smilewinkgrin  Can't believe how good I feel.Eating well and quickly advancing to normal food.Discovered how important the best surgeon is and how vital doing research is,got some terrible instructions from a couple of nurses while in hospital,thank God I knew enough not to follow them.Only problems were a breathing problem that scared me a bit because my chest began to hurt so i went to the ER luckily it was only a URI and its pretty much gone.I created my own problem by ignoring my mild lactose intolerance and making myself sick for 2 days I'm fine now.My surgeon was reccomended by my ENT.I found his internet reviews to be incredible and he is just plain great with his patients.Turns out he is the one that brought Laparscopic surgery to his hospital.I tell people he is not one of the best he is the best!

Hi dlc1957,
Welcome to the Healing Well yeah yeah yeah Wrapped Club! yeah yeah yeah It's great to hear that you're doing well.  You are so right about making sure you have the best possible surgeon in order to achieve the best possible results.
Thanks for checking in and letting us know how you're doing.  It's really helpful to others who are searching for information about the surgery, or are in the early stages of recovery. 
Happy healing!
