    Support Group For Dfw Banders!!

    Hi everyone. I was banded 12-12-12. Was just wondering if this group is still together. I live a little south of DALLAS. Had surg done at true results in Richardson. Go for first fill on the 10 th of jan. I'm so ready for a fill I have no restriction at all. Is anyone else going thru this???
  6. You will do great. I was scared at first too. I'm 16 days post op and I'm doing good. I'm 56 yrs old and felling back to normal. I follow my dr orders and work it!!! I just started on mushies and dang food taste good!!! Glad u did well and don't be anxious. It's all gonna b ok!!!!
  7. Welcome. I too am a new bander as of 12-12-12. U can't believe every word u read. I found out the hard way. U have to do as your dr tells you and especially what your body tells you. There r a lot of good tips on here but u do what u feel is best for you. There's a lot of seasoned banders on here but it's their bodies not yours. I'm not by any means being mean. And I read all the post but I do what's best for me. WELCOME AND CONGRATS!!! U will do great!!!
  8. I know this may b a really dumb question. But if you stretch out your new pouch then can u not eat for a day or two and it go back to small again???

    Gas pains

    It will get better. It's been 10 days since my surg and I still have some shoulder pain a little. But the first few days were BAD. I did all the above and it all helped. Hang in there!!!
  10. Oh I sure don't wanna start on liquids again. These past 10 days have bout killed me. I'm not screwing this up !!!
  11. No I hope I have not. I'm still on liquids. It just came to my mind and just asked. Oh heaven NO I'm doing exactly what the dr told me too. It was just a silly thing that came to my head!!!
  12. I was banded 12-12-12. I'm starting to feel almost normal again. The gas pains are almost all gone. As far as the bathroom thing... I had to finally take some milk of magnesium and it worked like a charm. I feel 100% better after I got that part moving again. It even released all the gas in my shoulder. Know it may sound crazy but it feels great. Of course I called dr to ask if I could take it and I'm glad I did. From my PRE op diet till today I'm down 20 lbs !!!

    No Drinking While Eating

    I was banded on 12-12-12. My dr said tiny sips with food is fine. But this 3x a day shake is about to kill me. I can barely get n 2. But I'm sipping broths and baby foods. So far so good. Just want the GAS PAINS to stop uhhh
  15. Had my surg yesterday 12/12/12. It went well. Had hernia repair also. But this gas is a @:; it's in my left shoulder. I walk a lot. Use GASX and drink lots of water. And use heating pad. So glad when this part is over.
