  7. Yes! I lost 100lbs and have kept it off for two years but after I got pregnant with my 2 year old I haven't dropped anything and I'm constantly hungry. It's either too full or too loose. And I see my doctor religiously. He thinks it may have slipped Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

    Calling all A11s!!

    Hello everyone!!! My name is evelyn im from orange county california, I am 30 (will be 31 at midnight) married for 7 years and i have two wonderful boys 11 and 4. I was 320 at my last appointment in my surgeons office now i am 310. Had my surgery on 8/15/11 on a monday and i was back at work on wednesday. The only thing i took was gas x and liquid tylenol. When i got home from the surgery center i had horrible gas pains so i called my surgeon just to be sure i was not having a pulmonary embolism (lol yes i know im a bit dramatic) but he said tmy symptoms were normal and to ride it out and thats just what i did. i have to admit the first 3 days were the hardest on me psychologically mostly because i kept telling my husband that all i wanted was a double double!!! (those who have ever had in&out burger know whats up) but now the cravings have subsided and its been smooth sailing. p.s im currently experiencing some gnarley pain under my left breast when i take a deep breath. My doc says its most likely the tubing pressing against my diaphram when i inhale and it should resolve itself soon.
  15. i quit 2 months ago and my surgery was august 15th. i figured if im doing something as drastic as surgery for my health i might as well put the smokes down. the only complication i have had so far is coughing when i was waking up from anesthesia. other than that i havent had too much time to worry about it. good luck
  16. i had my surgery on 8/15 and i feel the same way. im on liquids for two weeks (maybe more) im finding it very difficult but im sticking to it!! ugh but at least i now know there is a name for this place (lap band hell) i just wanted to express my gratitutde for this forum
