Donyeil thanks for sharing. I am getting banded on the 25th and any positive stories are helping me stay calm pre-op. I've never had any kind of surgery before and I'm ready to get that part over with soon.

Best wishes on your journey. I can't wait to meet milestones together! :-)

Hi Donyeil,

My experience has been a lot like yours. I was banded on the same day, Jan. 2nd. I've had a pretty good recovery and no hunger . . . until this morning. I felt hunger for the 1st time since getting the band this morning. I'm guessing it's a sign that the swelling is going down? How are you doing . . . any hunger yet??

Hey Congrats yes today was my real first hunger day! hearing my stomach rumble was so strange to hear I did not even eat for hours just listening telling myself I could wait just a while longer. If feels like I can eat anything I have been eating applesauce and yogurt all week but I really want to eat so scrambled eggs just waiting until the 18th dr. visit to see if its ok ! What kind of things are you eating???

Pretty much the same - applesauce and yogurt, but also some oatmeal along with the Protein Drinks. My Dr. said as long as everything was going along well between days 7-10 after surgery I could go ahead and start integrating the mushy foods into my diet (hurray!!). So, I'm planning on trying something tomorrow (day 7) -not sure what yet. We have 6 hens that we raised from chicks. During the warmer weather they free range in our back yard and they give us the world's best fresh eggs every day - so I'm thinking eggs! I've been missing those fresh eggs!

      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.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
