Recommended Posts

I am a nervous wreck y'all I am terrified of the pain I will have. I've been waiting a year for this surgery and have 0 support from my family. Going to the hospital now I would love someone to talk to, bond with, be friends with. Good luck to everyone with their weight loss!!

Good luck you’ll do great... be sure to get up as soon as you can and start walking. I had my surgery in March 2018. Best decision ever.

actually, most (not all - but most) patients really don't experience much pain from this surgery. Just the gas pain.

I had mine on 5-20! Would love to be buddies! I had very little post op gas pain because I walked the halls for the 24
Hours I was inpatient. Nurses were my cheerleaders. Best of luck!
