I have found out that some of my friends didnt receive the knowledge they should have from their weight loss clinics/hospitals. I think that its really interesting how much I have learned from my dietician,my physician, the surgeon and by reading alot of other ppl's posts on here and in myspace and in yahoo groups. I am so glad that I have had such great teachers. I always have asked alot of questions and Im thankful to all of you who have given me support and information. I just hope that when I am banded that I too can share my own journey with others who need more information before deciding on whether this is what they wish to truly do.

 

I have some close friends who are close to getting surgery dates as well and we talk alot. They too are having surgery at smdc as well. I will be the first one to have this though and always thought we would all have the same times or near the same times. Two of them have things they have to complete and the other friend of mine is just waiting for them to give her the date of her surgery. She goes to another hospital st lukes they do things differently as we all know how each doctor differs.

 

Anyway thank you for all of you who have put up with all my questions and I'm sure that I will have more after being banded on december 19th. Im doing fantastic with my liquid pre op diet. Its not as bad as I thought it was going to be. I am very proud of myself and will continue to remain positive even when things are going slow.

 

thanks for reading.. have a great day everyone..

Hi Jewels

Welcome to LBT! You are so correct in educating yourself on this decision. Knowledge takes away alot of the fear/regret/guilt that you see written about in the posts/blogs.

You sound like you're ready to make the life changes needed to have success with the band.

Good luck on your journey!!

Amanda
