good afternoon lbters! so i was lying in bed last night thinking about all the information and support i've gotten on this site...and i started to wonder how many people have found this site before surgery, and how many people found it after being banded. needless to say, i had an ice cold diet coke before retiring, so my mind was quite alert! i thought i'd start a poll-how exciting!

I found it before. This site prepared me very well for all that would happen. I can't imagine having the surgery without having had all this knowledge before hand.

This board has been very informative. It's nice to hear of everyone's success stories, along with those that are struggling.

No one has the same circumstances and this board reminds me of that fact. (does that mean I'm not abnormal?!)

Hope to be banded the end of February.

I will be 60 days smoke free by then.

21 days no cigarette!

If I hadn't had friends on LBT to talk me down from the ceiling while I fought the insurance company - I might not have survived!

Plus - I knew all the stuff that would happen to me before surgery - so there were no surprises...

It's all good. Love LBT.

I never would be going through with this if it weren't for all of the 'real life' information that I've learned here.

Thank you all!

Before banding. And I'm so glad. I got such good info here, to go along with what my surgeon's information.

And the support is great.

I lurked here for almost a year before joining. All the information here definitely helped me make my decision.

I love LBT.

Before banding, I was looking for info from real experience, the good, the bad, and the ugly. Thanks to all of you for providing that

I was here before banding and as soon as I found it I informed my surgeons office so they can tell other band-wannabe's. I was totally prepared for anything my band could throw at me - thanks to this site.

Several months before being banded. I wanted to hear what it was like from people who had it, outside of the two people I knew personally.

      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.
