Day 3 and 4

Wow, so it's already about time to go home! Wanted to share my videos from Day 3 and 4. Here's a quick scoop on what's been going down:

  • Day after surgery sucks. Sounds like it's the typical sh*t day. I was feeling lame, and just wanted to sleep, when really I should have been walking around. I got to drink liquids. Apple juice, gatorade, and tea to be specific. But on the upside, got my IV out :)
  • By Day 3 I was feeling good! Actually booted up my computer and got some work done. No issues being up and walking around. Felt way better after they took my drain out too. Did a leak test, and actually watched the liquid go down live on a screen, which was crazy! I got a souvenir pic to take home, lol
  • Day 4 and it is time to go home. Glad I didn't carry much, since it was a bit tiring. Developed a crummy rash, which is super-annoying, but I'll deal with it when I get home. Drank juice on the way to the airport, and then drank a protein shot when I got there. Made the video below. And like 3 mins later had to run to the bathroom since it ran right through me. Lovely. Hoping that's not a trend!
Enjoy. Gastricsleeve4me

  1. I know you posted this forever ago - But curious how soon you went back to work after surgery? I work in cosmetics retail as a store manager and I am just wondering how long I should tell them I would be out of work.
