I honestly felt the same way for the first two weeks.  Please just hang in there. When you aren't in pain anymore you will be more optimistic.  

I had a hard time sleeping too. I used lots of pillows to try to get comfortable to sleep

I gained 15 pounds in the hospital. It's because they pump you full of fluids. It does come off.  Give it another week. 

I had my RNY four weeks ago this Thursday. I'm just starting to see results. I've lost 25 pounds since surgery.

It will get better. Keep up with your meds, stay ahead of the pain. Heating pads on the back and shoulders help some. Sounds bad but some of the pain is from gas, its a fun thing for a little while. I gained almost 15 pounds while in the hospital, its normal, you will lose the weight as long as you follow your plan. Try drinking warm liquids, try chicken broth. I personally drank sugar free hot cocoa with protein added to it. basics-how-to-make-hot-protein-drink  Also as far as the scar, you can try Scar Away, it helps. scar away. Also I couldnt stand up right, for almost 2 weeks with out it hurting, and mine wasnt open.

Gas X strips and warm liquids, and walking every step you can. Even if its just around the kitchen for a few minutes at a time.

I gained 21 lbs during the first 5 days after surgery. It is water weight. Do not get frustrated. The weight will come off. The more protein you put in your body will help get it off. Make sure you drink plenty of water.

You'll get better, the weight will come off, and you'll do fine.

Stick with your program - you have water weight right now - don't worry.  Drink Drink Drink, stay on top of your protein anyway you can (I ate a lot of cottage cheese and yogurt!).

You can do it!  Have FAITH in the surgery - it works if you work it!

I felt the exact same way week one and 2 and everyone telling me "it will come off " made me want to punch something.  I did a search on the ton of folks who posted the exact same thing and I felt better.  3 months later ...what a difference.  Relax and get well...

I had my surgery on June 20th. On the 25th, I weighed myself for the first time. I was actually a pound heavier than on my surgery date! Now, 5 days later, I've started seeing the way come off...8 lbs.  It will happen!
