    Lap Band To Bulimia

    I began forcing my food back up not chewing well and getting stuck. I began eating the wrong foods and feeling guilty and bringing back up. It became very easy to regurgitate and to stop doing this I had my band unfilled most of the way so I can stop the habit. I didn't think I would go back to being starved and eating everything in site again. I gained 65 lbs back. I hope only a fill or 2 now will get me to where I should be. I really have to penalty for over eating and never have, but I got over filled and when I got stuck I couldn't eat, drink or take my medicine. so this is my bulimic story. I guess I need to do what I should have done 2 years ago and see a counselor and find a support group.

    day 14

    Back to work today, could have stayed off longer but without having any pain couldn't really justify it to myself. I am down 35lbs as of sunday 8/23. Feeling great. Started mushy foods today. I can't believe how easy all this has been. the only pain I have is the pain of paying for this out of pocket. :thumbup:

    8/14 3 days post op

    Surgery went fine, instead of narcotics they gave me a marcaine pump to keep me numb. Took it out a day early because of leakage but so far I have had no pain. Not getting too terribly hungry. I weighed today and lost another 11 lbs which brings me to 27lbs over 2 weeks.:wink:
