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!

      Stalls are the WORST.  I know they happen, but I am still disappointed.  I've been the same weight for over 2 weeks.

        I know the feeling. I did some major online shopping with all the sales around black friday. In tops I wear anywhere between a S-L. In pants from 6-10. But I must own the world's most elastic panties, because -100+ lbs, I still wear the same undies! :lol:

      I went against my weekly weigh in and cheated today the scale says I'm 248 😂How? Maybe it's wrong lol I just purchased the scale and it's my first time using it. I'll weigh my daughter to see if it's accurate. I was 255 this time last week so I guess it's a real possibility. I'll let you know , I have been very picky about sugars and carbs even though I don't have a huge variety of foods to choose from. I'm super excited and hope everyone is doing great! Got to charge my iPad but I just had to share my happiness
