Thank you so much Heather! I've learned a lot from reading your profile and appreciate you logging your process. I was wondering...how is eating with a band different than eating with the bypass? I'm used to what I can and cannot eat with the bypass, but unsure about banding. I saw the below response to one of your FAQs, but I'm wondering...if you can eat more, how is weight loss achieved? Thanks so much! Dawn
Do you feel full quickly ? How do you compare now to postop gastric by-pass ? You can eat a lot more food but it is different. My fears now are can I get it down bc the opening within the inside of the band is very very narrow. After RNY, it was like 4 -5 bites and I was full. For example, I can eat a cheeseburger no bun and some veggies, or a 2 egg omlette and some potatoes, chicken breast and some salad, I haven’t attempted bread yet. I have had a drink or 2 (well more actually) and I did have cheesecake while on a business trip.
