Thinking About Getting The Lapland But Super Scared



Recommended Posts

I been thinking about getting the Lap band for a while now but Iam super scared that something might go wrong .. I am to young to be overweight and I tried working out but after a while and I see no results I stop so I think this will be my better option but still I am scared... What do y'all think I should do any advice .. Like people who had this done was it painful.. From a scale 1 to 10

On a scale from 1 to 10, I'd put it at maybe a 4 or 5. I've had numerous hernia surgeries, my appendix removed, and a c-section. The Lap Band surgery was by the far the easiest of all of them. I had my surgery on Friday and was back to my normal routine by Wednesday.

I don't know. I never had any surgeries so I am pretty scare. But It's something I need to do because I want to be healthy and feel beautiful on the outside like in the inside.

The lap band surgery is simple on the scale of surgeries... I am having a Tummy Tuck in a few weeks and my surgeon said that was way more complicated...

On a scale of 1-10 the pain was a 2 and the discomfort was about a 5 in my case.

I thought it was a 2 as well. I can't believe how smoothly it has gone. I thought about the surgery for two years. Now I wish I would have done it too years ago!!!!

Hi. I was only banded Nov. 8 - was worried too because it is surgery, but easy in and out, and I agree with others - only minor discomfort afterwards. Though I've only lost 12 pounds (20 days), I do feel like a new person. I feel hopeful, in control, and so excited. If you decide to do it, commit to changing your life, eating the right foods et cetera.

good luck!!

I had the iBand surgery on March 16th of this year. It was an easy surgery and I consider it the best thing that I have ever done for myself. Went in had my surgery and went home that day. Pain was tolerable and didn't even have to take the medication they gave me for nausea. I am now down 75 lbs and couldn't be happier. I have given away a lot of my "fat" clothes and have even started buying a few new things to get me through this weight size. I have a trainer who I work out with 5 days a week and she never lets me quit. (She always tells me that she knows where I live and will come find me. lol) I am in love with life now and happier than I have been in a long time. I am enjoying things that I never would try before. I am in control of my life now and I love it.

      I have no clue where to upload this, so I'll put it here. This is pre-op vs the morning of my 6 month appointment! In office I weight 232, that's 88 lbs down since my highest weight, 75 lbs since my surgery weight! I can't believe this jacket fit... I am smaller now than the last time I was this size which the surgeon found really amusing. He's happy with where I am in my weight loss and estimates I'll be around 200 lbs by my 1 year anniversary! My lowest weight as an adult is 195, so that's pretty damn exciting to think I'll be near that at a year. Everything from there will be unknown territory!!

      I changed my profile image to a molecule of protein. Why? Because I am certain that it saved my life.

        That's brilliant! You've done amazing!! I should probably think about changing my profile picture at some point. Mine is the doll from Squid Games. Ironically the whole premise of the show is about dodging death. We've both done that...

      Two years out. Lost 120 , regained 5 lbs. Recently has a bout of Norovirus, lost 7 pounds in two days. Now my stomach feels like it did right after my surgery. Sore, sensitive to even water.  Anyone out there have a similar experience?
