  1. Having the lapband has changed my life. I would recomend it for anyone. I feel so much better. I still have a little ways to go. I have 38 pounds left to loose. I will get there. My surgeon and her staff have been wonderful through the entire 7 months. Good luck to everyone who plans to go through with the lapband.


  2. No I am not to nervous yet I will probably be nervous come Sunday and Monday morning. I have never had any type of surgery accept for Laproscopic on my knee. So this will be an expierence. Yes I have to do a liquid diet until I go in. I had to start it on Sat. ten days before. It is ok not so bad I guess. I have four children though so it is hard to cook for them and smell it. I am aloud cottage cheese as long as it is below 15 grams of carbohydrates and sugar free Jello and sugar free pudding and sugar free popsicles. I don't really like those very much though. I bought pizza for my kids last night because my husband was working over and man that sure did smell good. Well good luck with your surgery on Monday. What time is your surgery? Mine is at 10:45 so I have to be there at 7:45am. I am so excited to be thin again. I can't wait.

  3. Well after 6 months of my physicians followed diet and exercise, and being diagnosed with sleep apnea I was finally approved for Surgery last week. I am a little nervous. I just hope it all goes well. I started the liquid diet on Sat. Well I can have any sugar free pudding, sugar free popsicles, sugar free Jello, broth, cream Soups, cottage cheese as long as the carbs don't go over 15grams. It is going to be a long ten days well seven now. I am down 2 and half luckily. Any advice on how to get through these next few days. I know there is a light at the end of this tunnel:rolleyes2:.

  4. I am so sorry you have not been approved by the insurance. I know I just was approved last week and I have been going through the steps since May of 07. My insurance required a 6 month physician followed diet before they will approve it. So I started that in June and finished on Dec. 22nd. I also have sleep apnea and just found out that my surgery is going to be on Feb. 11th. So just keep praying and god will let it happen. Good luck.
