Banded on June 21, 2010I am new to the banding, I was banded on yesterday. I was very nervous and
afraid. I am still in the same state of mind. I am sore and filled with gas.
I made it home about yesterday about 1 pm. very sore. I did take my meds and
cat napped for the rest of the day. i drinked water and a little juice to take
the pill down for naseau. I crushed my pill, don't know if it was the right
thing to do or not. I walk every now and than and I do the breaths in the
spiral. As the days progress, the inhaling into the tube is becoming harder.
This morning I got up out of bed around 5am. I walked around before heading to
the bathroom. Its hard sitting down on the toilet and getting up. I really wish
I could have a bowel movement but don't seen like that going to happen. The gas
moving inside of me is getting the best of me, I have been chewing Gas X like it
candy. i have been sleeping with a heat pad, it helps.
I drink some water today and half of a protein shake that's all I have had.
Waiting to see what the rest of this day holds.
