  3. I'm a teacher and feel the same way. I always keep a bag of cut up protein bars so I can pop it in my mouth chew and keep going on hectic days. The only part that sucks is drinking because when I have a minute to drink something its usually the same time I have to eat. So I eat instead of drink and try to get in most my water after work. Scares me sometimes because I dont want to get dehydrated.

    Why so negative???

    Its to be expected. Lapband is unknown for some people and people fear the unknown and changes. Some will celebrate, some will condemn. As is life.

    incision pain

    Some people just have port pain but personally my pain was similar to you (fine at first, got worse) and it ended up being an infection and it took 2 months to clear up. Better to stop it earlier. You can ask the doc to run some test and see what the infection is (staph, bacteria, ect).

    Hair Loss

    Well for the past couple of weeks my hair as been coming out more and more. And I was in denial until this past weekend when I remembered cleaning out my brush Wednesday and was full of hair again Saturday. So I got some biotin, got more multivitamins, some protein shots, biotin pills, biotin shampoo&conditioner. Then I decided that my hair was falling out largely due to the fact that I was tugging on all my tangles. So I decided to get my hair cut. So today I have 12 inches less of hair. freaked out a bit but I am OK with it. Lol See the before and afters

    Boredom at its BEST!

    Once there was a young man - whose eating was getting out of hand - He ate all day - and some will say - he needed to get the lap band --------------------------------------- He didnt listen to the talk even though he couldnt walk he stuffed his face with ice cream and cake and still ignored the lapband --------------------------------------- Then came the day His kids wanted to play He tried to get up and run but after 5 minutes he was done! he decided to get the lap band ------------------------------------ A few years down the road He doesnt carry such a load give him a hand! he got to wONEderland all because of the lap band
  9. The band makes me freak out about things but I had acid reflux and night coughs BEFORE being banded when I got sick. Just another wonderful thing to add to my list. But it is always best to rule out anything band related

    Do you miss favorite foods

    Same as the fellow posters - I haven't given anything up. I do miss soda not because of taste but because of the convenience

    Calorie requirement

    I eat 1400- 1500 calories daily. Any less my weight loss stalls. Your metabolism is a factor in calories as well

    Purpose? 1) I was wondering why you signed on to this site? To keep an eye out for those who I have made friends with and chat. Also to read anything that sticks out in forums to see if I can learn from it or help someone else 2) Why are you still here after a year? Is hasnt been a year and thus the rest of the questions are not valid for me to reply to
