Rny to ds done yesterday

on 12/31/17 4:21 am

i must say i was super excited to get my surgery date. The. Being told fo fast was not so exciting around the holidays. So surgery went well i hear. But when I woke up, i was in so much pain, it was as if i wwedygoing into labor. Now i have. High tolerance for pain, but this was different. I dont recall feeling anything after my rny. So the journey begins. I wll keep everyone updated with my progdessy. Just an fyi, i lost 12 pounds fasting. I was the hungriest, meanest, crankiest and upsetting person to be around. Kinda isolated myself so i wouldn't snap and be on the 5 o'clock news.

Today, i was released. Experiencing severe lower abdomen pain and gas pains that travel from stomach to back. I'll be glad when this part is over.

I hope your recovery is going well. I had DS surgery in Jan 2013. I am having a lot of pain and some problems. I need to find a very good doctor that can do a surgery called "Lengthening the common channel. My original doctor no longer accepts my insurance. Do you mind me asking who you doctor is and where he is located?
