  1. I am almost 3 weeks post op and starting to work out, but I am only taking in around 600 calories a day and I don't want to fatigue while working out, but what I am eating is keeping me full. Where should my calorie intake be at this point and with a healthy workout??? Kati

    I sure hope you are feeling better now. I still have a little sharp pain on my left side, but it comes and goes. I am feeling almost 100% again...almost!
  7. How are you feeling 3 days post-op?????? Day 1 I was pretty active doing laundry and picking up the house with assistance. Been taking it slow day 2 and 3, did make a trip to Walmart and got a manicure. Just wondering how everyone else is feeling? I'm really hungry and trying to get all my Protein and Water down. Gas pains are in my chest but I have been up more than down walking and also using a heating pad.

    Anyone Getting Banded In July?

    I think it just depends on what you like taste wise and that you are getting enough protein. I can't remember the exact number, but I think it is 25 grams that your body can consume at one time. Good Luck!! I plan on using www.unjury.com , they have unflavored so you can put it in anything.
  21. I attended my pre-op class yesterday and they said to not travel more than 30 mins at a time to avoid blood clots for 4 weeks. I will be going back to work a week after surgery and I travel 3 hours a day on my work commute. Has anyone else heard this before. I can understand a trip to Florida or something, but I have to go to work. Any advise would be nice, I do plan on talking to my doctor too.
