I have been feeling great since my surgery after 2 weeks I have NO gerd symptons and I feel PERFECT. Almost as if I never had the surgery. My Doc told me today I could resume life ALMOST as normal. He told me to start eating "regular" foods except "heavy" meats and carbonation. Take small bites and chew A LOT. He also said I could have a glass of WINE or two haha. I could drink my Crown without pop or substitute flat pop NO CARBONATION of course and Margaritas would be perfectly fine. With a set of twins that are 2 and a 3 year old you dont know how important my occasional beverage was to me hahaha. He said next week I can start exercising again.

They tell you 8-12 week recover but he said that assumes worst case scenario. Everyone is different luckily I am a quick healer and going into this I was in pretty good shape. I did lose a total of 6lbs back to my college weight haha. Hope everyone can through this with the luck I have had

Good Luck All

Congratulations, Big Jake!
I'm glad your surgery was such a success. Don't get too frisky too quickly, though. Go slowly and gradually introduce challenges.
Happy eating!
