[font=georgia,serif][size=3]My name is Cindy, and I just had the Lap Band surgery on May 18, 2012. It went great! I had it done at Oradell Surgery Center. I love my doctor and all the staff there. I am on the liquid diet part 2nd week, and going crazy with being hungry. [/size][/font][size=3][font=georgia,serif]I am drinking my protein shakes, eating sugar free ice pops, jello and clear broths. I am so sick of it already. I haven't had my first fill yet the doctor will wait about 4 or 6 weeks first plus waiting for stomach to heal. I did have the horrible gas pains in middle of my back, UGGG! Kept popping GasX chewables and drinking lots of water. Plus walked around alot. Sleeping was a big issue too hard to get up, so I used 5 pillows to sleep sitting up. I am still having hard time sleeping alittle better. I don't feel like I lost anything yet but I feel confident that I will. I can start adding yogurt and cream soups next Friday! OH JOY, cannot wait. Well if anyone wants to chat and keep in touch please I welcome the company on this journey.[/font][/size]
