  6. Hi...my name is Nadine. I have a surgery date of Oct 11th. Starting this process was easy for me. I made up in my mind that I no longer wanted to be heavy and have my knees hurt all the time. Half of my family is type 2, and I didnt want that for myself. But now that my surgery is only 3 days away I dont know how I feel. Am I nervous or just chicken (scared to change)??? And this 5 day clear liquid diet is not making things any better. I have no energy and im dizzy all the time. HELP!!!

    Nervous Or Chicken???

    I'm doing pretty good. I only have 2.5cc in my band. I was really scared at first to get filled. Now I don't have any restrictions. I lost 27 pounds so far. How are you doing?

    How Long Have U Been Banded?

    About 7 weeks and 4days. Still trying to get the hang of it. But I wouldn't change it for the world.

    I think everyone should be numbed. But maybe I'm just a big baby. Lol
  14. Msdropinoff


    It wasn't a bad as I thought it would be. They numbed me I didn't feel a thing. I only got .5cc for a total of 2.5cc. Did u have one yet?
