Ok I am 1 month short of the two years out. I have had a barium check but not the camera scope. I have an appointment on the 9th and am going to talk to my doc about all this. I hate to say I have felt weird lately myself, lots of rumbly sounds and movement from my stomach area? I think you guys have a larger lurker audience than you know.

After all this is a relativly new procedure...no one really knows 5 or 10 years down the line, they can only guess.

I am not letting any of this deter me from loosing more weight or being happy about my decision to get banded in the first place, it saved my life. Best to all, Trish

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
