I can't tell you how many times I've heard of people getting lapband surgery and having a hiatal hernia and/or gallbladder removed...its not unusual... iI'm so glad your home and relaxing.
No coffee?? its so strange how each doctor is different... Thats the first thing they gave me after surgery with skim milk (well the next day really). I really wanted a cheeseburger but you know how that goes.
I was on 2 weeks clear liquids, third week thicker liquids, 4th week was mushies and finally 5th week regular food.
Gas ohhh yeah I remember that quite well. I slept in the recliner for a week and walked around my house as much as I could. Ask your doctor but I'm sure your able to take Gas-X.
Good luck and welcome home
