Hi!

I got my LB in 2007 n just got it removed 3 days ago due to complications arising from a Tummy Tuck in May 2017. The LB is a good weight loss resource tool but it won’t work alone if it doesn’t first click in the mind. I ended up developing GERD n ANEMIA from it but nothing serious. For now I’m going to give my body a break from all these surgeries b4 I consider any more revision to my body.

Good luck to a u new with Bariatric surgery

Well, unfortunately the TT went SUPER BAD cuz the incision opened up on my 2nd day of surgery n left me an opened wound/crater that took about 4/5 months to heal from the inside out. I had the surgery 5/17 n to this day I’m still dealing with it but almost over. Going into it my health wasn’t good cuz I was anemic n little did I know how important red blood cells r for tissue to connect after any surgery. I hope to finally by the start of summer I’ll b over with this darkest moment of my life n if I would have know this was going to happen b4 hand; I would’ve NEVER had the surgery.

I thank my Lord for getting me through it n thank u too for inquiring cuz my case was very unique.

I was wondering how you’re feeling after having your band removed? Has your gerd and anemia gone away? I’m working on getting mine removed for similar reasons. Thanks.

        Welcome! This is a very friendly and supportive site.

        FYI, status updates get a lot fewer responses than threads. So don't feel shunned if you don't get many responses here.

        I live in Kennedale. Where are you having your surgery and which doctor? I'm being unbearably nosy here :P

        I had mine at USMD, Dr. Dyslin.

      2. Zipps

        Haha, you are fine. Thank you for the welcome! I am having my surgery with Dr Matin at Baylor Grapevine. Day is approaching fast, little nervous of course but can't wait.

      3. Orchids&Dragons

        You're not going to believe the difference. It's just so amazing to not be hungry all freakin' day long!

        Best of luck!

      So I'm having a really really really crappy day. Crappy month really.  My husbands been off work for 2 months with an injury and I've been picking up all the slack with everything. And while, I'm happy to step up to the plate and do these things, I'm getting worn out, physically and mentally. And we went to the doctor today that just pushed his recovery time out for another 2 months.
      The reason I tell you all this......
      I bought twizzlers from the vending machine... and I've been nibbling on them.....
      So much for a lifestyle change *cry face*
      Its crazy because I haven't thought about food as comfort in a very long time. But today, I broke.

        @GreenTealael

        There are still 2 Twizzlers left sitting in the wrapper... they aren't gone yet. But today the cleaning people come at work, so they will be soon! I think I'll get some satisfaction to have something left to throw away.

      5. Matt Z

        I was just messing around. I don't mind being "one of the girls" LOL
