Update: AWESOME

Well, I had small bowel ressection on Feb 16, 2011, and I have gained 25 lbs, can eat everything and anything! This was by far the best thing I have ever done! I regret waiting for so long to get it done. I recovered in about 5 weeks, and I feel like I am in a new body. The down side is I have outgrown many of my jeans and some shirts are to tight! But I will deal with that, oh and my grocery bill has increased a little too much! I also was depressed before the surgery and I now have a great lookout on life. Just a sucsess story for me. Thanks, Billy.

Yes, food is awesome, except for the 30 lb gain, but at least I still have my six pack! I can even eat seeds with no issues. Surgery changed my life, lets hope it will last for years!

It's going to be hard perhaps to make sure that six pack does not be come a barrel
