    We have the same surgery date!! It's almost here!! Best of luck to all of us 4/17'ers!
  6. It went good! Had alot of nausea and pain the first 2 days then i was just sore, i had my lapband removed at the same time and i think it caused the extra pain from old scar tissue! I have lost almost 25 lbs in 3 weeks and just my larger incision is still sore! I am not getting all my protein i should been very gaggy w all protein stuff so im tryin to find some different options! After i upped my b12 intake i have had more energy!
