    I'm so sorry to hear about this. I was diagnosed with diverticulitis almost a year ago. It was the worst pain I've ever experienced. Just keep taking your meds & try and get some rest. Also, stay hydrated! Hope you feel better soon!

    Chewable protein supplements?

    Has anyone tried any kind of chewable protein tablet or gummie bear? I just can't stomach the shakes anymore. Despite my best intentions, its been a struggle to make sure I get the protein that I need. Any suggestions?
  4. I'm not usually a complainer, but, I just don't know what I may be doing wrong. I have read other peoples testimonies & they seem to be losing weight at a faster rate than me. I know everyone loses at their own pace & believe me I've always been a slower "loser" than everyone else. I'm just so afraid of failing my band. I was starting to have some health issues as a result of my obesity; so I don't want to fall back into old habits. I have spoken with my doctor & he assures me that I am doing everything correctly. I do exercise, get my proteinn, drink water(although I could probably increase that amount) & stick to my diet. But, still, I hover around the 340's. Any suggestions?

    I am dealing with that right now. My craving is always chocolate...this is a struggle but, I am learning to deal with it the right way.

    How many cc's is your band?

    No restriction at all prior to this fill. My dr doesn't use a fluoroscope. I am definitely going to ask them about on my next visit.

    October Bandsters?

    1 day post op. Ended up having to spend the night because my surgery got delayed by 3 hours, but, all in all, it wasn't a bad thing. Got some much needed rest & so far the pain has been tolerable. Thank God for pain pills, gas-x & heating pads. Hope everyone is doing well!

    October Bandsters?

    Surgery time is all set....10:15am this friday! Finished all pre-op blood work, paid my fees & pre-registered for admission....This is getting so real....a little scary but still exciting. I hope & pray for all of my fellow October Bandsters; may we all be successful, happy, healthy & definitely have little to no gas pain! LOL

    Pre-Op Weight Loss

    I was just wondering about everyone's progress. I am having the hardest time finding a protein shake/drink that I can stomach. They either make me nauseous or the taste is disgusting. I don't know what to do.....

    Short Term Goals

    My goals are 1) to not bust out sweating just walking across the room at my job, 2)for my knees, hips & feet to finally stop hurting and 3) to not always be the fattest person in the room!

    I'm having mine done here in San Antonio. I'll be so glad when that part of this process is over.
