    I'm also a 5/14 postoperative and I'm not having many problems, no pain killers at home and no nausea . I do notice some lightheadedness and find I'm not drinking enough liquids. Once I do, it goes away. I found small sips of water, or whatever, but frequent work best so you don't feel it going down as much.

    I tried some mashed potatoes, yogurts and oatmeal and haven't had any issues. Tried soft scrambled eggs this morning and they seemed dry and it didnt feel right so I won't try them again for sometime. I have some soreness around my incision sites but it's to be expected.

    Postoperative in hops was way worse than I expected but once I said no to pain meds and got moving around I was sooo much better. Good luck to you and keep in touch.
  2. Thank you ALL for all of the sweet messages, and well wishes ... I am 4 days post surgery am still in pain, UGH ! The main area that is giving me fits is the area where he removed my stomach, also something I am trying to get used to is the stomach doing what it does, even if I just take a sip of water, it is like there are a 1000 energizer bunnies running around trying to handle whatever comes down. Each day gets better, But that one area is killing me. But in the end this is going to so worth if.... Anyone else have these issues?

Sleeved or not sleeved:
I have had a gastric sleeve.
I am 45 years old woman with a 25 year olds thrill for life, but my body makes me feel more like i am 75 ;) .... I was never an overweight girl growing up, actually i was pretty durn cute, but then life hit me as it does everyone, I got married got pregnant and then I got a visitor named Mr. Gut and then he invited his friends hips, arms and cousin thighs to move aboard as well. Well needless to say I am am a nice sized gal now, In hunters terms I would dress out to be about a good 280 lb. , good eatin; size if you must know. But through all of the depression, self esteem issues, aggravation from clothes shopping, people asking when my baby was due and all of the stereotypical crap that comes along with being overweight, i never lost my sense humor, that is the last thing I want to lose in my situation. I have worked all of my life, until 3 years ago and that is because my knees got worse, I will have to have 2 total knee replacements, My fibromyalgia was killing me and dragging me down bad. If anyone knows or suffers with depression, anxiety or bipolar, heck they seem to be my best friends because they never seem to want to leave ;) ..... Then I heard about the gastric sleeve, and I have studied about this procedure and compared it to the bypass and the lap band, and I knew this was for me.... So I talked to my sister who is VERY diabetic and asked her if she wanted to do this journey with me, and guess what, we are in the process of going through all of the steps now and hope to have our surgery in March or the first part of April 2013. I am very excited and hope that I can look as fabulous as I claim to be.
Grandchildren, going muddin' with family, laughing, just being with my family !

My name is Kim, I am a 45 year old woman that is so ready to have my second chance at having a life, but in the same sense I cant seem to find a protein drink that I can stomach. I am just now in the beginning stages of my surgery. I have had a consult and I have attended the nutrition class, I go for my psych evaluation on march 19th ( soonest I could get it) , and then I should get my surgery date. I was told that I have to do the protein shakes for 14 days BEFORE my surgery, most doctors are
