    Side Effects and Complications

    I've made the down payment to secure my OR date. Thank you both for your input/support. I am nervous about the surgery itself, but I think we are all that way before any procedure. I would like to hear from any others regarding their personal experiences with this procedure. I am having my surgery in Toronto on May 15th. Post-operatively, did anyone have any difficulties with driving or any other day to day activities?
  2. I'm in the process of scheduling myself for Mini Gastric Bypass for May 15th. I have read as much as I could find on the procedure and all the various side effects, but I'm very interested in hearing that information from people who have actually had the surgery, not a research article or summary of the procedure. Do people have trouble with acid reflux, how have you treated it and was it effective? Any ulcers or any other side effects? I'm not morbidly obese, but have been quite heavy my entire life. I'm 50 years old, and have finally decided to do something for myself. However, I'm having second thoughts and would appreciate input from anyone about any unpleasant side effects.
