I was a nervous wreck before my surgery..panic attacks, second guessing myself and all that jazz. You can even see some of my posts on here documents my anxiety about everything.
Had the surgery 5 days ago and everything went fine. There was pain but nothing unbearable. Not sure what your pain management will be but I was so out of it from the morphine, I dont even remember what happened between the time they knocked me out to the time I was waking up in my room 7 hours later.
I wish you well!

It’ll be fine—- over before you know it! Hardest part was the gas .
It’s an amazing journey that you’ll love.
Good luck and post when you’re able to post op!

No worries, you will be just fine! It's normal to get antsy, I definitely was. You will be jumping for joy and screaming "this is the best decision I've ever made"! I am in awe with my 3 week post OP results! 48pds down in just 3 weeks! Prayers and hugs!

Thank you all for the supportive words. I just had a salad for dinner. That'll it be the last real food for a while. I'll touch base tomorrow afternoon.

Surgery was Monday morning. Got home yesterday afternoon.

Post-op pain is manageable. The only intense pain is around an incision that was stapled into the muscle. Not having any trouble with swallowing. Started adding stool softener to liquids to avoid constipation.

All in all, I'm happy to be on the other side of surgery.
