Heej Debbie,

My thoughts will be with you for the next week.

I hope everything will turn out to be just fine, and I am pretty sure it will.

Take care Debbie!

Hey Debbie,

I had the open GB surgery and I requested a cosmetic closure..............LMBO.  Like I was ever going to wear a bikini? smhair I have a huge scar but my surgeon liked to look at everything...............most people do not have a large scar.

My best advice is walk after surgery.  Just get up when your told to by your Doctor and walk to get your strength back and everything working in your intestines.  I had my hubby there to help me in and out of bed and walk we did.

I will be praying for you sweetie.

Sweet Hugs

Hi Debbie,  I wil be thinking of you when you go through your surgery.  You will be in my prayers as well.  I am sure things will be fine.  Make sure your hubby takes really good care of you.  And when you are home and feeling up to it let us know how you are doing.  As you can see there are many people who care so much about you.

Gentle hugs,
