  1. My surgery was on Tuesday morning 9/30. I was released from the hospital today. I don't have a lot of pain other the the gas pain that everyone reports. My problem is that I can't keep anything down. Not even Water. Anything I drink makes me sick to my stomach & comes back up. Anyone else have this problem? My doctor says that I shouldn't worry & give it a couple of days. Anyone have any advise.

  2. Well, in two days I will officially be a bandster. My surgery is on Tuesday morning. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM. Somthing tells me that I won't have any trouble waking up in time. I'm not nervous, but I would sure like to get this over with. Thanks to all my fellow bandsters & soon to be bandsters.

  3. I'm a guy, but I read somthing interesting about women's clothing styles. The expensive clothing manufacturers have a scam going concerning women's clothing sizes. According to the article a size 12 in an expensive women's dress is equivalent to a 14 or 16 in more reasonably priced dresses. In this way they get women to buy the more expensive clothing so the feel good about fitting into a smaller size. Is this true? Any of you gals have this experience?

  4. I'm scheduled for surgery on 9/30/03. I have a question about the liquid diet phase of the post-op period. My work requires that I travel to customers offices, so I'll have to brown bag my lunches on workdays. What do I bring. My docter suggests Carnation Instant Breakfast, but I can't start mixing shakes while I'm on the road. What about Slim Fast cans? They seem to be convenient to travel with. Suggestions appreciated.

  5. Hi, new member to the group. My surgery date is set for 9/30/03. I'm in the process of getting my pre-surgery tests squared away. Tomorrow I'm scheduled for a Veinus Doppler Test, Pulmonary Function Test & pre-admission blood tests. Seems like everyone wants a piece of me. I had a upper endoscopy last week. The admission clerk and the nurse kept asking me if I was there for a colonoscopy. I told the nurse that if one more person asked me that question, I was going to hang a sign on my butt that said "Other End". The test went fine.

    Counting the days!
