I've been trying to get in here, but I had to get my daughter's help to start a new thread. I'd really like to hear from some of you. I had a GB two years ago. I quickly lost 90 pounds and stopped. I had to have hernia repair later on. I have a piece of mesh now. It has never felt right, even after a year and a half. It even hurts sometimes. Is that common? I gained 10 pounds last year at Christmas and have been battling with getting it off ever since. I'm scared to death of gaining all the weight back. I think I'd rather die!
