Hi guys , I was banded by Dr. Valin at ST. Rapheal's in New Haven a week ago today on 9/12/08. Yeah! Lost 10 pounds so far with no restriction. It's the easiest weight I EVER lost in my life. I'm a little scared of getting that first fill but...I'm generally very happy if you can't tell. We all go through so much to get that little band.

Hey Lap Band Momma - I will be getting my band with Dr. V in just under two weeks. I'm sure you know, but his staff all seems great - I am sure your fill will be no problem!

Hi Sara Jane. I'm going to see Dr. V Thrs. for my fisrt pre-op appointment. I pray he'll move me on from the liqiud stage to pureed/soft foods. The liquids are getting old. My biggest challegne is trying to get enough protein in per day. After surgery you can only eat 2 ozs. per meal. 1 Atkins shake is 11 ozs. so like the dietician Diana said I'll take you all day to drink one. Then you can have one other "liquid meal" like 1/4 cup of Jello or soup broth. I have to say I've been cheating and having 1/4 cup of any kind of soup as long as it's been blended once or twice a day just to have something to chew. I tried to add protein powder to my protein shake and it was disgusting. Diana said there are some flavorless protein powders out there so I'll look for those. Please feel free to e mail me (kcerutti@aol.com) if you have any questions as we are close in our surgery dates. I will be 2 weeks post op Friday.
