  1. So I thought it would be fun to start a topic on the things we will NOT miss after our surgeries! I think we should write one or two, or three things we hate about being "big" "fluffy" etc... I'll start... i won't miss people call me "big guy" i wont miss children staring at me and saying "Daddy he's fat" i wont miss shopping at Casual Male XL and spending $65 on a shirt!!!! How about you...what will you not miss!

    Day of Surgery

    From the album: My Progression To My New Life

    Picture of me the day of surgery. I was not sure it was going to happen so when it did I snapped this and went off to surgery.
  8. I was banded on August 16th and since then I have lost 19lbs!

    Not to sound like an idiot but what are soft scrambled eggs?
  10. I got banded on the 16th, and now when I eat anything, like pudding, or an popsicle since I am still liquids I get heartburn when I lay down. The surgeon said he fixed my hernia and that would stop, any suggestions?
  11. Wish me luck, they told me yesterday that they may have to postpone my surgery if the Anesthesiologist believes I am to high risk and move me to the hospital instead of the surgical center! That will mean another delay and one more set back, but if it is OK, I will get my band with plication today! Wish me luck my fellow banders!

    I Love Been Banded And Plicated!

    My surgeron, Dr. Darrin Hansen, started adding the plication as part of his surgical procedure and the cost was the same to me. In fact I had no idea he did it until I did some research on here, and on other sites, and then I asked my Dr. and he told me he started doing it in January as a general rule. I am hoping it helps me with extra weight loss, he said it should be around 70% as opposed to 60% with just the band, but again there has been no long term study thus far.

    One More Day Of Work!!!

    My surgery is on Thursday too! Good luck to both of you guys...I can't wait! I took 10 days off from work so I hope i do well. This has been so many years in the works. Every time I got close something would happen like losing my jobs, or my wife telling me she wanted a divorce, closing my business, or foreclosure...one way or another something happened. This time all is going well, I have it paid for, time off from work and now I just need a ride to an from the hospital! Good luck to us all, let's stay in touch post op. Good luck....
