My Gastric bypass was on February 6, 2015 and the recovery was a little more than I expected. Tough being off work for about 3 weeks but feeling great now. Today is March 10, 2015 about 4 1/2 weeks since surgery. I am down 29 pounds and fitting into some of my clothes that I have not been able to wear for quite a while. Some of the symptoms are pretty similar to the band when it comes to quantity and types of food. I feel much better not being able to feel the band device in the area it was placed. Heres to continuing losing and feeling better. Need to walk more often!!!
