Well 14 days since I had the Linx and I'm doing pretty good.
Only took pain meds for 4/5 days, and finally managed a bowel movement at day 5 with a little help from Lactulose.
I have had no throat pain (lump in throat feeling) since the surgery, and have had no indigestion.
I am getting some discomfort when I first start a meal, and it feels as if the device has to get warmed up so it can open and close properly. I am still eating all normal foods (chewed very well) and can not pin point this problem to a specific food type.
I did have my first small drink of alcohol in a year and a half yesterday! I also ate some spicey food (noodles) for the first time in 3 years+
My incisions are pretty painless now, and I just can't wait to start some exercise.
I do still get some low down stomach/bowel discomfort (which I had prior to surgery) which I am going to get checked out, but all in all I am doing well so far.
