What should I expect from week 1 of my post op from RNY?


Answer by  Jalaine11 (2043)

There are several things to expect during your first week of RNY surgery. First you will only be allowed a fluid diet. You may experience gas pain and after consulting with your doctor you should be able to take over the counter medication for relief. Usually you will have a post op doctors appointment to have your incisions examined.

Staples will be removed. You should be able to go back to work in a couple days. Any pain you had should be subsiding or be completely gone by now

You will still be very sore. You need to get plenty of rest and start very slowly with a bit of water and then some soft foods.

Hair loss and thinning is experienced, but once weight stabilizes and intake of protein is more, hair grows back. Food can be taken in small quantities only. Change in bowel habits, lactose intolerance, gallstone formation, excess skin in all places are some of the risks after surgery.
