Hey everyone! Just updating on my surgery of 10-30. This is my second week back teaching - I came back after Thanksgiving break. Aside from some lingering lack of stamina - I feel GREAT!!! Still some gas issues and a bit of sternal soreness, but not a peep of reflux and I've weaned down to half the dosage of my omeperzole. I see my gastroenterologist on Dec. 31 and am hoping to get off it completely at that point. The breathing trouble I had from my stomach crowding my lungs is gone. Basically this was a life changing experience and I'm so glad I got it done!! I'm back to eating fairly normally, but haven't added bread or rice back in yet. Hopefully this is reassuring to those who have the procedure upcoming. I know we've talked before about how bad outcomes get posted about more often than good, so I wanted to make sure and share my positive experience.
