    October 2012 Bandsters

    Your doctor should have given you strict directions as to what you can eat and when. I am 11 days out and on liquids but not all clear. I can have strained cream soups, sugar free pudding, jello, smooth yogurt... I will be starting pured foods on tuesday. Farina, cream of wheat, soft cooked eggs, pured veggies, also pured meat. My list from the nutritionist is very detailed and date specific. Even if your dr didn't give you clear directions...you should not be eating hamburger helper anyway...too much fat and sodium. Please get to you dr and talk to them. I would hate to see you start your journey going backwards. please keep us informed.

    Nervous Or Chicken???

    Nadine, I couldn't wait to see how you handled your surgery. I wanted to skip ahead and see but all the posts were interesting. I am glad you did well. I had a band with plication on 10/9/12. I didn't think they would release me from the hospital because I couldn't drink what they suggested I should. I also had a hiatal huernia repair. Once I was home it was great! I was more comfortable and was able to drink most of what they suggested and in the first 5 days lost 8 lbs. My dr puts us on stages of diets and I am getting ready for stage 3 on tuesday. I have an appt with him on Thursday and I cannot "weight" to see the numbers! I was talking to my son this morning and we both realized my ankles are thinner! I will enjoy following your journey. Best of luck to you!
