    Out To Eat

    Check out this site: exercise4weightloss.com and then click on restaurants. It is geared toward weight watchers but it is a fabulous site for restaurant nutritional facts in one place. I always consult it on my iPad before ordering.

    May Bandsters!

    Saw the doc this am for 2 wk postoperative visit. I was down 22 lbs from the preop visit 4 wks ago and down 9 lbs since surgery. I really wanted a fill but he says 1 month out in order to be fully healed. So, bandster hell for at least 2 more weeks. I've come this far. Can't screw up now.

    What Exercise Do You Suggest??

    My port is in the same place yours is. I was banded recently by Dr. Spaw in the same group with your doc. They must like to put the port there for some reason. I'm going to ask him at my appt today. I agree with the folks that suggested leg exercIses to work the lower abs first. My husband and I are going to enlist a personal trainer as soon as I recover a little more and this is one of the first things I'm going to ask about. I'll let you know what the trainer says.

    Someone Noticed!!!!!!

    That's great. Way to go.
  14. Yes, That was true for me. On about post op day 9 or 10, I could get in the 64oz daily water requirement pretty easily. I can do 80oz now, which is what I was doing prior to surgery. I don't have a fill at all though, so I suspect that will change some when I do.

    May Bandsters!

    I'm totally with you- feels like nothing has happened at all now. Bandster hell is not fun! My 1st follow up appt is Thursday the 31st- I'm going to ask if he will give me even a little fill since I have nothing at all, but he may wait til 4 wks post-op.

    May Bandsters!

    Now that I have read this they are really itching now...
  23. Day 6 or 7 was my worst days, fortunately better days were right around the corner. I still cannot sleep reaaly comfortably on my left side. I called the doc also and was told it was just gas pains.

    May Bandsters!

    You will do great. It will be over with so quickly. The anesthesiologist put in my IV and he numbed it up first, maybe you could ask them to do that for you also.
