After going to a lap band seminar back in May I was convinced this was what I wanted.  I also had a friend who also did it with me making it so much easier.  We spent six months going to classes and finally on Dec 14, 2009 I had my surgery.  During Surgery my blood pressure went sky high and after surgery I had dry heaves for two days.  I was so nauseated that I couldnt stand it.  My labs were crazy and my vital signs unstable so I stayed an extra day in the hospital.  The second day I wondered really what had I done to myself.   But the surgeon talked to me and told me everyone is different and everyone experiences everything differently and that I would start feeling better.  Yes I do feel better just 6 days post op and I am glad I had it done.
