    You are healing. Could be gas. As for heart burn, don't lay down right after eating or drinking

    My first fill was 4 wks 3cc in my 10cc band. Second fill was 6 wks, he added 1.5
  4. I did and yall are right. It was a cup instead of an egg. Ty!
  5. I am close to having the same situation. Banded 9/20 lost 28 lbs. Last 2 wks only lost 2 lbs. Got my second fill today and i think this will help.

  7. I see everyone suggest it but its high in grams of sugar. Why does everyone suggest Greek vs plain?

  10. Fyi. My gas and shoulder pain started until day 7 for some reason. It lasted 5 days on and off. Felt like stabs under my left arm in my ribs, in my neck and down my arm.

    Second Consultation!

    I don't understand. Lap band fixes acid refux per my doc and did fix mine Like he said. But bypass isn't bad. My husband is having bypass Nov 7. He chose it over lap band because there is no maintenance .

    I think your doing great. I don't think we are supposed to cut good food out for life. The band offers us help with portion control. I wouldn't worry about having a taste. Sounds like your making the necessary changes that your supposed to.
  19. I had tomatoe blended..avocado blended.. And Brussels sprouts blended.. But i kinda feel like blending is defeating the purpose... Is it? You can blend all the foods the band won't let us have... We should be cautious

    Is Blending Cheating?

    Im asking if blending is cheating for us all. Not what stage i am in.
