Good Luck Letty. I have my pre-admissions physical tommorow, meeting with surgeon & they give me cleanser to scrub up for 3 days prior to surgery. It's getting closer and I'm definitely more nervous! I'm excited but can feel the anxious feeling - almost like one gets if you have to talk in front of a whole group of people...anticipating the unkown.

Hi, I know your nervous but you're going to be fine. I was banded last Tuesday 6/19. I was sore for the 1st couple of days and each day I felt better. The key is to keep moving, walk and move your body. Drink little sip of fluids but frequently and you will be fine in no time. I have no pain and am able to drink easily and have Jello and popsicles and a Protein Drink and I feel fine. I went shopping at Walmart yesterday, went out over the weekend and thus far I have lost since surgery 6/19 12lbs. All together with the 12 lbs I lost during the 2 weeks of Optifast and liquid diet before surgery I have lost 24 lbs. I am anxious to hear how you do after surgery. Be brave and strong this is the best thing you can do for yourself in your lifetime to keep healthy. You're in my prayers!! Good Luck! :P

Thanks everyone :) ill keep you guys updated

Hi Letty,

I'm getting banded tomorrow too! I'm not worried about the surgery or the pain. I am worried about the hunger I will experience until I'm in the green zone tho. Maybe we can cheer each other on?

      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.
