  1. Some of y'all have some awesome insurance!
  2. Thanks for that info. I'm going to see if the surgeon has a form like that I can give to the doctor. My insurance is requiring it. Thanks again!
  3. Thanks for this information! I have UHC as well. What exactly did the doctor need to do in order to give you the 5 year history of weight? He was just able to fill out a form for you? I have no idea what doctor I went to five years ago. Thanks for any help!
  4. No one's getting banded today so I figured I'd ask how everyone is doing that's been banded already. I'm doing good. Eating regular foods... have been for a while.. I'm definitely not as hungry as I was before I got banded. I still need to start exercising..It's just really hard for me to get started. I ordered a bunch of different Protein powders that will come tomorrow so I can make sure I get enough protein in everyday. I'm really not keeping track which isn't good..but I'll figure it out. I'm still swollen where my port is..I wonder how long it will be before that goes away..I suppose sometime before my 6 weeks cuz that's when I get a fill. Just wanted to check in and see how everyone else is doing.

    Just got back from post op surgeon's visit...

    That's awesome girl! I'm proud of you!! :party:
  6. Congrats hon..I'm glad you are doing okay..I can't believe you can drink already... dude..I got tortured!
  7. I know it's no big deal..and I know you didn't mean it in the actual way..but honestly, I study Forensic Psychology and I was actually married to a psychopath...just because someone doesn't doubt him or herself or show any type of emotion just because they are having surgery..does not even come close to meaning that someone is a sociopath.. seriously.. there is A LOT more involved in what characteristics a sociopath has... A sociopath is seriously a really really really bad person..so people might take offense that you had said that.. I know you didn't mean it in that way..and I know the word sociopath and psychopath is different to me because of what I explained..but honestly just be careful of using that word.. it's a pretty serious word and a lot of people have gone through hell having had to deal with an actual sociopath. Just saying..

LMAO! How did everything go hon?

    I'm banded...

    Congrats to you. Question for you... what have been some of your staples as in food through this process. Do you still drink Protein shakes? Have any favorite recipes, etc? I can't wait till I'm at your point!

    What do you do...

    Otay seriously...I would start taking some Motrin, Vitamin C, and some antioxidants ASAP!! and keep on it all day and tomorrow!! What about some of that stuff called Emergen-C or whatever... that you mix into water..I would take some of that too..it's filled with vitamins... that's what I would do... but seriously...take Motrin and/or Tylenol.. you can stagger them... that's what I do for my kids when they have high temps. Let us know how you are doing!

    I'm banded...

    No I haven't seen that thread..I'll have to look for it. Is there a reason they gave to give it a name?? Just curious..
  14. Awww...that sucks being sick! Hope you feel better soon! I personally wouldn't get a fill until I was fever-free for 24 hours w/o medication and it would suck if someone else got sick at the dr. office from you being sick. kwim?
  15. Good luck today guys! You will be in my thoughts!!! ROCK ON!!!

    I'm banded...

    :lol: Seriously...that's just soooo my personality...Seriously, I could be in the hospital after someone stabbed me or or something like that..and I'd be cracking jokes about it... saying..good thing he missed my throat..cuz we need to go out drinking after this shit.. that's typical Smokey personality.. I'm glad you are feeling better! What constant beeping did you have?? All of us had our own private room at the hospital....sucks you had to share..but it would have been nice to have someone to talk to who had the same thing done.. Hope you are getting lots of rest hon!! HUGS!

    OMG 1 drink and you feel full? WOW that's a tragedy.. Do you think it's because of the carbonation?? I wasn't planning on having beer yet...well, now that they said that about guinness..lol I was just gonna stick to rum, vodka, and tequila for now. But rum and vodka can be easily mixed with crystal lite..you can do a low carb margarita.. damn...all this talk..I need a damn drink!
  18. SMOKEY2112


    OMG WOW! Gosh maybe being an alkie will be so much cheaper for me now.. I suppose I'm just gonna have to drink myself and find out... I'm a drinker. When I drink... I prolly drink 2-3 drinks an hour.... To all the non-drinkers it sounds like a lot...but it's really not... I'm just gonna drink tomorrow and find out... it'll be like an experiment!
  19. Years ago I liked Designer Whey the best..it's really good!! Now..drinking shakes again...I really like the RTD Muscle Milk..so I just ordered the Muscle Milk protein powder...I got the cake batter and brownie batter flavors. I also heard that the Nectar band was really good..so I ordered some of those too.

    almost passed out and got sick

    I'm sorry that happened to you hon!! I have staples... do most people have stitches??? I don't see anyone talking about staples..except for me..

    Since we are on one of my favorite subjects...alcohol ..I have a question. Those of you that are saying that you aren't able to drink as much as you did before, etc. Did you drink a lot at all before? On a normal night out.. how many drinks would you have? I haven't had a drink since this whole thing started... so almost a month...that's a long time for me. I normally drink a few times a week.. just being honest..so I'm just curious how much you drank before being banded as opposed to now...that you can feel so much of a difference.. does that make sense?
  22. SMOKEY2112


    I TOTALLY agree! Who the hell needs food when you have beer! :lol:Seriously, if my pre and post op liquid diet was a beer diet.. I wouldn't have complained not even once!! Bandcamp1210.. that Dr. Malley possibly sounds like one of the most intelligent people I've never met! This has been a very informative thread for me that's for sure. Peace, Love, and Cold Beer
