  1. HELLO!!!!! Im Cherita I had my surgery 2/23/2010!! wohoooo ok. Down 60lbs new woredrobe and all BUT I still feel very large. Eventhough I know I have lost a good amount of weight I still have issues with the smaller me. I know that is backwards but I was just wondering if anyone else have issues with their new appearance similar to mine. Thanks!

    Okay Okay... bandster hell?!?

    Im on liquids, Haven't been hungry but I have been drinking protein shakes. I'm doing pretty bad just one a day and alot of water.
  5. I was banded on the 23rd of Feb. I arrived at the hospital at 5:30 AM and was told to give a urine sample to confirm I was not pregnant..guess what.. I was so nervous I couldn't go! It took an hour and a half to finally go. Just in time for my surgery to have the green light. I dont remember much going in because they gave me my "margarita" as I was leaving the pre-op area. I woke up around 10 AM and asked the nurse was it in there..lol she laughed at me and I went back to sleep. I woke up again around 11 AM in my room. I wasn't in any pain but my throat hurt like hell. I started coughing up blood and I was told that was normal because of the breathing tube. Later that day I went downstairs to get an xray with the barium swallow.............YUCK! I stayed in the hospital for a 2 days and now im at home. I have to say listening to most of the negitive stories on here about the pains and what not I was expecting the worst. Its really not that bad I have had a few gas pains but nothing major. I have not been hungry so I basically have been forcing myself to drink the protein shakes. WELL.... thats about it! good luck to everyone!

    Cost With Insurance

    OKAY! I have Aetna the Bariatric max is $10,000 for my policy. I ended up paying my doctor's office $1,300. Then I went to the hospital for my pre-op and I was hit with a bill for $11,650.. Yeah I know! That's the cost of a whole new band. BUT apparently thats the hospital fee's..
