I went back to work in 12 days and my daughter went back in 9. She works at Dorney and does ALOT of walking. She has not had any issues. I myself have had none. Remember to keep water with you at all times. A positive attitude means alot.

FarmerMom, I did have some issues and was not able to go back for quite some time BUT that is my body and how it reacts to surgery.  I would have had the same issue had I had my tonsils taken out Smile

Both of my co-workers had gastric bypass done and were back within a weeks time, they had absolutely no issues what so ever and are both 1 year out (well 1 is one month shy) and they are doing great!!!

I agree with Dena, a positive attitude is key, and drinking loads of water, keep sipping and keep a water bottle with you wherever you go.  Good luck, you will do just fine!!

I did not have liquid pain meds.  I broke them up in tiny pieces (6 I believe)

Farmermom, Wishing you a successful surgery in August.  Being anxious is normal.  Things will be okay.

You are going to feel so much better. Maybe not right away but I promise you are going yo be great. Had my surgery 6/5 and lost over 60 pounds. Went from a 3x to an large/extra large. Best choice I've ever been given was to have the gastric bypass.

Good luck! Remember to stay attending your meetings they will become a backbone for success.

The first few days may be a little painful, but each day is better than the previous during the recovery time.  Remember to sip and walk.
