  1. I'm done 30 lbs! I love love love my Lapband! ❤️
  2. I was banded on the 16th. The first 3 days were easy, but yesterday and today have been pretty rough. I can't even drink water without pain and have to burp it up. Is this normal for the first week?

    1st Post Op Week

    I called the surgeon this morning and they wanted to see me immediately. So I'm in the waiting room. They mentioned I need an unfill. I thought we didn't have any saline in our band the first month??? I will soon find out and hopefully feel better soon. I tried hot tea this morning and even that caused discomfort after time.

    I can see a difference! How much have you lost total? I was just banded on the 16th.
  10. My surgeon wants me on clear liquids for a week and then I can have cream soups and malt o meal. Has it been easy to eat or does it hurt?
  11. I feel good too. I've been in pj pants and a hoodie. I'm already tired of broth lol. I'm so excited about this new journey. Have you have any trouble with your liquids?
  12. I was banded Thursday too. How are y'all feeling?
