6 days post-op and I am curious about something.  I was very swollen day 2 and could barely tolerate ice chips without getting foamies.  By day 3 I was so much better and able to drink my juice the morning I was released, and continued the day taking b

I have a sleeve! - Had Sleeve surgery done on 3/9/15.  I had such an easy recovery from band removal that I didn't expect to feel so bad from this.  I was severely nauseas and had ridiculous acid the...

Finally home.  Thanks for all the prayers and good thoughts, I made it through uneventfully!  I did not do well on ice chips or water, but got some low sodium chicken broth and it is like sipping on heaven.  Time for a nap on my own bed now : )

Well, actually tomorrow... but I leave today and have surgery first thing in the morning.  My feelings about this are odd this past week.  I feel so detached. I am not excited, nervous, or scared.  I am almost apathetic about it. 

When I went i

Uhggg - I am just heartbroken.  I weighed today to set a goal and beginning weight... I weigh 240 lbs.  More than pre-lapband.  Will write more tomorrow.

Sigh, no band no sleeve struggle - I know I should be grateful for so many things.  The lapBand slippage was there for years and never went to erosion.  I am still fat but relatively healthy.  The damage in having t...

Band is out, but no sleeve - I had my LapBand removal yesterday morning.   The Dr. said there was so much scar tissue and adhesions that he initially thought there would be no way I would be viable to have the...

Question for former LapBanders - My band has been empty for 4-5 years due to overfill and/or possible slip.  Dr advised an unfill to see if it resolved itself.  Once the fluid was out I was fine.  No restriction t...

Time for a new chapter - Band issues in 2010 led to a total unfill.  Refill and emergency unfill.    I have remained unfilled since and have slowly ad steadily gained back every pound.  I am having my band...

Protein powder? - I will start my pre-op soon and am wondering what Protein powder options are the best.  Is there one that will also be okay for the post op period?  I don't remember what I used w...

Banded in 05 - Banded in 2005.  Worked great for years, got to weight and health goals.  Alas, we are no longer good together and will soon be separated.   I am leaving the Band for the Sleeve. ...

revision? - I have not been here in years.  I was doing well and abandoned the need for support.  I started having problems with my band 4 yrs out.  Fill/unfill, faoming and vomiting, overs...
