I just had the exact procedure done 4/27 along with gallbladder removal.I had it done at 7:00a.m.woke up at 9:20,could have got up and gone home at 11:30 but had to wait until my husband went to lunch and came back to pick me up.I was walking up and down the hall going to the bathroom,didn't have nauseau or pain in the shoulder afterwards.I ate at 11:45.I had 6 incisions.The gas pains are not too bad.My problem is I am still sore on the inside and I don;t know how long it takes to recuperate.My intestine was stuck to abd.wall and I can feel the difference in that area but I am still real bloated and have no idea how long everything inside takes to heal.So maybe someone else can tell us that but the actual procedure was a piece of cake.Good luck and let us hear from you.Susan >
