Looking for March 2010 bandsters threads



Recommended Posts

I am so excited and nervous too. My surgery date is March 10th.:wink: Right now I am working through my 14 day Pre-op diet. Finished the last of the pre-admission paperwork and testing today. It sounds silly, but I am exhausted! I think it was a stressful day and I just didn't realize it.:eek:

I too have a date of March 8th. Excited and nervous at the same time. Do you have to do a pre-op diet?

Do you mind me asking what you are taking for your pre-op diet. I have to start mine in 2 weeks for 2 weeks and I'm intersted in knowing what you liked and what you didn't. Good luck and God bless. Eileen

I'm going in on March 1st! I can't believe it's this Monday already! I'm definitely getting a little anxious as this is my first surgery ever. Reading everyone else's banding stories has been helpful.

As for my pre-op diet, it's 6 sugar free Carnation Instant Breakfast shakes per day. I can have up to two cups of veggies, some low sodium broth, or sugar free Jello if I'm still feeling hungry. (Some days I do, some days I don't.)

Is anyone else going in on March 1st?

My pre-op diet is for 2 weeks and consists of up to 5 hi Protein slim fast shakes or bars a day ( I am using Atkins since it is high protein and tastes good). I am also allowed one meal a day of 5 oz lean protein and 2 cups of vegetables. Absolutely no starchy veggies. Also making sure to get in my Water minimum of 48 ounces. Hope this helps!:smile2:

I was given the food I need to eat from the dr paid for by me of course. It is health wise products. It is actually easier for me to know I can only eat out of these boxes. I can have 5-6 packages aday. The food it not horrible I have chicken Soups and pancake mix, egg omelet, bars, shakes, juices, oatmeal, and hot choc. The serving sizes are a lot smaller than I am use to, but unbelievable to me they filled me up. I have not actually felt hungry, but the want to actually but other things in my mouth is hard. I have three young kids so I still have to make their meals.

I have survived 4 days and have only eat 3 baby carrots outside of what I was supposed to. Really proud of myself. 10 more days to go on the pre-op and band day. Did I answer your question or ramble?

I just found out today that I will have my surgery in 4 days, 3-2-10. I have no real pre op diet. Just a light bowel prep the night before and nothing to eat or drink after midnight. Surgery is 8:30, pre-op check in the day before. I have been on a 6 months supervised diet. Oh and I also have a large hiatel hernia that will be repaired at the same time.

Good luck everyone

I have a schedule date of 3/11/10! I am nervous, excited and ready! I started my pre-op diet on Thursday and lemme tell ya, it's been hard! I have one whey protien shake in the morning, then for lunch and Soup for dinner. I can drink V8 splash, Water, coffee and tea.

I started out at 252 and now at 244. My ulimate goal weight after surgery is 135-140.

I wish everyone the best and hope that we can all encourage one another and keep in touch!

Where is the thread, I can't see it ?

I have been given a date of 3/8/10. Going through all my testing now. I hope all goes well.

TO MSDV and SANDI!

My date is March 8 also! I start full liquids tomorrow (the 1st) and am both excited and a little scared. My issues now are

1) everyone in the family wants to be there, and that sounds like a circus to me, not to mention that the hospital is more than 2 hours away.

2) although doc has said I can drink coffee moderately, I'm worried about it.

3) surgery fear, of course.

How are you guys?

Dayna,

I have been on Optifast shakes for 3 weeks now and it's not bad. One week should be a breeze.

If you're drinking coffee, try to stick to Decaf. Between the anesthesia and pain meds you may see a little Constipation and caffeine makes it worse.

I have exactly 48 till surgery and I am still not excited. I've become so skeptical that I won't believe anything until I see it. My fear is gone. I was a little concerned about pain but it sounds like it is more discomfort than pain.

Good luck!

Mine is tomorrow!

Ok, I'm actually strangely calm. I am more excited about the end result.

I should be petrified since I've never been under, although I've had 2 c-sections, so I've been through abdominal surgery before...

The pre-op diet was ok. The only tough part was was today when I was on a clear liquid diet. I was SO hungry and lightheaded ALL DAY! Tomorrow should be easier since I'm guessing I won't have much of an appetite.

I can't wait to start the rest of my life!

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
