    December 2013 Sleevers Come In!

    Well friends, I was sleeved yesterday. I also had a hiatel hernia repaired. The hernia surgery site is more tender than the sleeve sites. I don't have too much pain except, like most have said, the gas pains are painful as heck. Took the gas X strips but for me, they don't help much.walking doesn't seem to be ring much relief yet either, but other than the gas pain, the surgery went great! i thought the pain would be a lot worse than it really is. Surgeon says I should be able to go home tomorrow. Thanks to everyone for sharing their experiences with us. It helped me tremendously. Best of luck and brightest blessings to all December sleepers.
