    Feeling Blue

    valentine...i too was concerned because i wasn't losing any weight and the people on this forum are right...you should concentrate on healing right now and don't beat yourself up. i really put myself through the wringer when i should have been more concerned with getting better.the people on this forum are right and they are always full of great info....chin up! you are doing great! i have lost 10 lbs since my band and that is better results than any of the things i have tried in the past. all the best!

    you go stocky!!! you are going to do great. i am going for my first fill on 3/23/2006 and i am really looking forward to it. i can still eat way too much...even though i don't. i have lost 10 lbs and my surgeon tells me i will lose much more after my first fill. i hope so ...i keep reading these stories about people losing 20 and 30+lbs the 1st week and i get really discouraged. why is it some people lose so much before the 1st fill ? anyone out there with some answers?

    breast reduction questions

    yes, a good surgeon will talk with you about how many cc's you would like removed and then he will tell you if that is realistic. i had mine done in 1998 and it is the best thing i ever did for myself....lapband runs a very close second!

    What was your turning point?

    going into a size 16 and a comment from one of my daughters friends "your mother is beautiful.....but she'd be more beautiful if she weren't fat"...not sure why that bothered me so much but it did.
  11. hi nicole, i was banded 3/3/2006 so i am a little over 1 week post-op and i really don't think it was that bad. i only had real pain for a few hours following the surgery and the next morning i had some moderate pain but the pain meds(i was given darvocet)took care of it really well. the real problem was the gas immediatley following surgery....but again....meds really helped(i took chewable gas-x)me alot. my final word on lap band sx...not bad at all. good luck to you and hang in there. you should really visit this sight post-operatively, it is really encouraging.

    hi stocky...i was not in alot of pain when i woke up...just felt woozy. i had pain a few hours later but mostly from the gas.....you can feel it all the way into your shoulders! make sure you have plenty of chewable gas remedy on hand. the following morning i woke up with pain but not severe. don't worry! you are going to feel fine. i was banded on friday and back to work(desk duty)on monday. it has been a week now and i feel great except for that pesky gas bloated feeling which is getting better. hang in there!!!
