I have multiple sclerosis and A-fib and obesity related health issues.
I am starting at 260 and am 5'6"
I am definitely in the regret stage already. The reason is that I read everywhere where the pain isn't too bad since it is laparoscopic.
I have had incredible pain that I cannot get rid of. I expected to be sore but standing and walking feels like ripping and tearing at my stomach. I know my pain threshold will be lower due to my MS. I had to spend an extra night in the hospital so they could control my pain.
I always feel hungry too. I am still on clear liquids. I am being careful what I eat. I think I get something close to stomach cramps if I drink too much too fast. But I do not do over 4oz. Sipping on water all day and walking as much as possible.
I am also not sleeping well because of the pain so I am tired.
Everyone I've spoken too who has had this procedure does not regret it. I just want to get past the pain and cramps.
At this point I feel like I am an idiot for doing this. I did this to myself. I may feel differently in a month and be so happy I did this. But right now I just feel so miserable.
Anyone on here who has MS? I have primary progressive and I know most people have relapsing/remitting. But I am curious if other MS-ers have had a similar experience to mine.
Thanks for letting me vent.
