Good evening all,

I went nto surgery at 9:30AM yesterday..By noon, I was up walking and went to due my swallow (barium) test. All went well.

I knew what to expect, by ready all others posts. I sipped and sipped. The worst pain was the gas pain in my chest and shoulder. The more

I walked, the better it was. I came home around noon today. I cld not walk outdoors because of the high wind and rain, so I walked every room and hallway. The steps still hurt a little. I am so excited to be starting the "NEW" life. I want to thank everyone on this site for your help. You where

right on. It helped with everything. Good luck to all the people being banded soon...

Again, Thanks to everyone,

Daron

Congratulations fellow bandster! Sounds like you're doing all the right stuff.

Take it easy, even though you feel pretty good, it was still major surgery.

I'm 2 days out, doing just what you did. Walk as much as I can! All in all, it's not as bad as I thought it would be! I'm so excited to see the future & what it will bring!

      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.
