I had my lap band surgery on June 13 and it went amazingly well. When I woke up in the PACU I thought for some reason they hadn't been able to place the band because nothing hurt! Anywhere! I started feeling around for bandages and the nurse saw me and asked what was wrong and laughed when I told her, and she confirmed that I had gotten a band.

An hour later after I got to my room I asked to get up and pee, so the nurse unhooked me, and since I was up already I went ahead and started walking laps. Then I went back to bed and slept some. I had to go to Xray to get the swallowing test, and I wanted to walk back to my room. The assistant that was with me tried to say, "no, you have to ride in the wheelchair", but I told her I was supposed to be walking, so couldn't I walk now? So she agreed, and walked back with me. So until three in the morning I had the same routine--pee, walk and sleep about two hours. Here's the warning part--at three am I thought I had to fart so I cut loose--and it wasn't just gas!!:cursing: Omigod what a mess! In ALL the reading I've done about my surgery NO ONE has mentioned this!!! I don't remember sharting as being a possibility!! So forgive me for being crude, but I feel it's my civic duty to warn y'all!!!!

lol omg it's very normal for people to have the runs after a surgery, reaction to the anestesia or any of the IV's or just all the liquid in you from all the IV's. Thanks for the warning though

I am sitting here at work reading the WARNING message and nearly fell out of my chair. I am sorry this happened, but not uncommon. I am sure you aren't the only one this has happened to, but you were probably the only one that had the courage to put your experience out there for all of us. Thanks so much for the warning.

Gosh, how embarrassing! Sorry, but I laughed my *ss off while reading your post. If I EVER get to my lap band surgery I will keep your post in mind. If I get the surgery and I feel gassy I will be sure to go sit on the pot and blast off in the bathroom. Lisa:tt2:
