I am 72 hours out from surgery---I made it!!! The first few days HURT! Not just "ow" kind of hurt just plain ole H-U-R-T!!!!!! Be prepared!
I had the I-Lap band. My stomach hurts from being folding and I was/am swollen. Bruised too....but this has really actually saved my life. It seems that I have a problem with my liver. Dr Bariatric took a biopsy to rule out cirrosis. I have NEVER drank alcohol in my life--I just don't understand! I do understand now why I was driven to have this done. A blessing in disguise. I am nervous. I will find out on the 23rd at my Post Op appointment.
How can this be if I have not and do not drink? I don't get it!
