I had my surgery on Wednesday so I am on day 4 of recovery. I have some questions to those of you who have had successful..and non successful surgeries. First off..how long does the bloating from the CO2 last? My shoulder is killing me and everyone is saying that is what it is from! Feels like there is an elephant sitting on my chest...the doctor told my husband while I was in recovery that I might have some pain in my chest..common? Last but surely not the last time I will ask something is about the burping!! How many of you actually can burp after the procedure?!? I am soooo aftraid of that...the not burping part because I will miss my social beer I like to have every now and then..and the whole being able to release air from my stomach to make me feel better! Anyways..any input would be greatly appreciated!!
