Hello everyone , am 3rd day out. Feeling fairly well, all went well and I've really not had severe pain at all. Surgery was very tolerable, lost weight gained from swelling and I'V fluids. Having trouble taking protein drinks and vitamins , get the big D. That is something I must work on. But for all the pre ops , relax it is really not that bad at all. Now I look forward to phase Ii of this life long change.
