    Question About Anthestia

    Being put to sleep is one of my biggest fears, along with getting a blood clot afterwards. Lapband is a very fast surgery, my surgery took less than 25 mintutes, and that included fixing a hiatal hernia. You'll be fine, stop watching those crazy movies, LOL. Let us know how it goes.

    Moods

    IMO, weight loss is so individual. I, personally, still see myself as a fat person. I see every lump and bump. Personality wise, I'm more confident and definitely, loving life more. As for others, I agree, I've witnessed people close to me who were not even considered fat or overweight, lose a few pounds and become bitch-divas, act like their "stuff" doesn't stink. Yet, I know others who have lost lots of weight and are still their sweet self, just excited and in love with their self in a good way. Weight loss is a wonderful thing, but I have seen many relationships destroyed, not by the person who lost the weight, but by the spouse that beings to cheat, because, he/she, is no longer the dominating spouse...I hope that makes sense.

    Trish, me, energy, lol, just busy, busy, busy, fortunately and blessed it's mostly fun stuff, or things I do by choice. DH and I went to a party last night, saw lots of people I hadn't seen for a while, OMG, I swear, I'm NOT bragging, but I got so many compliments about my weight loss, my hair, just pumped me up, all I could think is...."can't touch this, LOL".

    Donna, I think you're already on the same track Jetti used, small goals. Good luck with the fill. We'll talk before Wed :wink2:. Eileenie, what you doing this morning? You're usually here before now. Diane, sorry I missed your call, we rode up to Yorktown, had the top down and didn't hear the phone. Sherry, what's up girl? Betty, it's supposed to be a really good pool day here, 93, but supposed to feel like 100..yikes! Has anyone watched Emril cooking "green" on the green channel? These chefs always make everything look so easy. Have a great day ladies. Oh yes, welcome Michaele.

    Donna, u's not fat, just your innards are . Dr. T said it all depends on the inside, nothing to do with how much you have to lose. I was about the same size as you and I have the 4cc, my mom was around 240 and she has a 4cc, so it just depends. Also, the fill will help, as long as he hits the target, lol, don't know if I told you, but he missed my port on my first fill, which was HIS first fill too, without flouro. I'm so glad he only does t with flouro now. Will be back later girls, I'm on a mission to clean out some drawers today. Hugs

    Sex

    I laughed my butt off at this thread, at the time I was banded, almost 4 years ago, I had been married 36 years. Hello...that's 36 years, so I told my hubby the doctor said no sex for three months! Of course, I told him I was joking, but what a reaction.

    Good Morning Gals Trish, good luck on the fill today . Betty, I probably missed it, but when is the reduction date? Sherry, that cocktail sounds...hmmm intoxicatingly good. Kat, glad you found us, LOL. Diane, I need some numerals to match my letters. Sherry, Eileenie, whatcha up to? Any other myspace gals on here? Donna, are you still trippin...I mean on vacation? Later gals, I've been gone from work a week, computers are down, lights and power is out in parts of the office, WTF, plus lots of bills to open I'm sure. Hugs all around

    Sorry I've been missing gals, I've been at my beach house since Monday, WITHOUT without wifi hookup, but I took care of that yesterday, I signed up for that Verizon wireless, so, I'll be connected anywhere, I'm loving it. I was having a terrible case of withdrawls. I started to just sign up with my local cable company, but decided on the Verizon wireless, so I can use it anywhere we travel. Diane, thanks for catching me up on all the NJ news last night. Betty, I'm so glad you're ok, and I'm so excited for you! Just make sure they get them small enough the first time. Are you going for perky too? LOL Sherry, I love the new avatar. Waiting for Diane to post hers. Kat, where are you? Did we make you mad? Hugs all

    My cost was $16,750, (also self-pay), plus a few incidentals. I must say, insurance or not, I would do it again in a heartbeat. Dr. Terracina was my surgeon, If you decide to go to Hpt Roads WLS, tell him Pat, his first lapband patient, said hello.

    New to all this.. live in Richmond, VA

    Congratulations on your decision. I have been banded almost 4 years now and have no regrets. This is a great site for support of a types, I wish you the best.

    Hey Crispy gal, glad you stopped by. Betty, OMG, I can't believe you finally got approval, I'm soooo excited for you. I'm still trying to decide if I'm going to have mine done AGAIN, it just seems so crazy to have another reduction, with implants, but in order to get the perk I'm looking for, that's what it's gonna take . I'll check back later, came home with a great buzzzzzzzzzzzzzz last evening, hubby went out for a quick rider on the jetski, came back with Zac, 2.5 yo gson, yep, to spend the night. His dad was out on our other boat, which he came and took out while we were gone, and ASSumed I'd love to have him spend the night. Like I've said b4, I love my gkids, but I hate all nighters, because I keep my room 67 and don't sleep worth a flip, because I spend all night covering them up. Ok, gotta run, catcha ya later gals, hagd! KAT, where are you? I hope you're ok.

    Good Morning Gal Pals! Eileenie, so sorry you're having reflux, Tums, the smooth ones, kick it for me, although, I just get the heart burn ache in the back when I go to bed, I don't actually get the reflux. Diane, we'll have to get together and get those letters, are you and Steve taking the boat out tomorrow? If so, stop by, but either way, keep an eye and ear on the weather. Sherry, they serve the breakfast HOT, when you eat out :scared2:. Gotta run get dressed, going to the Colonial Downs Horse Track today, wish me luck!
