60ml Water and felt downright nauseous. I will drink slower in the future.

Hope everyone is doing well!

I'll post more soon

My operating room is booked for 3/13 at 6:30 am for my sleeve gastrectomy. After a lot of thought and consideration over the course of a year, my first consultation to operation day was slightly less than two months. Such a whirlwind of activity!

Had mine done on March 6 and so far, so good. The surgery went well and I was up and walking while in post-op. Been on the full liquid diet since Thursday and that seems to be going fine too. I made a banana cream pie shake today and really appreciated being able to make something, though I’ll admit the straining got a little tedious.

The worst part for me was the shoulder pain due to the gas. I probably wouldn’t have taken any pain pills but took one to take the edge off the shoulder pain. It was gone the next morning anyway.

And sleeping. I almost can’t believe the amount of time I’ve spent sleeping. I’m sure it’s helping the healing but I’ve never been a napper so sleeping so much feels strange. I’m sure that will subside as well.

After seeing the Feb 2024 thread and realizing my surgery is only 6 days later, thought I’d start a thread and see if there’s anyone else scheduled in March? I’m having VSG on March 6. I’ve been planning it since last June and am very excited! Any March 2024 Buddies out there? 😀

How did your surgery go?

I'm getting RNY March 19th. I'm mildly nervous just because of anesthetics, but I feel pretty prepped for the actual surgery-related hurdles.

You're the day before me. Our time is coming up. How are you feeling?

Had my speeve done yesterday 3/5. Procedure was quick and uneventful. Woke up in recovery with no belly pain but an awful burning sensation in my chest. Nurse said this was likely trapped gas causing the pain. It has not subsided. I have been able to sleep, take liquid meds and walk a bit. I feel good about the surgery and curious how the next few days will go. I would say discomfort level is about 6/10. Not so much painful, just difficult to get comfortable. Will keep y’all posted.

Checking in to see how you feeling now?

Hi everyone. My surgery date is 3-11-24. nervous and excited at the same time. My doctor at BMI of Texas made the process very quick and easy even when dealing with Tricare Insurance. I am recommending them to anyone.

        Have a great Wednesday too! Sorry you're hungry all the time, I'm pretty much the same..and I'm sick of eating the same food all the time.

      Well, tomorrow I go in for an impromptu hiatal hernia repair after ending up in the ER over the weekend because I couldn't get food down and water was moving at a trickle... I've been having these symptoms on and off for a few weeks but Sunday was the worst by far and came with chest pain and trouble breathing. The ER PA thinks it is just esophagitis and that the surgeon and radiologist are wrong. But the bariatric surgeon swears it is a hernia, possibly a sliding one based on my symptoms. So he fit me into his schedule this week to repair it! I hope he's right and this sorts it out. He's going to do a scope afterwards to be sure there is nothing wrong with the esophagus. Here's hoping it all goes well!!

      Having gall bladder surgery in a few days and I so hope the recovery is easier than the one from the modified DS! I could use a bit of luck/pep talk for a change. I'm starting to be able to walk around without experiencing dizziness, but it would be great if the random pain in my chest and abdomen would go away!!
