Surgery on Tuesday. Little bit Scared.



Recommended Posts

My surgery was on Tuesday morning 9/30. I was released from the hospital today. I don't have a lot of pain other the the gas pain that everyone reports. My problem is that I can't keep anything down. Not even Water. Anything I drink makes me sick to my stomach & comes back up. Anyone else have this problem? My doctor says that I shouldn't worry & give it a couple of days. Anyone have any advise.

Hey, Lenny, CONGRATULATIONS! I'm glad to see you posting so soon.

I've heard other people with this exact same complaint. Evidently your stomach has swollen more than expected. It will pass, in time, and the important thing in the meantime is to see if you can take in fluids. Try the tiniest sips possible. But don't be blind to signs of dehydration--stay in touch with your doctor!

Please post again in the morning and let us know if you're able to drink. TAKE IT SLOW, but do try to drink Water. Tiny sips, remember. No chugging!

Suck it up Lenny! Just kidding of course. Us males are for some reason not embracing this surgery like women are, so I had to slip into male mode for a second. I have enough storage on my body to carry me for a while food-wise, but the no Water thing would trouble me. Personally, I wouldn't hesitate to head to the ER for a healthy IV if I was feeling dehydrated. Hopefully things are better by now - are they??

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.

      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.
