    Hi all!

    Thank you all for your kind words and support!

    I am so sorry I had not replied sooner..... I hadn't because.... I managed to lose a total of 12lbs in the end on the hospital scales! And my op happened Tuesday morning!

    Tuesday was a complete right off for me; I was totally zonked the whole day. My fiancé sat with me most of Tuesday afternoon and evening even though I was asleep ! So I didn't even talk to him lol .he was as just sat with me the whole to me!

    Wednesday was a better day; I was more human and awake! Then is when I saw the dent on my left wisi of my abdomen and the incision marks. I found it very difficult to drink (although I was thirsty) because I had so much trapped gas. (tmi lol)

    Thursday I went a little down hill and had to stay in another night .I just didn't feel right and felt quite poorly.

    I went home on Friday and as I was living moving a lot more, I have had such little trapped gas pain but I can now feel my left side aching .

    But, it is quite a major operation so I would feel it lol.

    I only had water Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday and finally felt a little hungry on Friday. So I've been having sips of thin soup and sips of juice and low calorie hot chocolate. I can finally release gas a little more easier now too which inowbhave very little gas pain.

    Every now and again I get a little comfortable when I'm sat down or walking slowly and would suddenly move quickly and irritate my left side, but that's because I'm not thinking what imI doing!

    I was on tablet form of medication immediately which I struggled with and sonetines still do now. I had asked for liquid form and they said I needed to get used to tablets.... So I have to break them up very finely so I can swallow it.

    I think the worst pain for me was when I was in hospital and had the teapepd gas pain. I really really struggled with that.

    But now imn feeling okay. Still the usual aches and soreness. And now I am feeling hungry it's nice to have a few tablespoons of soup or hot chocolate throughout the day

    Will keep you all updated!

    Thanks all for being so supportive xx

    So pleased for you you are a loser now!!!!
    I love hearing about how people are after their operation. Everyone is so different and it makes me wonder how I will be.
    Keep sipping, sleeping walking & you will get through it all.
    So jealous you have made it to the losers bench. Just remember to leave room for us soon to be losers
    Happy sipping x

    Thank you all forvbeung so kibdvshd supportive

    I am now on foods like mashed baked beans and sctamblsc egg which is just devine! (I was not particularly fond of scrambled egg prior surgery. I can make Bolognese (without pasta) and cottage pie if they are pureed, which I am excited to start making! Please can you give me some food ideas on what I could possibly have? The dieticians have said pureed/ very mashed (no lumps) food and I'm strugglin for other ideas

    So everything is going really well! 14 days sincw my gastic sleeve and I've lost 15 1/2 lbs.

    Only issue I have is difficulty with toileting (sorry TMI) which after a lot of tears I have powder for (time being)

    How is everyone getting on on their journey? Xx

    Hiya @Irene44

    Yeah I'm fine thank you .I'm now on mashed/soft foods so I'm pleased about that. (wasn't a fan of purées)

    I'm making sure I'm walking around but think I've overdone it as now my side really hurts like it did when I was in hospital, so I'm trying to take it easy. Like muscle pain where my 'dent' is when I move and breathe deeply

    How is everything going with you?

    How is everyone else doing?

    Xx
