Surgery complete. For me, the worst part has been due to the air they inflate you with. It has caused an awful lot of pain in my side and my normal back pain is far worse than the surgery itself. The doc went in on my left side due to the huge amount of scar tissue I have from a previous open gall bladder surgery. My biggest fear was that he was not going to be able to complete the band due to the scar tissue. Thanks for the notes from Michael and Maggie. It is very much appreciated.
