Day 2- post op

Today was better than yesterday.  I mostly just have pain when I move.  So if I'm just laying there, I'm pain free.  Except for when my stomach growls.  It doesn't hurt hurt, just a little weird.  Also, when it does that, I can feel tiny little air bubbles come up my throat.  It kind of reminds me of pop rocks or something lol.  I've been keeping up on my pain meds pretty good to stay comfortable.  I've been walking around the house every few hours too.  My shoulders don't hurt like I've heard they would, I think all the gas is just in my gut and not going anywhere.  I've almost thrown up twice today.  Oh so close.  I got pale and clammy  but luckily the feeling when away.  I think it's because of the pain meds on top of a mostly empty tummy.  I've had a few protein shakes and a few liquid yogurt things.  They're called DanActive.  My pee problem has resolved itself so thats good.  I've just been sleeping a lot.  Tomorrow is shower day, I've got tape goo all over my arm from the IV's.  I just didn't feel up to showering today.  Sorry about my randomness squashed all in one paragraph, my mind is in a bit of a haze.  Talk to you tomorrow.

I'm glad you are feeling a little better Ashli. I guess each day will be a little better than the last.

I am having surgery 1 week from today.

That shower is going to feel good! Sounds like everything went well (walking the dog? really?). Congratulations Bander! Keep staying ahead with those pain meds. Day 4 was my turning point, hope yours comes soon! Keep on sipping :-) BG

So glad you are feeling better and the shower will make you a new person! Loved the pop rocks analogy. Last night the same thing was happening to me for about 2 hours but only if I lay on my left side. Funny feeling isn't it. I think it is the air coming up from the lower stomach though the new band opening.

I still have that pop rocks feeling sometimes.

I didn't have shoulder pain until amost a week after surgery. I think it was five days and it hurt but it was an achey hurt so it wasn't too bad.

Everyday you will feel better! I'm glad you're still posting to let us know how you're doing. I agree that once you shower I bet you will feel so much better. It was like that after I had my kids, a shower makes it better for some reason.

So glad you're doing good. Hope the gas pain remains a 'Non' issue for you.

you'll get through it, I swear! If I can, anyone can. I'm a total wimp. Come day 4 I felt like a new person. Just take it easy and sleep as much as possible.
