It finally happened! I went into surgery Wednesday afternoon and came out with a nice little lapband! A couple of complications - had a pretty good-sized hiatal hernia which the doc needed to repair, and he took out my gallbladder as well. Needless to say my belly is sore, but am starting to feel slowly better. Had so much GAS - whew!! Doc said that gas is to be expected with this surgery - I even felt it in my shoulder of all places (referred pain, he said). For 2 weeks I can have all the liquids and semi-liquids (like yogurt) that I want until there's been some good healing in there. But no coffee yet Can't believe that the only time I was hungry was the morning after surgery - famished!! Since then, not so much. Hopefully in a few days I'll feel more normal and less weirded-out, LOL! Love, Carol
