Hi Paul…

I did wee a lot mainly because I was drinking lots of water plus the four pints of milk.

I took it very easy for a week, don’t lift anything it could split your scars and move the band, getting out of bed you need to curl up and roll out as your a bit tight around the middle, the worst I found was the wind pain.. Not farting but the gas they pump in you during the op, it hangs around the shoulders on fact the left shoulder that got quite painful in the evenings, but I found burping eased it, it lasted about a week. Just don’t stretch or lift anything. At the two week stage I started gentle Brest stroke at the swimming pool, she wasn’t very happy but I enjoyed it… Lol

Take care keep focused and keep us all updated

Where are you having the op.

Love John xx
