I was able to walk around, move around, and just do anything, really. After about two days I was up and going again. It was about two days I was back doing my household work. I was doing everything again. Just running around with the kids, cooking, cleaning. I had little discomfort, very little discomfort. I thought labor was way worse afterwards.

There was no problems at all. Nobody would’ve known that I had the gastric bypass surgery.
