    fifties and pre-op surgery support

    Hello, I am sure that I am not much help in answering your questions but, I was banded on Thursday. I am a 57 year old woman. I decided that now is the time to do it while I can still get my "stuff" together and look good and get some exercise. I guess we can follow the progress of each other. I am hoping to at least feel like my old self by next week!!

    6 Days Post Op

    Good morning folks.... this is my first post-op posting. I had the band put in on 10-11-12..sorta cool hu? So far, as ridiculous as it seems, my left shoulder hurts more than any other part of my body. It seems that a gas pocket can form in your shoulder. Currently, I am having my first cup of coffee so, the world seems a bit better a place. Right now I feel about 50 pounds heavier than before the surgery. Anyone know how long it takes before you begin to feel normal? I go back to work on Monday... that should take my mind off of my stomach,
  4. I am due at the hospital in 11 hours! How do I feel? Well, sort of terrified! I am not soo afraid of the surgery but now that the reality of it is just around the clock..... I hope I can handle it. I had a glass of wine with dinner. When I was done, I poured the rest of the bottle down the drain. How weird! I am going on a cruise in two weeks (clearly planned before my surgery!!) and the doctors assures me I will be fine. It's funny, how you can want something so badly but, when the reality of it is near.... careful what you wish for. Well Good luck to all of us who will be changing our lives tomorrow!!
