I had the MOTHA of all c-sections, and I must completely disagree. This Lap Band recovery, thus far, has been a walk in the park! I've been able to burp/toot without any problems.... I'm feeling almost 100% at this point, and just get reminded when I'm sleeping and roll over that my abdomen is still a little sore.
I'm back to work, and able to sit at my desk and do my thing without issue!
AND.... I'm now down 38 pounds! Woot Woot!
