I had surgery on March 20. As everyone posted, not bad at all. Minor discomfort but no actual pain. Must make sure to mention this to my Dr. thanks for the unnecessary stress. Dr had told me “of course it would be painful.” I met with the nurses at the center and what wonderful people. Wish me luck. My new concern now is weight gain. I’m told with PD the sugar solution put on major weight. Has anyone experience this?
