  1. Wow – the vitamin E would have helped me a lot!! My stomach did peel and flake after the surgery – it was nuts… but it’s over now.

    I think you’ll be plesantly surprised that the surgery and recovery really are painless and easy… or at least mine were… one thing to remember though – don’t be freaked out when you look at your stomach and realize there is a HUGE dent in it!! I am just now to a point (7 weeks later) that I don’t have the dent anymore… it’ll be where the inscision is right at your stomach.
