Revision complete

Recommended Posts

Had my revision of gastric bypass last night. I forgot how bad the initial pain is, but it’s much better this morning. This hospital is great and everyone is so caring. 

I feel very grateful to have this second chance and I will make the absolute most of it. The surgeon said he was going to do everything possible surgically to set me up for success. Can’t wait to feel like “me” again. Onwards and downwards :)

Congratulations on your revision.  Will you get to come home today or will they keep you a little longer because of the revision?

Corrine, likely staying one more night. My blood pressure is lower than they like. Otherwise I’m already up and walking.

Sorry you're having to stay one more night - I'm sure you're missing your family but good that your surgeon is airing on the side of caution.

You'll live longer, the lower your blood pressure. Congrats on re-do.

Hooray, that’s great news!  Sorry about the initial pain but it sounds like you’re doing great now if you’re up and walking around!

it sounds like you are totally back on the path to being where you want to be, I know that feeling well and for me it’s such a relief after the last year or so of drifting further and further from where I wanted to be.

let’s do this!

Congratulations on your revision, @GAviv!! I hope you’re still feeling well, and praying your BP has come up! Mine gets super low like yours, and I’ve stayed many an extra night in the hospital because of it. 

You’re going to do great!!

Thanks all. I’m home, was discharged early afternoon. Glad to be in my own bed tonight. Super sore and I forgot how bad gas hurts. Sipping on my fluids and taking it slow. Going to take some pain meds and try to sleep.

Hi BB, I'm doing well. Back to myself, and busy at work with quarterly earnings. I'm down almost down pounds - yesterday was 3 weeks, so hopefully that progress sticks. Just got cleared to start eating solids,so that is a nice change. Going back to basics, protein, no carbs, no sugar, and some veggies. Clean and easy. Meal prepped last night so I'm all set for a few days. My goal this time around is to bring my family along for the ride, and to start cooking healthier low carb options for everyone.
