Day 2 sleeved and I am home !!! YAY

Hi All ,

I came home this afternoon after a 2 night stay.

The hospital staff were fantastic and very supportive, each day I got an apple juice 100mls and a up&go for all 3 meals. I had a lovely room looking right at the city all to my self. My doc came in both days to see how I was.

Friday I was still finding my feet had bouts of feeling sick and odd cramping. I slept well last night though and was awake at 5am feeling really good !!! By 830am I was up hair washed, blow dried and straightened make up on sitting on a freshly made bed, just hanging around. Well actually I was shopping up a storm on my ipad ops...

So my doc came in about 11am and said wow you look good do you want to go home ?? 
Yes please was my response!! 

So I got home about 230pm with panadol, pariet, buscopan and maxalon. I met a great dietician she was amazing have all the info in my little book now and will just see how we go from now on in.

So nice to be home, I am tired but pain is much less then when I had my band in and out! Infact I have no pain just mild tummy cramps every now and again.

I feel so relieved that its done I am sleeved on the other side and haven't faired too badly, so far. 

The best part I literally just remembered ... I may actually loose some weight from this whoo hoo it kinda got forgotten in all the worry and stress of the procedure and recovery! 

Onward and upward we go xox

I have had issues with the band and am thinking about getting either the sleeve or bypass. Wanted to check in to see how you are doing with the sleeve and is it something you would suggest. Any feedback you have would be appreciated.
