  1. no I had no problems what so ever after surgery. only a couple doses of pain meds in the hospital, nothing after I was home. took it slow on intake and just did what I could handle. good to hear you are doing so well.

    Bariatric Bros, Where You At?

    best decision I ever made was the VSG , had it done 4-22-2015. I went home the next morning, doing the sips of water all the way. easiest recovery ever, only needed two doses of oxy at the hospital , only Tylenol since then. I started at 401 lbs. as of today broke the 100 lb. mark now officially 102 down. feel great , walk 5-6 miles a day. keeping up with my 15 year old son now , this has brought us even closer now. bought a dirt bike and we go riding in the mountains together. good luck in your journey. just remember follow the program all the way and it will be much easier for you.
  6. Started at 401 lbs., 4 months after my sleeve down 96 lbs. best choice I ever made. I am very luck as I have had no problems with nausea or vomiting, now eat anything I want with no problems. went with the sleeve because of the malabsorption issues with the by-pass. more energy than I know what to do with.
