This is my first post after severl months reading posts from others...and it's been such a great help! I'm preparing for VSG surgery next Wednesday, Jan. 17th, and was wondering what surprised you...what happened that you didn't expect or anticipate in the weeks immediately following surgery?
I have a friend who recently had extensive back surgery --- which was very successful ---but she was not prepared for the pain, fatigue and expected recovery time. I've had four foot surgeries and understand about pain and recovery time, but was there something you wish you had known before this particular surgery?
I understand that everyone is different, yet I would appreciate hearing so I can be better mentally and emotionally prepared.
