Hello Everyone !! My name is Andrea. I joined this site to decide if I wanted to get the Lap Band surgery. I have been a member of this site for about 2 months. Happy to say I have decided to have the surgery. 05/22/10 I had the Lap Band surgery. Today is day 3 post op. I am very sore and have been battling a slight fever. Other then that I feel ok. I am so excited to get started on the new life style I have choosen for myself. I am 34 years ols and weight 192 day of surgery. I lost 7 lbs on pre- op diet. I was very very excited about that. I have not gotten on the scale yet. I dont plan to until a week or two from now. I am a mother of 2 great boys. I love them with all my heart and I want to get healthy so I can be there for them. I was dx with Type II Diebates last month. That was another deciding factor in getting this surgery. OK, well I dont have much energy so I will write more soon.  XOXOXOXOX
