I was sleeved on Nov.3 and since I went outside the operation room till almost now I am in a state of shock of the pain!
in the hospital they gave me pain killers but it looks like that everyone is different and I obviously needed more that what they are offering and still cant understand why they were very slow, it took them more than 3 hours after operation till they could gave me pethidine injection and put me to sleep, I was exhausted and so much in pain and felt that I didn't sleep or rest enough when the pain all started again after one hour!
Anyways I am trying to forget now...but I really need some help from you my friends:
today is my 4th day after surgery and I think that I have the dumping syndrome, my stomach feels very heavy and am living on water and apple juice as well as a liquid of some law fat yogurt mixed with water
When will I stop feeling the heaviness in my stomach? I mean when will I be able to leave bed feeling normal again without holding my tummy with my hands and pressing hard on it?!
what should I do regarding the dumping syndrome?
I am very exhausted, tiered and sad and would love to cry but I just cant, did any of you faced this?
Yes I have been giving a prescription for pain meds and they are working just fine, i guess i am rather disappointed at myself for being so weak. and I am really thinking a lot and don't know how would I manage it to fly back home with my 2 boys a lone, what if i had a light headed? my youngest ( 2 years ) is very very active and we are flying in at 10 am for 14 hours!
Thanks for your reply
Dr. M. Alkubaisy the assisstant of Dr. Abdulsallam Altai told me I can consume it .
I am happy to find someone who tried my surgeon even before me.

I think that you need to tell them your pain is still really bad, they can and should have sent you home with some med. As for the heavy feeling, your body is trying to recover give it a week or so everyone is different. Your going to be exhausted as your body is healing. Sip, Sip, Sip and try some SF pops. I wouldn't do to much juice after you get home its empty calories and you need protein to heal and give you some energy! Good Luck hang in there...
Try switching the yogurt out for chicken broth or something clear. Most ppl have some intolerance to lactose for the first while. The swelling made me feel so bloated and heavy in the stomach and I was uncomfortable for about 2 weeks then woke up one morning and thought hey I feel pretty darn good.
Use ibuprofen if you arent already.
