    No weight loss weeks 5-9 post op

    I also had a revision from Band to DS. I'm 8 week PostOp & I went to my followup appt & only lost 30#. I'm all excited cause I don't know when I've ever lost 30# in a year- let alone 8 weeks! My Dr said that it was good cause it's giving my body to react to the weight loss. I am loosing inches. Just keep up the water & protein!! Let your body heal & do it's thing! [emoji7]
  2. My large incision site finally healed at 6 weeks. It kept having a small scab, then it would come off. Then scab over again.

    Cigna Insurance Approval

    I have Cigna & they gave me 30 days to have procedure. My surgeon was booked up so it was right at the 30 days!
  4. It could be the watermelon juice!!!! It happened to me as well right after surgery & then found out that watermelon causes that sneaky stomach bloat!! I didn't have issues before surgery with watermelon. But after. No Go!! [emoji51]
  5. Maybe you're ovulating??

    Same thing happened to me. Ins said they had no record. However, I got a letter in the mail & Dr office called me with approval that next Monday.
  8. I know that I had a pretty major surgery. I had a revision from Lapband to DS. I'm actually starting to feel "normal". But, I am still having the incision pains or feel like I have to hold myself when I walk. I guess I'm wondering if it's normal.

    I'm an emotional wreck

    My hubby went out of town a day after I came home from surgery! I came to this group a lot for support. And I played a lot of mindless bubble popping games lol

    What does it feel to be "full"

    After the 2oz of the beef stew "soup", I think it was just a lot of gas that I didn't expect! I have been on such a bland diet & then introduced something new with spices. Boy, I sure did some walking, sitting on balance ball, & GasX to try to get the uncomfortable feeling to go away! About an hour later I was relieved from the bloat/pain feelings. [emoji28]
  11. I was banded several years & knew what me "full" feeling was (tightening in the chest). I know I'm 7 days PreOp of the revision to DS. So, my neighbor brought me some beef stew "juice". I had my 2 oz cup worth. But I feel kinda bloated. Guess I'm not familiar with new signs from my body.

    Behavioral evaluation?

    My behavioral evaluation was a packet of 600 questions asking if I'm "likely or less likely" to do things. Kinda like an aptitude for a job. [emoji58]

    I went to Dr today for my 1 wk PostOp appt. everything looks great! However, the itchy is from me having an allergic reaction to the dermabond!!! I got a steroid shot! I'm doing better now!! [emoji108][emoji28]

    I had my gallbladder removed several years ago after I had my Lapband In 2009.
