I had the surgery two years ago, and it went great! The only complication I had was a little fever for a couple of days, but the surgeon said that that wasn't a problem. Most people think that because this surgery is so much easier because they only make a few small incisions, and that you can go home the next day--you don't even have to recover...but that's not true. It took me about a week, and I was back to normal. Listen to your doctor and take it easy, and you should be fine! The doctors told me that I could still get heartburn, but so far I've had no problems with it...before the surgery, I had it so bad that I would get the sweats from the pain. (If I had it to do over again, you better believe I would!
Good luck, and let us know how it went.
