After Bariatric Surgery

The Very Next Day - Post Surgical

They sat me up in a chair July 26, 2001

Surgery date : July 25, 2001
This is me, July 26, 2001 feeling pretty rough!


They get you up, the very first day after you are released from recovery. The hardest part is getting out of the bed. I managed to walk all the way down to the end of the hall, to the green chair. That is about 80 yards total, and Dr. Warnock wants you to try to walk about every hour.

Day two : I am able to walk without assistance of a walker. Still feeling kind of ruff, but its getting a little better! Chewing gum and sugar free hard candy have become my best friends.
