    Tomorrow is my big day!

    The level of pain and length of time is different for each person. My most painful day was day two after surgery. Each day after that was progressively better. I was feeling at 95% by day 6 post surgery. Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App
  3. Tomorrow is my big day...lap band surgery first thing tomorrow morning! I'm excited and nervous at the same time. I was able to lose 16 lbs pre-op. Started pre-op diet at 229, down to 213. My goal is to get to 140, however I'll take whatever the band gives me. Anyone else start with these stats? Where are you now? Are my goals realistic? How soon did you get to 60 lbs lost? Your help is greatly appreciated! Only positive comments please. Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

    Lost Restriction

    Oh man! I hate to hear that, but remember we are just starting this journey. No one said you would have great results from beginning...remember how the successful ones say, give it time. Try to identify the strong signs of hunger as a sign that you're not there yet, but it's coming! Slip ups may happen, results may not come as fast as we like...rest assure knowing your time is just beginning...there will be lots of wisdom to share with newbies...hang tight the lessons are coming. I hope my msg inspired you to hold on, it's coming. Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

  6. Just having a shake makes me nauseous. Looks like I might need to divide it up into smaller portions. Anyone else have this issue? Even Water makes me nauseous. Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

    True Results

    I got the same email B_B. I'm not happy about TR closing their doors as I picked their office due to close proximity to my office, less missed work. But can't do much about the office closing, but I'm glad I'll still have same surgeon looking after me. I too don't know what they will charge for office visits, however, if more than reasonable, I'll be talking to surgeon about it. Who is your surgeon B_B?

    2nd Fill Tomorrow

    I'm thinking it was something like a 24 HR thing. Feeling fine now. I'm just having to really work hard on eating really small meals...my fill seems to restrict me to about half of what I was eating. 1/2 of 4oz is hardly worth the effort of eating. Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

    2nd Fill Tomorrow

  11. Has anyone else experienced pain on the left side of your upper and lower abdomen? Its intermittent pain, but pain nonetheless that I've never experienced before. I'm thinking it's gas, as when I press on it the pain goes away, but quickly returns shortly after. I have been dealing with diarrhea the past 24 hrs, so could be that too, but not sure.
  12. I started taking stool softener daily, after 3 days, no more cramps. And BMs are normal again. Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

    So here I go....

    Dr Todd Wilson did my pre op visit. He was great too. I was having trouble with my Uber app and he took the time to help me out. I was disappointed he wasn't doing my surgery but I met Dr Erik Wilson and loved him just as much. All great ppl there! Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

    I'm in Houston, 3 days post-op. My surgeon was Dr Erik Wilson, LOVED him and the entire staff. I had a really relaxed and calming experience. Would recommend using him time and time again. Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App

    @ queenbee75 Do you know if the shoulder pain is due to gas from surgery? Or caused from something else? Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App
