Band Tighter After Workout?



Recommended Posts

Does anyone else find their band is tighter after working out? I am 2 weeks out of surgery and just started back at the gym this afternoon. I did a light treadmill workout to start gearing up again, and I feel as tight as I usually do in the mornings. Just wondering if this is a typical thing?

I didn't have that but my port has moved in deeper. I work with a trainer and he beats the crap out of me (lol) I think that may have caused it. It was harder for my doc to locate for a fill

Interesting! I will have to watch for that when I start working with mine. I don't intend to let him beat me up to start, but as we progress... Thanks!

Definitely - after a hard workout. I can go for a light run and eat immediately after but a tough strength training session or inteval training? No way.

Thanks! I figured it made a certain sense, but wanted to check.

I know usually when I work out I'm less hungry. My trainer/instructer/friend always tells me to go home and eat after my high intensity kickboxing class, but most of the time I'm not hungry.

First of all, 73 lbs and you haven't even been banded yet? How amazing are YOU!!! Wow!

I hear you on not being hungry after a workout; I try to at least get a Protein Drink down afterward, since I am thirsty then. And if I don't, I get ravenous later and have trouble not grazing the rest of the evening.

Are you talking to me?

If you are, yes, I've been banded. Regretfully. I have had no complications, but would never do it again.

Jess, yes. Sorry! I totally misread your surgery date as December of this year!!! Anyway, good on you! I can't wait to being losing in earnest.

Glad I saw this post! I've been working out consistently for the past three weeks, I have noticed my band seems tighter afterwards. Some days I have difficulty drinking my Protein Shake after a workout. I also have days when I can eat my regular dinner afterwards - I just figure this band has a mind of its own:-)

My band is tighter after a workout and I was wondering if anyone else experienced the same thing. I am lucky to get down an entire Protein Shake sometimes. I walk on a underwater treadmill at about 3.2 mph for about 40 minutes. I asked my doctor about it and she said "The band has a mind of it's own sometimes for sure. Mind your band!" LOL LOL So I mind my band, because it's definitely in charge! LOL LOL

My band does not seem any tighter after intense workouts.

I was banded on 12/14 and I feel my band is tight early in the morning right when I wake up! Is that normal or is it gas and swelling?

All of the above. Bands tend to be tighter in the morning, after working out, and around that time of the month. The Dr says to do soft food or liquid in the morning. It gets better.

I take hot herbal tea to the gym instead of Water. I can't drink a lot anyway. Sipping something hot has helped me not feel tight. I have the Realize band. I do TRX classes 3x a week.

      Meal replacement shakes are soooooo good when you have a sore throat and don't feel good enough to cook. Plus, I always have lots of them at home. So I'm not tempted to grab crap from McDonalds (which has the best cold "medication").

      This morning I had an abdominal ultra sound because apparently my cholesterol keeps rising.
      I don’t get it. My cholesterol was always fine & now when I eat less of everything & have lost weight it starts to go up.

      My intake of fats & oils has decreased (not that I was a big fried food person before anyway) & not just because I eat way less. Always cut the fat of meats, still don’t eat bacon, use spray olive oil instead of regular oil. Even the tub of butter in my fridge has been there since before May. Lol.
      I just don’t get it? Is it because I don’t eat anywhere near the amount of vegetables I ate before? It surely can’t be because I eat a piece of cheese every day which I didn’t before? Are all my hormones screwed up? 
      Sigh!

        Cholesterol seems to be odd that way. I've got a suuuuper skinny brother-in-law who has sky high cholesterol. So don't let the whole "overweight" thing fool you. They seem to find it in people who have the genetic predispositions for it nowadays it seems. Our bodies are really still a mystery of how they react to certain changes. Just keep at it and keep talking to your doctor. Who knows, you could be a medical mystery?!? Embrace the challenge.

        Think of it this way, you now have an excuse to try ostrich meat! http://safariostrich.co.za/2016/06/ostrich-meat-benefits/

        PS. Gah hormones!

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY!
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.
