What else do I need to know?
You may have trouble sleeping on a bed for a few weeks. Many of us sleep in the recliner for a couple of weeks after surgery. There are good things and bad things about this. My doctor said it is fine as long as you remember to get up and walk. The first week home I walked the halls of the house through the night. You do not want to encourage blood pooling in your body from lack of moving. This is the same rule he gave me for sleeping in bed though, so I don't think it makes a big difference.
You will need a pillow to hold on to when you cough or laugh.
You may go through a depression after surgery. This is common with any surgery. It is very common with obese patients who have a history of depression anyway. The first 3 weeks were very hard for me. Then I felt better. In 7 weeks I felt normal again. If you feel depressed, do not suffer through it. Call your doctor! Many drugs for depression now come in liquid form. Prozac comes in a liquid form and it doesn't taste half bad. Take it. You will feel better for it.
You will be able to get around fine after the first few days. Make sure someone is around the first couple of times you shower in case you get dizzy.
