    Scar Tissue With The Band?! :(

    Each surgeon assesses the viability of doing the revision in one step or 2. Often they are unable to make the determination until they are removing the lap band and can view the scar tissue, possible damage from the band, etc.

    Another Rant About Husbands/spouses

    When you both have some quiet time to think about it, you may want to let him know that the journey you are on is and will be a challenging road for you to navigate. There will be times when you will want and need him to hold your hand and listen to your hopes and fears and share his hopes and fears as well. It is likely hard for him to envision what you are feeling and may not know how to express himself. Partners can develop insecurities of their own when they see changes and while they love us and are proud of us, they may fear losing us as we become healthier, more confident and forward looking...when you explain to him that you understand his concerns and while you are considering plastics when you reach goal it is to continue to improve your self esteem and that many people choose to complete their journey in that way. You sound like you have a good head on your shoulders and you'll raise it with him when your ready to share and I bet he'll receive in a more understanding way :0)

    Not Alone, Or Am I

    It takes courage to share our personal pain and stories. You have demonstrated strength and bravery by reaching out. Be proud of the steps you are taking and soon you will see that each step forward provides rewards that will give you a sense of pride and increased confidence. While we attach much of our self worth to the size on our clothes, the number on the scale and the opinions of others...it can be difficult to believe in our own self worth. When we work on believing in ourselves, separate and apart from our weight and Celebrate our strengths in other areas we gain the confidence to lose. You sound like you are so ready for positive change. That is the first step to a healthier, happier, more confident you. I know how it feels to want to crawl under a rock and hide from the world. I also know it feels so much better to sit on that rock and watch the sun set after a hike through the woods with my friends :0) Know that you are not alone and it will get better.

    First Business Trip Post-Op...ugh

    I have tried many natural unflavored Protein powders and the one I use is absolutely incredible. I put it in everything. I purchase it online at canadianprotein.com It is 100%pure whey protein isolate. 1 scoop is: 121 calories 1 gram of fat 1 gram of carbohydrates 1 gram of sugar 27 grams of protein You can order bulk in a big box, or in the 2 or 5 pound bags. Every morning I start my day by putting 1 scoop in my coffee cup with a tablespoon of Benefiber, a teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/4 cup of Silk True Almond unsweetened, mix it up with a spoon until it is creamy, then I add my decaf. coffee and stir again, it dissolves completely and adds no flavor, just low carb, low fat, low sugar, high protein! My surgeon allows Benefibre and 1 cup of coffee per day, so make sure you check with your Surgeon first as all of our plans are unique to each of us.

    To Vlog Or Not?

    I absolutely understand the whole exposed, vulnerability component associated with blogging on YouTube. I have been contemplating moving forward with vlogging as well. I did initiate the first step by creating a YouTube account. My chanel is Happytrails4ever. I have posted my story and will be updating soon. I did complete an initial One True Media slide show of photos as a first step. I have also subscribed to several vloggers, including gastricsleeve4me, our friend here on the Forum, and have thoroughly enjoyed the connections, support and information sharing. I will be moving forward with updates and videos shortly. Feel free to subscribe to my channel and I will subscribe to your and we can support each other throughout our challenges and Celebrate our successes together! :0) I can't figure out how to update my Youtube channel or share pics and what not with my iPad yet, so I am working on it! Just a bit of a techno spazz learning how to use my new iPad at times! :0)

    Hello Head Hunger...

    I have found journaling and using the H.A.L.T. tool from the 12 Step Programs really helps me with head hunger. I take a moment and ask myself am I hungry, angry, lonely, or tired? It gives me an opportunity to think about where my head's at and for me 9 times out of 10, I am actually tired from going non stop through my work day or tackling my daily "To Do List" at home... So I journal a few notes and take a bit of down time to re-charge my batteries and do some some breathing exercises and stretching. Each evening I write in my Gratitude Journal, to review the day and think about the people and things that I am grateful for. It allows me to re-focus and hit the pillow with a positive mind set to get a good night sleep. For me getting enough sleep and managing my insomnia keep head hunger under control :0) Hope that helps.

    First Business Trip Post-Op...ugh

    Great post ladies! I find business travel, conferences, and the evening socials on the agendas require a lot of advance preparation on my part. One of the tools that really helps is packing BariWare along with my own Water bottle and travel mug. I add unflavoured Protein powder to everything especially organic herbal tea and sip on it throughout the day either warm or let it cool in advance and add ice for a pick me up. I don't use artificial sweeteners, but a tablespoon of cranberry or grape juice gives it a refreshing kick. I use a set of travel organizers from Coast Mountain Sports, that keep all of my supplements, Protein Powder and what not organized and ready for travel :0)
  18. Good for you for planning ahead and looking forward to prepare for post op! I am just heading out for a hike with my Fur Kid, so I will make this a short post, but I will get back to you later today with an "at home list" that worked for me as well :0) I found it was good to have some items to bring with me to the hospital as well, other than the standard toiletries and comfy loose bed gear and slippers with a good grip for walking after your surgery to help release the CO2 and assist with the healing process. The items I used the most and was grateful I brought with me were: 1. Gas X strips 2. sugar free Halls Vitamin C Drops (always check with the nurses to see what you are allowed to have first as everyone is different) 3. Chapstick/Lip Balm, lips tend to get very dry. 4. Travel pillow, the horseshoe shaped type used on flights is the BEST, for your neck to get comfy in the hospital bed as well as on your tummy when you cough and get up and down and for the drive home. 5. Baby wipes 6. Your 2 heating pads for sure! 7. Ear plugs- the hospital can be very noisy and the ear plugs will help relax you. 8. iPod to listen to music to relax you and eliminate some of the hospital noises. 9. A soothing natural aromatherapy spray to spritz on your pillow to calm you and help take away the hospital scents around you. 10. Journal, pen and paper. 11. Cell, Smart Phone, Laptop, etc. 12. Silly photos of my family, (parents, brother, nieces) my Fur Kids to make me smile. 13. Sunglasses or eye mask when it seems too bright 14. Ball cap, bandana or some kind of comfy head wear just seemed to make me feel more "at home". 15. A personal "good luck charm" any item that means something special to you that you can touch and see to bring you comfort and a sense of inner peace and normality. Hope that helps! You are going to do great! Husky Hugz from Canada :0)
