just gotta tell you, surgery rocks!!! LOL!!!
I know it's scary, it's really scary and it's one of the hardest decisions you will ever make, but it is also one you will not regret.
this ileo has given me my life back compeltly! And the majority of the time i forget it's there, i am far too busy doing all the fun things i couldnt' do before, like going to the beach, and hanging with friends and going to waterparks and taking my son bowlign and stuff like that. And way to busy eating ice cream, lol!
I am not gonna say it's always puppy dogs and fluffy clouds, there are a few down sides, but those are far outweighed by the good sides!
As for taking meds and supplements, i take a daily vitamin, that's about it.
