Hi People As I've mentioned in my previous posts, I was a former bandit and have just taken the plunge with a sleeve. My surgery was on Monday 24 April 2017 and I was discharged today 27 April to recover at home. You can read about my concerns surrounding >> Anti Depressents during Nil By Mouth I had some teething problems immediately after surgery related to my anti-depressant medication and abdominal pain. You can read about my pre-op concerns at Anti Depressents during Nil By Mouth. I was able to take my medication on the morning of surgery, but had to skip all of the next day and most of the day after that due to delays in getting the results from the swallow test. The lack of medication resulted in increase nausea and a loss of balance resulting in me falling over whenever I tried to go for a walk in the ward. Due to the lack of post-surgical exercise, I was having pretty bad back and shoulder pain when coupled with my surgical abdominal pain became overwhelming and too much for me. I didn't sleep for the the first 2 nights in hospital and by the end of it was an emotional mess. My surgeon happened to turn up in the middle of this "episode" and was concerned at the high level of abdominal pain I was getting. He then asked the nurse to partially pull out my drain which she did resulting in my pain levels going from a 9/10 down to a 2/10 instantly. It appears the drain was pressing against my diaphragm and nerve ending in the area resulting in pain. Not common, but can happen in some individuals. Anyway, im going to go and cradle 200ml of pumpkin soup and try and learn what my new stomach is telling me
