    I'm glad I'm not the only one. I wake up on my stomach every morning, it's not painful for me. Hope the blackmores pills work for u Kylie, the only other thing that works for me is "picoprep", it really cleans me out.

    Hey Kylie, I've been using "Blackmore Peritone", it works really well. Has anyone had any bruising just below their port? My Doctor said it was unusual but didn't seem worried about it. I think it may have been because I was sleeping on my side hugging a pillow since I came out of surgery, it was the only way I could sleep tho. It's not painful anymore which is good. Anyway, hope every's going well. This forum has been so great for me

    Day 5 of recovery. No more shoulder pain and have reduced my painkillers to only night time. Still hurts to cough, sneeze and laugh. Went back to work on Day 3 which wasn't that bad. Slept really well that night tho and each day's getting easier. Even used a treadmill for half hour yesterday! Get to take my bandages off tomorrow and all my bruises are slowly disappearing. I can't believe how many needles they stuck in me while I was under! Just wanted to say congratulations to everyone that's been banded so far this month and hope you're all recovering well. Also, goodluck to all that's yet to be banded! It's well worth the discomfort.

    Age

    I'm 25, spent the last 10 years being overweight despite daily exercise and healthy eating. Sick of being constantly hungry and tired. Got banded yesterday, just waiting for the doc to give me the all clear to go home and start my new life!

    Hi all, I went under yesterday @ 9:30 and woke up in tears a few hours later. I always seem to do that when I come out of the anesthetic, i was also sitting upright and it felt like I was pushing down on my stomach which hurt a lot. I slept a lot during the day, felt better once I convinced the nurses to adjust my bed. My back does not like the weird angle I was in. After my first SIP of water I broke out into a massive sweat and felt like vomitting. So I stopped and left the drip to hydrate me. About 3hrs after that I swallowed some liquid panadol and a morhine tablet without any bad reactions. I've managed to drink the chicken broth and applejuice the nurses gave me. Can't wait to get home.
