Rate This

Rosa describes her recovery from gastric bypass surgery.

People ask me if it was painful having the procedure done, and I can reassure you it’s not. I had more pain when I had my c-section for one of my kids than having gastric bypass. I could not believe it. I thought I was going to be in more pain; getting all kinds of painkillers, morphine and stuff like that–no. All I had to do, I mean, there’s going to be some discomfort, yes. Like anything else, just like when you go and take your tooth pulled out. But this time I didn’t have, I mean, I just had to walk off and the pain was like, and the discomfort would disappear. But it wasn’t painful. I am telling you, it’s more pain involving getting a c-section than having this procedure done.
