Weight Loss Surgery - One week out :)

View Full Version : One week out :)

Tomorrow marks one week since my sleeve surgery :) It hasn't been bad at all! The afternoon/night after my surgery I did get sick and that is no fun lol. Dry heaving with your stomach having being cut on = no fun! It only happened 3 times so at least it wasn't more than that. I knew that I came back from surgeries fast and it was the same for this one. I got up and walked that afternoon after my surgery when I wasn't sleeping. I'm not sure if it was the anastesia or what but it knocked me on my butt lol. I couldn't wake up! Even 3 days after I was so sleepy. I even fell asleep on the doctor lol. Thank goodness my mom was there with me! I've been home since Saturday (I stayed a night at my mom's) and I've been having a pain on my right side. I looked at a diagram of the body and saw that my stomach is more on the left side/middle of my body and this is more on the right. So I don't think it's that but i'm not sure what it is. Has anyone had this problem? It feels like there is something on the inside scraping me on the inside right there lol. I get my staples out tomorrow (ya they used staples...not sure why they didn't use butterfly's) and i'm going to ask them about it. Anywho, can't wait to post my official loss :) So excited!!!

I'm not sure if they used staples on me, they went in through my belly button and that was my only incision. I guess i will find out later this week what all is in my belly button because it looks like it's tape in there or some glue. I was sleeved a day before you and I don't have any pain. I slept on my stomach last night. My incision is itching though. It seems like us sleevers are taking over lol

I had 5 small incisions and they put staples but idk lol. I think once they take the staples out I'll sleep on my stomach again lol. I was nervous I'd roll over on it cause I'm a side stomach sleeper. My incision's have been itching also lol. And ya we are!!

And Kate thanks!! I can't wait either!! One more day :) When is your surgery? Or are you waiting on a date?

I am still waiting for a date. Hoping for sometime before the year end, as hubby and I have met any and all possible insurance deductibles and co-pays.

Hopefully so! That way you don't have to redo everything with your insurance! That would stink! I hope you get it soon cause it'll be the best Christmas present ever :)
