    I'm So Hungry

    One more question.. When you eat do you get the hiccups. Ever time i eat or even drink sometimes i get the hiccups really bad. i have also noticed i havent lost any weight since surgery but i havent been using the bathroom much either? i havent gained any either so should i be happy?

    I'm So Hungry

    Thats wonderful ideas!!! I love tomato soup and for some reason never thought about eating it as well as i love cream of wheat and those are both wonderful ideas. i guess in the back of my mind i only thought i could have water, broth, and popcicles and im sorry but im tired of them. Ive been eating back potatos, kinda like mash potatos but i mush them up as much as i can and add a little sour cream and i only eat about half and im full!

    I Give Up...

    I have only had the lap band for 6 days so I know I can't answer most of your questions but I would recommend to start over! Tomorrow is a new day and make it a new day! Keep your head up and don't give up! Losing weight is a challenge but would you be able to keep it off with out the band? I wish you luck and i'm sorry your going through such hard time

    I'm So Hungry

    I do Protein Shakes and it's just not enough. I even tried chicken broth and everything that I had pre-op that would make me full but for some reason i'm starving. I called my doctor and he told me to eat some yogurt and if I had to I could have some pureed food but not to over do it. But now i'm scared to even have pureed food because of me stretching my stomach this early on Now clam cowder doesn't it have chunks, because that's my favorite Soup and I could live on that!! o and good job on your guys weight lose!!!! makes me know I did the right decision!

    August Roll Call

    5 days post-up and i feel wonderful! my husband and i went out today and walked the flea market and than we even went out and got tattoos afterwards. (our 1 yr is on September 3) I still am a little sore but not that much at all. I find my self still gassy i feel like a man with my burps and farts. Thatsn not usually like me to just let it all out but i cant help it. I slept in bed last night and it felt wonderful still using the heat pad but ive been awake for almost 11 hours and thats really good considering ive been doing nothing but sleeping! Also havent been taking an rx pain pills, been sticking to nothing but aleve. I even cleaned the house today.. with help from my husband and son. I just hope the days get better and better and i dont go down hill anymore. I hope everyone is doing good and if you are still having troubles remember there is light at the end of the tunnel!!!!

    Something weird just happened I haven't been eating it even drinking very much because I wasn't hungry and I just woke up 4 o'clock in the morning starving. I sat here for an hour eating a SF jello and it tasted so good. but i'm full just from the jello cup but dang I never thought I would be that hungry. Only 4 days post op

    August Roll Call

    That makes me feel better. Today was my first day with no pain meds and im only 3 days post op.. I am feeling pretty good. I would say about 30% back to normal. No getting in all the protein shakes i need nor all liquids i need period. I feel like when i do im going to throw them right back up. I know this is all normal but i guess you never realize how much pain you will go through until you do it! But im glad its over and now im on my way to a better life!!
