    Purée food

    What are you planning to start with I did the ricotta bake but added chicken in there and blended it it was good way better then a shake granted I like mushy food in general

    Purée food

    So I was cleared today to start purées they said I can have 2oz portions I couldn’t even finish that anyone else experience this
  3. This is what my surgeon is recommending for me to do has anyone had it and what exactly is it I have not been able to find much information about it
  4. Hello everyone so I had the lapband years ago I don’t remember the year to be honest but I want to say at least 9 years I never really lost much weight and it always gave me problem to this day I sometimes choke on water so I want to do a revision my doctor recommends to do bypass so I guess I want to hear from people who have had a revision from lapband to bypass
  5. Let me tell you’d I just finished 2 weeks and goodness I feel like I have been to war yes I know that’s dramatic to say but it has been such a mental battle especially knowing that I’m on a 6 week liquid diet the last 4 days have been extra hard aunt flow came to town and good god all I wanted was food and to nap all day and I couldn’t do either one of those things and no one else in my life understands my struggle so I guess I’m just here to vent and to tell anyone else that it’s not easy but you can do this just take it day by day Side note I chose premier protein as my shake and I drink 5 a day I find that cookies and cream and chocolate are horrible and the caramel and chocolate peanut butter are really good I also do half vanilla with half caffe latte that’s also really good bananas and cream is decent strawberries and cream is ok and peaches and cream is meh I just ordered cinnamon roll I hope that one tastes good
  6. So sorry for your pain and I’m glad to see you are getting better did they tell u why you had blockage was it a side effect of the surgery or was it something different

    6 week Pre op liquid diet

    The issue is my BMI is really high and he wants me to lose 50 pounds before surgery at the end of the day I did this to myself It’s just a struggle knowing I’m almost done with 3 weeks and that I have another 3 weeks I was mentally ready for 2 weeks not 6
  11. Surgery day is April 26 and I started my liquid diet today I have a very high BMI I can’t say I’m really hungry since it’s 5 shakes a day one every 3 hours I definitely think my struggle will be mental just wondering anyone else had to do an extra long pre op diet?

    Lapband revision

    Thank u for responding how are you feeling today also how is your progress I’m excited and nervous I’m looking at surgeon February

    Lapband revision

    Thank u for replying sadly my BMI is extremely high that’s why they recommend the bypass they suggest to keep the band in so down the line I use use it to give me a extra push I don’t think they understand that when something gets stuck it literally feels like a knife is slicing me from the inside
