I am a new banded patient, today is post op day 3.  I have been overweight all of my life and I hope this is going to help me not only get thinner but get healthy.  I have developed diabetes, sleep apnea, pcos and high cholesterol, not to mention acid reflux.  the surgery took me about 9 months to get it because insurance required that I see my primary dr for 6 monhts with a weight monitoring diet.  started out at 270, I am currently at 247.  I hope I adjust well to this, right now it is hard to drink or eat anything because you have to take tiny sips and tiny bites which I am used to shoveling it in like a hoover vaccum cleaner.  LOL    I am blessed with a great carreer, a wonderful loving and supportive husband, 2 beautiful children and 3 lovely dogs.  I am 37 yrs old and hope to get healthy again.
