    Explain It To Me!

    To me it sounds like he doesn't understand how the band and your body work together. It seems that his expectations as to how much weight and how quickly you lose it are a little on the high side. Just try talking to him and educating him on how the LB works as a tool to assist you and what to expect as far as weight-loss goes. Knowledge is power!

    Riding While Fat?

    I love riding my vintage 1977 Yamaha XS750 triple! Restored and runs like a banshee...She'll be even quicker the more weight I lose. I don't think I'll ever let anything get in the way of my riding. It is my escape, my freedom, my addiction. Uploaded with ImageShack.us

    Just Banded & Now Recuperating

    Congrats! Sounds like you're doing everything right! You'll be feeling better in no time! Keep us updated on your progress.
  18. I had the exact same symptoms and my wife suggested that it may be because I drinking from a straw all day and may have been consuming extra air. I stopped drinking from a straw and a day later the gas subsided. Not sure if this is your issue, but just offering my experience. I hope it helps.

    Questions And Issues About Lapband

    I'm going to have to agree with Jean on this one. It sounds to me like you may have more than one addiction and yes they are addictions.....don't kid yourself. YOU aren't in control. I would highly suggest seeking assistance with the other substances. In turn when you do have lapband you'll be much more successful. Discuss all of this and be honest with your Dr, Psych, and above all else...yourself. I have experience with both and while yes, there may be a very select few who have managed, they are the exception to the rule. Think about your family memebers whom you have lost. Marijuana is a carcinogen and make no mistake is not good for you. Alcohol is really no different than a candy bar....you can have it, but you really shouldn't. I wish you good luck and hope you do what is right for you. In the end it is up to you. X
