If your dentists are like ours in California, somewhere in the health questionaire is a question about medications and prior operations. I have been seeing mine for over 30 years. He asked if I was still taking medications for my gut. I told him, "No, I'm cured". I then explained the surgery and how well I was doing. After that day, it never came up again. I just had an appointment with a oral surgeon. I answered the questions about surgery. It never came up. As I was laying back in the chair my hands folded atop the bag. It works as a natural muffler. Gotta do something with those hands. Might as well rest them there.
