    Your pain will be minimal. At worst maybe a dull ache where the doc inserted his laproscopic instruments. You will be blown away at how good you feel and will be equally surprised at how little you can eat.

    The best and most important thing you will do for yourself is walk, walk walk. That will relieve you of any gas that will still be in your abdomen as well as lessen the chance of a blood clot or heaven forbid, or getting pneumonia.

    More than likely you will be discharged from the center or hospital the same day. Just remember that you did have surgery and that you were under general anesthesia. Give your body some time to heal.
