Topic: RE: Rny to Lap Band; Do u Lose Weight as fast?
Hey Sammy. How are you? Im a little over a week too, I guess 10 days now. Im down a little over 20lbs and feeling good. Today my stomach hurts a lot and I am not sure if its bc Im hungry or its actual pain. All I've eaten today is 1 shake, 1 greek yogurt and some chicken I pureed. Today was the 1st time I think I felt the restriction when i ate the chicken. After a maybe a 1/2 cup, I felt full and tight. I am not really sure why bc I have like nothing in my band.
Saturday I hurt a lot but I overdid it on the exercise, I walked like 3-4mi and was very sore. Today, it just hurts in my stomach, like a cramp. I took some tylenol with codeine and it doesnt seem to help which makes me think its food pains ???
I saw my dtr last Friday the 1st, actually my dr is on vaka, so, I saw the nurse. He checked the incisions, took off the bandages, weighed me and moved me to pureed which was great bc I was supposed to do a full 10 days of liquids. I missed chewing. Im on pureed for 10 days, so, I guess thats till the 11th then I go to regular food. Which is good bc I have a business trip to Boston on the 14th. I did try my 1st glass of wine on Sat night I so miss wine.
I dont think it will be super hard to lose once we are on real foods, I think it maybe easier, well, once they find the right amount of fill. I say that bc right now, I am not eating/drinking enough. Only like 800 cal and I know from the RNY that the more you eat, the more protein you get in, that you lose. I think if I have a consistent 1000-1200 cal per day and 60g of protein, i will lose. And right now, Im not gettign that much and as much as I dont get it, you need to eat to lose. Plus the exercise will help. I've been walking the dogs a lot, a few miles a day and today I went back to the gym. Treadmill only but I think it is key. Even if its only 30 min a day this week, next week 45min and then advance to an hr.
Keep in touch.
