25 1/2 hrs post op!!

Woo-hoo!! I'm banded!! What a thrill. The past 24hrs have been interesting but overall a really positive experience! I had great night and it was not nearly as scary/painful as I anticipated. Oddly enough the worst part was back pain caused by the stupid hospital bed! My amazing night nurse Lynn found me a comfy chair to sit in which helped the back pain/gas pain immensly!! I stayed in it for a good 3hrs before bedtime!!!

I'm posting a couple vids and watch if you're interested! Be forwarned at the end of the first video I show my tummy with my incisions so if you are weary of stitches at all...don't watch til the end. There is a warning on the video right before I show!!

Anyhow...I feel great today! Just passed gas for the first time! Laugh away but it was amazing!!!

So, without further ado...
(sorry had to link to YouTube since Blogger wouldn't upload my vid :(

and because my screen saver cut me off so's the rest!

and for those of you who want to see the up close shot of the sutures...
My lovely incisions!! Gotta love the nice jaundice look of the betadine!!!
