Donna, I had my surgery Aug 3rd with Dr. Smith. I had my surgery at the Hurst Surgical Center. It went great. I had my first fill on Sept 5th. 2nd fill scheduled for Oct 4th. I have lost 32 lbs including the weight I lost on pre-op diet!! I won't lie it is hard and right now I am hungry a lot. In the beginning you are so sore and tired eating isn't appealing at all. Once the swelling goes down and you get rid of the gas ohhhhhhh the gas!!!! you will be ready for that 1st fill, I know I was getting hungry a lot!! I have been able to put on some shirts I hadn't worn in a while and some pants aren't so snug. I am thrilled!!!!!!!Only 12 lbs and I am under 200 lbs WOO HOO!!!!! Please keep in touch and I will answer any questions and help if I can!! Hang in there!!

Hi Donna, I'm having lap-band surgery the same day as you. I'm a self pay also. I'm not on a special diet until 7 days before surgery. I wish you the best and maybe we can keep in touch while going through the process. Take care, kim Ferguson
