Any January Surgery Bandsters?



Recommended Posts

I'm now a part of the banded club. I started the day learning my liquid diet paid off. 18 pounds. In one week. Now to heal. I'm not a fan of the gas pains, but these will pass. I'm staying in the nursing home tonight (sleep apnea), but I've walked several laps around the hall. Good times. I'm on my second bottle of Water and had a little broth and Jello.

Congratulations!!! Sounds like you are off to a great start!

Glad surgery went well. Now time to heal :) Rest up and take your pain meds! Doc prescribed them for a reason :)

What??? Ur going to work already as a cna?? That is the same thing i.do, i was banded on the 9th and if i do a lot like go store and walk over 15-20 minutes, i am in sooo much pain! I know everyone is different, but MAKE SURE with our job functions u r ready. My doctor said 4-6 weeks because the job is so physical.

My Dr told me only 1 week. I do have my pre-op appt with him before I am supposed to go back to work though so we will see what he says about it. My job isn't quite as demanding as most CNA jobs... Some nights I just sit for hours on end but then again some nights are so crazy especially when I'm alone

Oh okay I forgot what shift your on makes a big difference. How are you feeling after surgery? My pain is about gone it just feels a little weird to have the lapband in.
