Kristina describes how painful her LAP-BAND® surgery felt and how long it took her to recover from the procedure.
Between 1 and 10, I would say it was a 7 until two days later, and it was pretty much gone. I went in the hospital about 9 o’clock a.m. I was on the table at 2:45 p.m. I was released from the hospital at, I would say, 7:45 the same day, and I was able to walk. I was cleaning like picking up my house the very next morning at 8:00 a.m.
