    I have a really large bruise about the size of my foot under my belly button near my pubic bone. Did anyone else experience this post op? I have the regular bruises around my port and incision but the one by my pubic bone has me concerned.:thumbup:

    does your fill doctor do this??

    My doctor's office offers it both ways. The first two fills I had they did by feeling for it. I returned for my third fill complaining that I had no restriction. He took me to the hospital to do it under flouroscopy. I turns out they missed with the first two fills. I must perfer the flouroscopy because then atleast you know they got it in properly.

    Hey everyone! It's great to hear everyone is doing so well. I had my first post op appointment today. I am down 10 pounds since my surgery a week ago! I was so excited! I too am experiencing the growies. It's amazing how much noise my stomach can make. OMG Morgan from the OR...after I read your post about the "don't trust the fart phase" I could not stop laughing. I feel your pain and thought that was the best quote. My doctor told me I can officially start pureed and soft foods. I am excited but apprehensive. I will let you know how it goes. Keep up the good work everyone!!!!

    Any December '08 Bandsters?

    I started on 4 medifast shakes a day with one meal that consists or 4 oz. of protein 2 cups lettuce and 1/2 cup green veggies. I must also incorporate 2 tbls. of oil during the day. That is easy right now because I just put it on my salad. Starting in November I will be on 5 shakes a day with no meal. I will still need to get in the 2 tbls. of oil however because I guess that helps with vitamin absorption. That part will be a bit tricky. 2 tbls. or oil in my shakes does not sound too appealing but oh well if it's what I have to do....I will do it.

    Any December '08 Bandsters?

    My surgery date is scheduled for December 10th. I can hardly wait!!! The holidays are going to be tough but I know I can do it. I have been on a version of the pre-op diet since Sept. 16th and all is going well. I am glad I have this support group to help me through this.
