    Good Luck - You will do fine. I had surgery (Lapband) on the 30th and I am doing okay. Your support group will help you alot. I buy my protein shakes at Costco. They are great. Just take things easy. You will be tired, at least I was for awhile. My stomach is still bruised and sore, especially my belly button. You are having a different type so I am sure it will be a little different - good luck.

    Hi Bobbi, Glad to hear everything went well, it is great not being hungry anymore isn't it:D. In the hospital they gave machine with a button to push for the first 24 hours then I was on liquid pain meds for about a week and that really helped me, I only had pain when I coughed or laughed but that went away slowly. :cool: Tom

    Thanks

    Thanks for all the concern and and good wishes. I am having a hard time with the water. I must have gulp and I had a guess an air bubble in my chest for a long time. I need to stay focused, all of a sudden I realized I had a straw in my month. Am I really never going to have a diet pepsi for the rest of my life? Hanging in there in Las Vegas
