My surgery is tomorrow at St. Joe's Hamilton (Charlton Campus). I'm excited but also shocked that it is actually here.
Wishing you the very best with your surgery.

Thank you, my surgey has just been changed now to 9:45am. The last 2 weeks have been hard on optifast and now only clear fluids. Felt so hungry this whole time.
Congratulations!!! See you on the loser's bench!!

How long after surgery did the pain stop? I heard it hurts at first from the air they put in your abdomin
The key is to,sip the water as soon as they let you and walk as much as you can. This gets stuff moving and you metabolize and pass the gas. First day I was on pretty strong meds but by the end one of day 1gas was passing and I felt way better.
