Was in the Pocono mountains with my kids and the grandbaby. We saw the moon also and it was spectacular...it was red like the sun.

Digital Detox? Yeah, me too. Started about 10 months ago.

So, what is this Bandsters #6 thread all about? I see a lot of old friends. I went in to have my left knee replaced on October 20th and then had acute appendicitis on December 4th and then my right knee was replaced on December 22nd. My strength is pretty much back to normal now but the knees are still healing, very slowly.

Took me about 3 months to kick the percocets/oxycodone but that's behind me now. Good to see you all again.

@@2muchfun missed you! Appendicitis, yikes, that must have been pretty scary with the band. And bracketed by two knee surgeries. Not fun. Glad you're off the meds; that's no way to live. You are one of the people who really inspired me, especially in the exercise realm. Can you bike yet? Hope you have a wonderful autumn and a much better December than last year.

Here's an interesting article I just put up on the general weight loss forum -- sure am glad for the dimmed appetite: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/08/30/opinion/diet-advice-that-ignores-hunger.html?smid=fb-share&_r=0

So glad to hear from you Dan. I knew you were having the knee replacements obviously as we've talked about it with my hips being replaced but I was hoping all was well as I didn't see you on the boards. It takes time as you now know to get those new joints up and running. Especially as we often wait till things are really bad before replacing them. Here's my big news in case you missed it. I made it to London and had a wonderful time. I walked for miles and miles...I even biked through the city on a tour. This was a trip I never thought I'd make and wanted to do for the longest time.

If not for the lapband and the hip surgery, I would have stayed on the sidelines of life instead of being an active member again. I am grateful beyond words.

Welcome back!!

Liz

We probably should start a Bandsters #7 Debbie. This one has been going for more than a year. I'm not sure where the prior threads are...I started when we were on Bandsters #3 or 4 I think. I doubt if CG will start the new thread, but I'm good with you starting the new one and letting the folks who follow this one know that we've moved over. Or if you want me to start it, I'm fine with that.

Turns out that many of our old friends, while maybe not posting, are still on the boards. I reached out to CG to find out how to shut this thread down and once I know how that is done, I'll start Banders #7

Good to see familiar faces again. And good to see so many are still trucking along successfully. Gowalking, you're an inspiration to all.

As for me, I'm back to biking. Strength level is close to 100% again. I struggle with long walks and going downhill. I lost another 15 lbs during the surgery/recovery but gained it back + 5 lbs. Need to get back to eating healthier but not worried about it. The band is still there doing it's job.

Hi Friends. Never heard back from CG so I'm sending an IM to Alex asking him to shut down this thread. I'm starting the Banders #7 now so please head over there to continue the journey we are on.

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

      2. SleeverSk

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
