Tomorrow is the day.

The time has come and tomorrow is the big day. I’m not gonna lie I am nervous. I am not so much worried about the procedure as I am about the pain after. I am also having a hiatal hernia repairs at the same time.

although pain is all across the board, a majority of us have little to no pain with WLS. I'm not sure how the hiatal hernia would affect that, though, since I didn't have one of those, fortunately..

I also had to have a hiatal hernia repair. I had a band removed and RNY also. Other than some discomfort in my shoulder, the pain wasn't bad at all. As soon as you can, get up and start walking to help alleviate it. Don't be shy about requesting pain medicine also, as long as you stay on top of the pain it will be minimal. If you try to "tough it out", it's harder to get rid of pain than it is to prevent it.

Good luck, you got this! See you on the other side!
