Adam, I'm having step 2 of 3 in mid-September and I'm expecting to be in the hospital about
one week. I don't know if your's was lapro but mine was not so I'll have to be
opened up again. Not looking forward to that recovery again. I remember my surgeon saying that the second surgery is easier than the first because you are already used to having the appliance. Why have you been bored though? Your bag shouldn't stop you from doing the things you were doing before.
