Nervous is normal. Just sip and walk when you can once you are home. Congrats on your surgery!

Good luck! You will probably be pretty sleepy at first. I wasn't terribly sore the first 12-ish hours but once I woke up the morning after surgery I was pretty sore. It basically feels like you've done a LOT of sit-ups...but I don't say this to make you more nervous! Just make sure you keep moving and drinking Water :)

Know that the first couple days you may feel not 100%. Mainly because your insides have been knocked around some. it is normal. Achy and tired are normal.

Sip as much as you can. Remember sf popsicles count for sipping to.

And you may have a sore throat from the tube. Normal.

But it is sooooooooo worth a coupke days of just not yourself, because the next thing you know you feel better than your old self!!!

My surgery was 12/17. I'm down 25lbs.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
