It's so weird without a bag again, only thing is I get sore tummy & cramps which I never missed when I had my bag eyes but things are going great, I hope you all are keeping well.

Hi Gillian:

I'm glad to hear your doing well! I had my reversal on May 28th. My progress has been slow but steady. It took a while before my appetite came back. I was NPO for 2 weeks and I ended up losing about 20lbs. (I've gained back about 10lbs.). Plumbing is slowly progressing but I also have an sore tummy & cramps from time to time.

I hope things keep going well for you.

Richard

Gillian,
I'm so glad you got through the surgery and are doing well. Sorry to hear about the pneumonia, though. How much weight is a stone in kilos? Hope your recovery is a smooth one.
Take care,
