Anyone ever post on the lapband talk forum in the lapband complications section? Is it just me or do you get rudeness from people when you post about complications? Almost like whatever reason you are having problems it's your own fault? I have kept my mouth shut and not responded to the rude ones but its getting old and I'm finding that each time it happens I want to get downright nasty back!

Omg yes! I hated posting there, I had so many complications and was so sick. And when I would post to vent or for support they treated me like I was a freaking moron who couldn't figure out how to utilize the band and all my complications were no big deal. I haven't been on there in a year now because of it. I joined this one when I started my journey to revision. 2months post op and feel 100x's better!

It is because as long as people can imagine it was YOUR fault they feel safe - couldn't possibly happen to THEM...lol

I don't post over there but I do notice something similar on the sleeve side. If people here post complications the immediate reaction is that they too must have done something wrong.

I was lucky that I didn't have complications from my band - other than it just didn't provide restriction! I just wish I could go back and regain those wasted five years.

But, I'm still surprised that so many people are choosing the band after the increased rates of complications and low weight loss in comparison to other surgeries.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
