Surgery was last Thursday. Docs say everything went textbook (VSG) and I noticed one thing when they started feeding me jello and broth after my scan was clear:
Burp, burp, burp, burp, burp OMG burp. It's was like it would never end, but it did finally slow down after day 3 or 4. Take a tsp, wait 10 minutes while burping 40 times, then another. By the time I left it was 2 tsp and less gas. Sound about right?
One thing I've noticed coming home, I've been trying to drink Powerade Zero, but it feels like I'm bloated all the time no matter how small I sip. Does that sound right?
Biggest issues I had were the gas and my legs were very sore and I couldn't bend them for almost 4 days, but it finally went away and is just barely sore now. But it amazes me it takes an hour to drink 8 ozs. I know that will change but holy crap, Batman. They said my stomach was the size of a male ring finger.
Other than that, feeling tired and drained, all seems to be well.
