Only a little on my right side. I've taken only Tylenol. I guess I'm on of the lucky ones. I do need to make sure I'm all straight and ligned up before I drink anything though.

I feel the same way! I feel normal again like it never happened. I thought my insides would feel a bit different but they don't

You two are truly lucky. I'm not in intense pain but I'm in pain and it feels like something was pulled out of me in the right side. Still adjusting to everything. Trying to get the fluids in which is hard and the Protein yea I'm lucky if I get in 10 grams a day.

I don't have any regrets. I thought long and hard about my decision and im in it for the long haul. No one said it was going to be easy. Thanks for all the support my VST family:)

One thing I've noticed is that I really do need to be sitting up very straight, or at times kind of lean back when drinking. I realize now how badly I slouch right were my esophagus meets my stomach. The right wound where they took out my stomach hurts more if I don't stay on top of the Tylenol. (which is really wierd, because I never thought Tylenol worked at all). Don't let yourself get dehydrated! You WILL get through this!!!!! You were tough enough to have this done, you can certainly handle these bumps/ mountains in the road. Keep us posted. We're here for you.

      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.
