Lily,
I was discharged from hospital on Saturday after my gastric bypass operation on Thursday 24th March. My op was a day after Ganny’s. I too was nervous about the anticipated pain levels but I couldn’t have been more wrong. After surgery, I waqs wheeled into post op recovery where I was woken up. I had a dedicated nurse wo stayed with me throughout the time I was in there. She checked my perception of my pain level and admininstered morphine until it was right down to 1 or 2 out of 10. During the op they administer local anaesthetic as well as the general and IV Paracetamol and diclofenac. I didn’t need any more pain relief until during the night when a small dose of morphine was administered. After that I had diclofenac and paracetamol and that kept the pain at bay. I was up walking about the next day, and soon eating pureed food in veryvery small quantities. They next day I was discharged and had a 2-3 hour journey home. I’ve been feeling great I can’t believe how little pain I’ve had and How well I feel. My advice is, be positive, the team are so experienced and have got your care sorted. Don’t be a martyr to pain, accept the pain relief offered and follow their advice. My pain experince was 1/10. The bariatric team get 10/10 for being excellent. Don’t worry. Good luck.
