Day 3 Post Op Sleeve to RnY
Day 2 was bad for me - anxiety, nausea, dizziness, throwing up dark blood, and the upper GI swallow test. I forced myself to walk and to use that breathing gadget. I was discharged day 3. Day 3 was much better - nausea is gone, I'm walking around the house, and sipping.
i didn't have these issues with the sleeve. Surgeon said I had a lot of scar tissue. I didn't ask how much or whether this caused complications because I was too sick to care. I'll ask at follow up.
just keeping those who want to know informed.

I have this idea in my head that I have somehow minimised any post op fears and angst from the first time (probably a bad analogy but maybe like new mums who forget the pain of natural child birth very quickly). So because we have this pre-conceived idea that it was potentially smoother sailing than it was, it makes everything seem worse the second time?
I am quite nervous about my revision.
You sound like things have moved in the right direction though. I would think the scarring would be expected?
Hope things just keep getting better for you
