My Surgery was on Oct 08, 2013..I can say that I think it couldn't have gone any smoother. The surgeon got me in early (9am), total time of the surgery was about 30 minutes. I woke up around 3 hours later. I didn't have alot of pain at all. I stayed in the hospital overnight for observation. I was released around 5 pm the day after surgery. The day after surgery I was up cleaning the house, cooked lunch and dinner for the family. I had no desire to eat what I was cooking. One week after surgery I had lost 20 lbs. I am currently 10 out from surgery and still feel good. I returned to work a week after surgery. Overall it has been a great experience so far..and I really cannot express enough thanks to my surgeon, Dr. Fedorik and to all the staff at Colorado Springs Surgical Associates.
