  1. I am die hard diet Coke fanatic! I need to break that habit right now! So that is it not so hard after my surgery. Please share what your favorite non-carbonated beverage is! I love variety and hope to find something I like equally as well as my Diet Coke! Thanks for your input!

    1 week Post Op

    It is very hard for me to believe that I have been banded for 1 week already! Where does the time go?? I am almost at 100%, still have a tad bit of gas pain that settles in my left shoulder occassionaly, but when it does, it hurts! A tiny bit of tenderness in my belly button, but otherwise feeling great! I returned to work on Post Op Day 5 and it has definetly helped to be up moving around. I was certain I would be able to feel my port, but I can not. I had a dream last night that when I went for my post op (which isn't until next Wednesday), that they told me I didn't have a band! Oh my, it woke me up from a sound sleep! LOL! Just curious if others know exactly where their band is?? I read the boards and blogs diligently and it is very amazing to me the variances in post op diet by surgeon. My surgeon requires: Day 1-14 -- thin liquids Day 15-30 -- thick liquids Day 30+ -- soft foods To say I am sick of just liquids is putting it mildly, but I am not and will not give in! I am going to follow the rules to a T to be sure I am given myself every available avenue to be successful! I so want something crunchy LOL! Not too many crunch liquids out there! I will end with my stats -- I am pretty happy! Week 1 loss 4.8 Total loss 14.4 (since starting preop diet) Hugs, Jane
