    Procedure or Surgery

    Still recouping. Spent 5 days in hospital. At home recouping since that time (2 1/2 weeks so far). Still sore under breast and side. First week was rough. Felt like I was choking when I ate. I also have a lot of heartburn and have to take medicine for that now. I never had hearburn prior to surgery.

    Went as Expected: Agree
    Minimal Recovery: Neutral/NA
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Disagree
