Well the day after my surgery I had major heartburn! From when my surgeon filled my stomach to make sure there were no leaks. Uggghh it was bad!!! My stomach wasn't even in any pain compared to it. Then after I was home a few day I got the "surgical pain" shooting pain in the left shoulder which has semi subsided. Soon as I get the nasty draining tube removed today, Yay!! But other than that I've felt great! I'm 8 days out from my surgery & I've lost 12lbs. already!!

I was in immense pain. My lung collapsed during surgery so could be part of it. When I got home I did not sleep in the bed for about a month. I had to sleep in a recliner. I had the open gastric bypass surgery. I have lost 126 lbs since June 2nd.

Just gas pains in my shoulder and neck.  No incisional pain at all, ever!
