  1. I am just about 25 and I was banded when I was 23. I have lost about 90 lbs.
  2. Yea. They are a great place. I got myself too tight though and I really had no idea I could come in anytime for an emergency unfill. I just let myself be sick and I figured I would lose the weight and it would loosen and it did...but when I was in last time I told them and they asked why I didnt come in for an unfill and I told them I didn't know I could. I kinda also wish they would have told me about throwing up...I think I am a little prone to it, but I am happy all in all. I've lost 80 lbs in a year. :redface:

    post your before & during/after pictures

    I was 230 when I started and now I am just under a year and 150 lbs. :redface: I think I could be a success story someday.
  4. I wish they would have told me more about getting food stuck and the throwing up. I ate last night and I went to bed when it still hadn't went down and I woke up coughing up flem and it's horrible...
  5. I was in love with egg drop soup!! I also enjoyed clam chowder and my ensure shakes.

    1st fill

    They can feel it and when they insert it they have to apply more pressure to get through the port. I actually felt the vibrations of it going into the port.

    1st fill

    My first fill was also today and It went smoothly...I need to call and ask how many cc's i have. lol I'm curious. But ya, I thought it felt funny when they did it, but it didn't hurt too much.:thumbup:

    Should I be now?

    I know some start early, but I don't know if I should be going now. All of the stitches and glue are gone from my incisions and I am about a month into being banded. My first fill is Friday. Should I maybe try the gym now? I live on an air force base, so it's free. My friend does these Zoomba dancing classes and they look like they work the core...I just don't wanna hurt myself. I sometimes feel sore from bending too much.

    1st fill

    My first fill is this Fri and my surgery was Sept 28th. I am scared and excited. I am hoping it will at least help me not feel like I am starving myself. lol I had m&m's last night....my neighbors invite us for card games and they had candy and I ate some. It was laced with guilt. lol

    Soft foods?

    Yea I just need to go back to mushies...im having a bad night. -.-
  11. Ya so I'm in soft foods and I had tortilla chips with a bean dip the other day and I am fine because I chew very well. Why is it so important to have soft foods? Is it okay if you chew well. I also have had chicken, but it was pretty mushy. I dunno I have just been struggling with the soft food thing and I needed a break. :biggrin: i hope i didn't mess anything up. I had surgery Aug. 28th...and I am on regular foods next week sometime. I just want some advise I guess.

    Where is everyone from????

    I am in Vegas, but I am from Florida. I am 2 weeks post op and have lost 9 lbs. lol
  13. I was also banded 6 days ago from today and it hurts a bit to take a deep breath i think its just the stomach muscles healing though. I dunno.
  14. I have tricare, so I dunno if i'm staying the night, but that would be fun. heh I dunno why, but i like hospitals. XD I am very excited now. :biggrin:
