Hey everyone, I am nervous! September 10th is coming up fast! But more nervous about the liquid-5 day diet, the gas after the surgery I’ve heard about and how to eat in the following weeks after. I can’t wait for the tool to be my new life. It I am so scared about all the stuff leading up to that and shortly after.

I am September 10th also. The nerves really are starting to kick in. Its all so overwhelming, but exciting at the same time. Next week and the follow weeks are going to fly! Let stay in contact with each other.

The diet has me tired, craving, and oddly happy to most that know what I’m doing—most of them said they couldn’t do it.

Others that are not in the loop are trying to figure out why I’m doing it. It’s only day four and it’s bizarre to go into any store without picking something up! You really have to focus on stuff that is not food related!

Come on September 10th! I’m excited to start process.

My date is September 6th. I'm on my 2nd week of pre-op diet and lost 12 pounds so far in the first week. Had my scope done on Friday and woke up from the anesthesia laughing. The nurses got a kick out of that. I'm getting nervous... but I'm ready. Having the BPD/DS. 😄

It’s interesting really. I seem to be pushing thinking about the actual surgery to the back of my mind and am only dealing with the day to day things as they come up. My pre-op class was over a week ago and that went smoothly. Last week I got the official call to tell me what time to be there on the 13th- 6:30 AM 😳since I’m apparently the 1st case of the day and I go this week for my pre-op anesthesia appointment. Oh and I started my 1st week of pre-op diet yesterday.
All of that I’ve just assimilated. But it’s weird stuff that I seem to be avoiding doing. Like my surgeon has everyone take B1 in chewable form starting the day you go home. The milligrams he requires isn’t typically sold in stores, but yet I haven’t ordered it online yet. I’ve only purchased enough Protein Drinks to get me through this week. Even though next week I will be on all shakes. If I think about it, I wonder if I’m just being superstitious in a weird way. Like if I buy things I don’t need yet that it’ll jinx it all in some way. What’s nuts is that I’m not a superstitious person. I’m usually very logical. Who knows. I’ll just keep working it all through and getting my head ready for surgery.

Also, are any other lap band people struggling with the pre-op diet. My band even with no Fluid in it is fairly tight, so eating over 30 minutes is easy. What’s killing me though is the lean meal I’m allowed to have. With all the band issues I have trying to get lean 3-4 ounces Protein and 1-2 cups of veg in has been a bear. Especially with no liquids while eating. My band is so screwed up literally every bite I take gets stuck. So last night was my first meal without drinking. It took me 40 minutes to eat, and last night and today so far my GERD is worse than it’s been in months.

I know it will be better after surgery, but in the meantime😩

I was told the strips have been discontinued.

Yep, I read online that they were discontinued. I was very disappointed!

I have seen the Gas-X strips online, however, they were insanely expensive. Also, I’m pretty careful of where I buy anything I’m using in or on my body. I’m not sure either of these places were reputable.

My surgeons office will actually be doing a urine test to make sure I am nicotine free before they perform my surgery. I am due for end of Sept, start of Oct, no solid date set yet

I had the urine test as well on August 19th and I passed, stopped smoking on Father's day of this year.

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!

      I'm not new, I was an active Lapbander from:

      March 4, 2013   LAST VISITED
      February 6, 2017 Here I am on October 4, 2019 thinking back over my Lapband journey and how I thought I would be banded for life. Unfortunately, I have been sick for some time, and am on medications; and well my weight has constantly slowly increased. I was 225 pounds when I had my Lapband surgery on Dec. 17, 2010. At least my weight hasn't reached 210. I have been fluctuating between 202-206. For that, I'm grateful. I'm just excited to be able to have another tool to assist me with my weight loss journey. I'm not looking forward to the liquid stage, however.
