    Hi my name is Zoe and my surgery date was 7/6/2017. I'm feeling very well, except for rib cage air pockets that come and go. So far so good on everything.

    Congratulations!! I am two months post-op and doing good. I am still learning what I can eat etc, when I was allowed regular food you have to take it slow and gradually add foods. It wasn't as easy as I thought but it sure has helped with the weight loss.

    Welcome to your new life. Hopefully you will enjoy it as much as I have. Those gas bubbles do suck. Walking helps break them up.

    Congratulations as well. It's been a week now and I'm down 10 pounds. My issues won't be the food, I'm struggling with my meds and vitamins.

    The journey has just begun and I'm truly blessed to have been afforded the opportunity to choose the surgery.
