  1. I had a DS in October of 2015 and I've lost 230 pounds. As a result, I have quite a bit of loose skin on my abdomen. My insurance approved a Panniculectomy after rash documentation. I'm scheduled for surgery on June 3rd. I guess during my DS my xhyphoid bone was damaged and has grown to be 17cm long and needs to be removed. Also I have a hernia along my incision that needs to be repaired at the same time. I am having a lot of anxiety about these surgeries and am curious about what to expect after. If you have any info for me I would greatly appreciate it, thank you.
