Newly sleeved

I was Sleeved on Thursday, June 17. I’d like to say that afterwards, it was easy. But it wasn’t. I woke up in a type of pain that can’t really be described. I was crying in recovery because it was so bad. I spent most of that day sleeping or crying out in pain. I took only one walk. And it was short.

Yesterday was a little better. The pain was still there, just not as bad. I started having chest pains so they did an x-ray. That came back normal so the doctor thinks it’s just trapped air. I walked quite a bit more, but really struggled with keeping anything down. I finally threw up, and haven’t felt as bad since I did.

Today, the incision above my belly button swelled up. It’s pretty big. The doctor thinks it’s just a little bleeding from the surgery. The bruising is pretty gnarly.

I’m able to keep a lot down finally, and since I’m walking as well, the doctor discharged me today. That was the best news ever. It’s tough not being home with my kids. And since my husband is home from work, I felt like I was missing out on time with him.

I am so grateful to everyone who has reached out to offer love, support, and prayers. This transition is definitely more difficult that I thought it would be. But our support system has really come through.

Hopefully things will only get better from here.

My name is Jessica Wolfe. I am the wife of an incredible man and father. He and I have been together longer than we have been apart. We have two sons, one is 18 and a freshman at Indiana State University majoring in Music Education. Our 13 year old son is in the 7th grade and is being home schooled. My vertical sleeve gastrectomy surgery was on June 16, 2016. My total gastrectomy was March 3, 2017. I’ve recently found out I have a fairly large benign tumor in my brain. I also have something going on in my lower spine between my L5 and S1. It seems as though surgery is imminent. Through this blog, I share my life with you and am brutally honest with myself so that when I do look back, I can see what it was that made me make the decisions I did. I also welcome opinions and questions as it challenges my thoughts and helps me grow from where I am. If you want to check me out anywhere else, please do!
