Recommended Posts

Ive struggled with my weight all my life, it judt seems like a never ending battle. I had a failed lap band and I've now been approved for the DS on July 23rd 2019.. I'm so excited about also extremely nervous!

I don't want to fail! I'm having anxiety dreams about being the only person to gain 25lbs a month after the surgery lol.

Any and all encouragement and advice is welcome!

Thank you!!

Lapband surgery has the lowest success of all the WLS so dont beat yourself up too much. In fact many have to have revision surgery because of it. In Sweden, they are doing revisions all the time due to the complications from lapband. (Sweden has tons of research on WLS surgery which is used around the wolrd. Since it's covered by universal healthcare the (anonymous) information is used for studies all the time. Patients also have the chance to participate in studies.)

So, I think DS will help you greatly. So chip up and go for it!

I also failed with the lap band, but have found great success with the DS. You'll find a whole new you staring back at you in the mirror a year after your surgery.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
