    Cancer/chemo and lap-band?

    I have been banded over 3.5 years....At 43 i was just diagnosed with breast cancer....after 3 lumpectomies I am now cancer free....I start 6 weeks of radiation treatment on Jan 6. not how I had planned starting my new year out! But it is what it is....I am still having a hard time dealing with it all. I have no plans of being unfilled. Love, love my band! Thanks for sharing your stories, Joanne and Shelley.
  2. I did a lot of research on my plastics and I ended up going to Mexico for mine. I had excellent results...I had full lower body lift (tummy and butt), inner thigh lift and lipo on thighs for about $7,000.
  3. Almost 3 years for me....No complications until now!! Band suddenly got super tight along with reflux at night...getting an unfill May 9th...if it doesn't get rid of my problems...Upper GI will be next to rule out a slippage! I love my band and I can't imagine not having it....I have not gained any weight...I Have lost more than half of my beginning weight...whoohoo!!

    Possible Slippage?

    I am also having acid reflux at night. Its been on and off for last 5 months or so. I assumed that all the stress in my life was making my band tighter. Some days I can eat and others I cant. Today I had about half of an over easy egg along with about 1/4 cup of hash browns....ate at 9;30....didnt pass through my band until 4:30!! Is my band too tight.....or do I have a slip?? I am getting an unfill next Thursday, to see if it helps. My last fill was a year ago!

    How Can I Afford Plastic Surgery?

    I am not sure how they do their tummy tucks, as I had lower body lift. I stayed for 14 days, my choice. The rates for their recovery boutique were cheaper the longer you stayed. I paid $100/day that included all meals, snacks, and 24 hour nurses.
  7. I had inner thighs done and lower body lift....It sounds like you are doing great! i also was never in any pain...it was mostly discomfort....besides i was pretty numb for weeks...lol I can't wait to see your results. I love, love mine!!
  8. Happy 43rd Birthday danielle b!

    Tummy tuck tomorrow ..

    You will do great....I had total lower body lift...my incision was all the way around. I was in discomfort but not in much pain. Most of my incision area was numb, so really couldn't feel the pain. I also wore a binder....in my opinion it helps A LOT!! If I was swelled up during the day...I would throw that on at night and swelling gone in the morning. Also, It helps protect you incision. Good luck and keep us posted

    Divorce After Losing Weight!

    Thanks for all the advice. I was starting to feel a little guilty today. He went to my daughters work to talk to her, and he started crying. So a part of me was feeling bad....but I know, if he moved back, the problems would still exist!! I am trying to do what is best for me.......
