Gastric band buddies



Recommended Posts

I had my band fitted 30th October 2018. Looking for some people round about the same timescale so we can support each other through this. I'm currently 3 week post op and totally ready for food now. 1st fill scheduled for 11th December.

Hi! I had a band put in the week after you, so definitely a buddy. How are you doing?

Doing great tbh. Had no side effect I.e. trapped wind or pain other than discomfort first few days. Back working and driving after 5 days. Feeling so ready to eat it's unreal. Need to find a diet I can follow to stay fuller for longer. How are you feeling?

Pretty good today, it's been two weeks so I am on to puree and soft food and it is so nice to chew again! The bloat is finally coming down too so that's a nice change. For the first time ever, I'm excited about losing weight, weird right?

Not weird at all! I think the excitement is needed for sure. I'm excited for the little things. Bought some shoes and have gone down a size! [emoji3]

In the UK I was under the impression that lapband and gastric band are the same thing? My mistake, apologies!
