Any January Surgery Bandsters?



Recommended Posts

I would like to lose 100lbs

My Nsv would be to walk into any store and just pick an outfit that fits nicely.

Also, to wear my knee high boots. I also want to just be able to play with my two boys comfortably. I have a5 year old and 1 year old

My surgery date is January 14, 2014.

This is a great way to start a new year. I am so excited! Everything is ready to go - I've paid for the procedure, had my physical exam, had 2 dietitian appointments so far, and am starting my pre-op diet on Jan. 1.

I'm in Winnipeg, MB.

I have 90 lbs to lose. I just got my blood work papers, and have the pre-op appt next week on the 27th with my regular physician. It is all coming together nicely.

Got my four sure date today. January 6th 8a.m. Super excited!!! When I have my before surgery appt with my surgeon I am going to make sure he thinks the lap band is best for me & not the sleeve or one of the other WLS. I keep reading so much info on which surgery is the best. So many people have the lapband but then get the sleeve or something else later. Any thoughts on what you all have heard or your physicians opinion?

How much research have you all done? I feel like I still have so many questions but the lapband train is still going full steam ahead.

I know I want this. I know it's the only way to help me get this weight off. I just feel like I need to know more about what to expect afterwards.

From the research reports I have read the rates of slippage and removal can be high after 4/5 years. So clearly complying with the "rules" of the band are essential to success.

I just feel like I don't know enough. Could be time for some more questions to the Doctor...

I think this site is a great one to ask questions on & to get answers to your questions but you have to be in the rt forum

Went and met with the surgeon today. Went and got seven viles of blood work done. Just waiting now until the 16th. Everything is done! Yippee! The best news...Dr. said instead of two weeks if broth fasting that I only have to do one week! Liver is small ;) I am stoked about that!
