I am sitting here 10 day post op. It was a hard road to get here. Days 1-4 were awful. I hurt so bad. I didn't want to do much of anything. Getting up and down was very painful. I stayed heavily medicated on Dimarol (sp) and still hurt. Day 5--7 things started getting a little better. Day 8 I tried returning to work but was only able to make it half a day. Day 9 only worked half a day again. Day 10 today I am sitting at a restaurant typing this. Today is the first day I have felt like getting out. Actually put on a pair of jeans today. I have been out about an hour and starting to hurt some. Going to finish my meal and go home.
I would do it all over again. I expected the pain and expected to be uncomfortable for a period of time. I still have a long road ahead of me. It has made such a difference in the appearance of my body. I am extremely happy. I am posting a before and after below. The before pictures are not immediately before but rather near the beginning of my weight loss journey.
