I got sleeved 7/19/16. I got to come home today.I woke up from surgery in alot of pain. I also had issues breathing, which I always do after surgery. I'm very sore and hurt all over, I'm sure some of it is my fibromyalgia acting up. I am struggling with getting all my fluids in. I feel full after a few sips :( the nurse and doc said that it will get better once the swelling goes down. I just don't want to mess anything up or become non successful. Im excited about this new journey! I've been walking around the house as much as I can. Tomorrow I'll walk outside some. I have lost 5 lbs so far but I'm sure it's jus****er weight. The doc has take me off half of my medications that I was on pre surgery! I'm excited about that. I'm looking forward to feeling better and joining the losers club!

Yayyyyy for you.....the best thing for you to do is sip, sip and sip again.  Walk and sip, follow your Dr's plan for you and you will do great.  Once the swelling does go down it will get better.  Just let it happen don't force anything.  Sip lots of small amounts, don't forget your protein shakes to get that protein.  It will get better,  the pain will go away,  you'll get stronger, you'll be less tired, you start to feel more energy and you'll just start feeling like a new person and you'll be ready to take on the world.  Take all your measurements and track them along with the scale because that is just as exciting to watch those numbers shrink too.  

Welcome to the best group of LOSERS around.

Congrats love!!! I had my surgery a week ago today and I can tell you firsthand, IT GETS BETTER! When I first came home, I was in a lot of pain. Now I am able to walk around comfortably for a good while and even go grocery shopping. Just stick to your guns and know you'll feel better soon!
