Hi everyone, I’m new to this forum and planning to have revision from lap band to sleeve.

Lap band experience was not good a waist of insurance money.

Is a month wait for approval the usual weight time?

I had a lap band in 2007 and had it removed within 2 years because I couldn’t keep any food down (the hole closed off) and I had pre-Barrett’s esophagitis. I’m getting sleeve on the 7th! Best wishes on your surgery.

Hey! How did it go? Girl, I am sooo excited, starting the pre op diet tomorrow (not looking forward it but definitely worth the sacrifice)

How is everyone doing, I am 12 days post op, feeling good, getting the hang of not drinking immediately after eating, and down 37 lbs from highest weight. If I hadn’t worn jean shorts and left two middle incisions uncovered things would be even better. I irritated those two incisions and have to use triple antibiotic and keep them covered for a week. I will Definately cover them from now on!! 🤷🏼‍♀️

      I just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
