Surgery is tomorrow in the DFW area. I have a lot of emotions, happy, scared, nervous. Just to name a few. Good luck to all and if I don't update in the morning I'll do it when I get home from the surgery.

Good luck!

I wish everyone going into surgery today, and the days to come, a safe and successful day!

I've been home 9 hours and still am exhausted but I'm walking and managing the pain with liquid Tylenol (loritab made me feel wonky!) and the bit of residual nausea with emetrol.

I've had about 4oz of Isopure Protein Shakes and 4oz of Water since I arrived home last night. I'm not hungry yet just slightly thirsty so far.

Happy Banding everyone!

Best of luck to all of you being newly banded. I am 8 days post op and I have made it so you can to! The thing you always hear about walking a lot is no joke. It really does help. If they give you pain meds go ahead ahead and take them. No point in being in pain if you don't have to. I gained a lot of Fluid weight after surgery but it came off in about 3 days. Also my blood sugar went up into the 270's but it also came down in about 2 days. Just some tips from my experience..............

My surgery is tomorrow! I will call this afternoon to get my exact surgery time, but I am way excited. I thought I would be more nervous, but I am just so ready for positive change that, so far, I am more excited than nervous. For the last month, I have really taken a different approach to eating foods and am happy with my emotional progress, as well as physical progress.

I am making a large pot of homeade chicken noodle Soup, so that I can drain the broth and have homeade broth instead of canned for the first little while, as I heard it tastes so much better. Then, the fam can eat the soup!

Countdown! (Pre-op~lost 8 lbs.)

I am going in tomorrow too! Have to be there at 730 am. I was wondering if anyone did before pics and measurements? I wish I had when I started the preop diet as I have lost 20 lbs on it so far, but I did my measurements a little over a week ago and again today and already see inches lost!

I have been keeping my measurements on myfitnesspal.com. I haven't taken any before photos as I feel I have a lifetime of them! LOL biggrin.gif

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
