    Easy breakfast ideas!

    before being banded,i was the biggest breakfast person,it was my favorite meal!!! but,since being banded,no matter how hard i try,even no matter what time i wake up....i cannot eat breakfast....i am up at 5am, 5 days a week...i have found that at around 9-10am,i can tolerate a greek yogurt,but even that,i have to eat slowly!! have you tried greek yogurt? or oatmeal(sugar free)?

    im going to cancun in august and have had the same concerns! m not worried about the plane so much as what im gonna be able to eat! im thinking of getting a small unfill before i go,just so when we are out eating,i wont be running for the bathroom to vomit!!
  4. when i was first banded,after i healed,my port would throb if i lifted something heavy,bent down quickly or tried to lay on my stomach....now,7 months later,i hardly ever get that.

    Miserable inside.

    first of all,congrats on getting the surgery!! second of all,you are only 2 weeks post op,still not able to eat normally,prob on pain meds,still uncomfortable and gassy....with all of that going on,ofcourse you are gonna have regrets!!!! i remember having them as well...all i kept thinking was,wtf did i get myself into? lol....i was banded 7 months ago and lost 95 lbs so far....so,looking back,was it worth it?? YES!!!!! right now,you should just be concentrating on getting a lot of rest,walking when u can and giving your body a chance to heal!!! and believe me,the day you are able to eat solids again,your outlook will change! my first real meal after surgery was scrambled eggs with cheese,and i thought i was in heaven!!! lol good luck on your journey!!!
  9. my surgeon says 2 days liquids,2 days soft foods,then reg foods...and thats for an unfill too

    Is This Normal?

    im not havin any pain....i had a fill a nonth ago,drank the glass of water and was fine,went home and had half a glass of iced tea and ended up vomiting for 2 hrs!! then when i laid down to sleep,felt like i was choking! after 2 days,that feeling went away,but still wasnt able to eat anything!! a week went by,and i was able to hold down a little....its gotten better but still not great... my typical day...coffee in morning,greek yogurt at about 10,cup of noodle soup at 1230,and i havent been able to eat anything else after lunch...i thought that maybe thats what being in the green zone was....but im eating nothing and not losing either,so i figure i must be too tight! the 1st 3 days after my fill,i lost 11 lbs,but that was because i couldnt eat or drink anything without it coming back up! i havent lost a lb since!!

    what to eat ?

    scrambled eggs with a little bit of cheese tasted like heaven once i was allowed soft foods!!!

    i can eat burgers just fine,as long as i eat slowly and chew...as for other meat,i had a stuck episode with steak not long after my surgery,so i have avoided steak,london broil,etc,,since...chicken is ok if its very moist
