I am having surgery on June 15th and would love to hear Lap Band surgery success stories. Also, what made you choose Lap Band over other weight loss surgery?

I’m having my surgery next Thursday, 6/28. How are you doing after surgery? I hope all is well. I’m a little nervous. My surgeon recommended the sleeve but that seemed so permanent and invasive. I know that is the popular surgery now but I couldn’t take that leap.

Hi guys - I’m having a lapband on 24th July! My surgeon wanted me to have the bypass but I felt the same as you - really permanent!!! It scared me a little! Also I can go Home the day after the lapband! How is everyone feeling?

I’m on my second day of the liquid diet. It’s not to bad when I’m working but I’m not sure how I will feel this weekend. I have a home office so I don’t have to worry about smelling other people’s yummy food at work. However, I have 3 boys so that’s hard during dinner time when they are home. They are older and always on the go now. (21, 18 and 15). My husband had been really supportive and tries not to eat in front of me. My surgery will be outpatient so I’m supposed to go home the same day. Nervous but Excited! I look forward to hearing about your journeys😄

It’s been a week since my surgery and really hasn’t been too bad. It was the easiest surgery that I have had. Now, having only liquids is starting to get hard. But, I know we all can do it!!

I had my band fitted on the 22nd of this month (so 3 days out). The surgery was easy. However still quite sore - but not 'needing' to take any analgesia. Going to try going back to work tomorrow (mostly sedentary job), but would still have liked another few days on hindsight.
Btw I had a band fitted over my bypass that I had done in 2013.
I've heard lots of good things about this combination of treatment so quite excited. Good luck
