    Ugh!!!

    Hello to all! I was banded on Wed the 31st and don't know how much more of this GAS PAIN I could take!! The lil incision burning I could hand, but this GAS.......it's kill in me! Besides that, I'm feelin a lil hungry and don't even know what to eat!!! I've been sippin on liquids but I'm feelin pretty crappy right now! Called my Dr and he thinks besides the gas pain that MAYBE some tube s rubbing along my abdominal wall. REALLY? just my luck! He advised me to move around blah blah blah, can't stand this! It's been TWO ays and I'm hoping I didn't make a huge mistake!! Tell me I'm not alone here! Tell me food on the Tv s just my imagination!! Tell me this is gonna get better!

    I am 4 days post op, and today is the first day i actually felt hungry. I have been on protein shakes, broth, water, etc..since the day i came home from hospital. I had some sugar free applesauce today, and could only eat about half of the cup! but it did help curb my appetite a bit. Cant wait til i move on to the mushies!

    My period started 3 days after surgery, even though I was on birth control and it wasn't time for it to start yet.....how fun!!! NOT!! At that time I was using nuva-ring. Then in late July, I started new birth control and during that had a normal period but haven't had one since then...had a pregnancy test at the beginning of August during my period (a requirement to get an IUD) and haven't started yet....I'm debating getting a pregnancy test, even though I know I'm not..... but I am guessing that between the surgery, weight loss, and new birth control that my body is thrown off and is now whacky....I'm not sad about lack of a period, though!!

    Ugh!!!

    Like everyone else: " hang in there".. it will get better. I was banded 8/18 and I felt like my gas pains were the worst.They lasted over a week!! and i went back to work on day 5! and walked at work etc..up until last week I still felt bloated, no gas pain which was ok. My gas pains included severe shoulder pain. I mean I was so scared that the gas pain was never going to go away and I would be stuck with this horrible pain. It was worst after my first meal and at night.I finaly broke down on day 5 and bought extra strenght gas X strips! they were wonderful..within minutes the shoulder pain would go away and I would start to "release" my gas ! lol ...like said you are not alone..the pain will go away!!

    2nd fill tomorrow

    Good for you! Glad to hear you are feeling a little more restriction. I was banded 6.1 , then had a 5cc fill 6 weeks later. I am having my second fill 9.6 and I am hoping to get 3cc more. At 5cc I only felt restriction for about 2 days. Then poof- nothing.... I am so looking forward to finding that "green zone" or whatever, because I haven't lost much weight since the last fill. My clothes is much looser from my exercise, but I want to see it on the scale... And like you said, I spent $15 K and I want my results. But something is working because I have dropped 4 sizes since I started this process. Best of luck to you and take care!

    Just remember nothing tastes as good as thin feel. Maybe you sould tell your Mom about how difficult she is making this. I think everyone should have a safe haven, with a positive support system. If your Mom is eating that way 3 days in a row , i'll bet she needs help with her weight. All the best!

    I can ignore it no problem like you said, its just when its in the house is when i get upset.(i dont want it around) I mean i didn't touch it, doesn't mean that it still doesn't make me want to eat something. There is only so long that you can do tomato soup, and shakes before going a little koo koo..>.<

    Are you serious? The OP is 19 years old and living with her parents. I think we can safely assume that it is their house and not hers. She has no right to dictate what they bring into it. Her parents would not be doing her any favors by shielding her from temptations. She needs to learn to deal with them on her own. If Mom and Dad are eating something she finds difficult to stay away from then she needs to go out or stay in another room.
