Re: Surgery on 11/30 - Im scared!

It's very common in females leading many to think hormones may have some part in it. Or you may have too much or too little fat in your diet. It's no big deal. For 99% of people this is a simple, no long lasting side effects proposition.

I had mine out and jogged 2 miles a week later - at age 59. I've not had any issues and only personally know a couple of people who have - and both of them because they refused to eat low fat immediately after the surgery.

Now some do have other issues that make things problematic but am sure your doctor will go over any of them that you may have...or you can ask. Seriously, ask around. Am sure you know people who've had theirs out!
