My surgery isn't until next month, but I just wanted to check in and say that I hope your surgery went well. ❤️

Hi! Sorry it has taken me so long to respond but I had a rough go with my surgery! And more complications then expected. But I am getting better every day! I had a lot of scar tissue from previous surgeries and my hemoglobin got very low after surgery and I had to receive several transfusion. Super scary ordeal but I’m seeing the light now and excited I’m down 20 pounds since preop diet. Good luck with you surgery!

Hi, i had my revision surgery lapband to bypass on the 25th. So far so good. Hope you are ok and recovering well.

How soon were you back up on your feet and feeling like yourself again? And what do you notice as far as restriction compared to the band?

What differences do you notice as far as restrictions and things that are easier now with the bypass instead of band?

Hi, glad you’re on the mend. I’m pretty much on my feet now. 2 weeks out now still no hunger sensation so have to get better at getting some food and drink in me. I don’t get any ‘fullness’ either. I just get bored 😐 and manage small amounts of Protein Shake. What i have loved is I have no pain which i had with the band. Even though i had no Fluid in the band, eating always hurt so don’t miss that at all. I will know more about restriction when i introduce ‘normal’ food later in the month I guess.

Have you tried eating mushy foods yet? I’m already able to eat mashed potato consistency food which I didn’t expect so quickly. I just we are traumatized by the lapband hahaha

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.

        I am post op day 2 now , you’re there pretty much the whole day. They send you home with a lot of support. Are you local to Birmingham and driving in for the surgery or staying at a hotel in the area?

      Doing to much protein can make you gain weight? Because I gain 3 pound one day and I’m so frustrated 😭🥺 I did a hard work to be in 220 😭😭
