LIS - 1 year later

Postby Laurieb » 30 Jun 2018, 22:01

Hi!

It’s been a year today since I had my LIS! I’m pain free since about 4 months, because I had a sentinel tag removed in december that slowed down my LIS recovery. Life is so much more enjoyable since I’m pain free. I eat without restrictions, but still healthy. If a major change happen in my normal eating schedule, however, I can still feel a slight discomfort for few minutes after my bm but it quickly goes away.

Consider this surgery if you suffer, I can’t believe the pain I was in for several weeks, so much time I lost. Go for it!
