Hey Lori - cute picture, but the thumbnail was so small I could hardly see you. I could tell you look happy, though. Are you getting past the issues you had after your folks left? I think playing with your daughter makes you happy. Playing with my daughter always give me a lift, too.

Joann, if you click on the picture it should enlarge, at least it does for me. And, yes, I think I am getting past the issues and getting back to normal. I actually think I faced the issues and dealt with them more this time instead of stuffing them down with food, so hopefully next time I will be even stronger. And a little retail therapy never hurts!! ha ha

Woke up today and stepped on the MM (metal monster aka scale) and was down one!! I'm into the 220's and at 76!! YAHOO!!

deedee, I have never had a fill take awhile to kick in. I can tell the next day how it's going to be. If you're not having trouble with bread, but you did with the pork chop, you probably took too big of a bite. We are supposed to cut our meat into eraser sized bites and chew it up until it's liquid in our mouths.

I haven't had a fill in almost a year, so I don't have those problems anymore. I can eat anything I want without any trouble. I could use a fill, but I don't want any acid reflux problems so I just continue to eat

small meals.

Thanks for that feedback. I guess I just absent mindedly took too big of a bite. But when I got the fill I really didn't feel any restriction at all and still don't - other than that episode I have been fine. As for the quantity of food I can eat it's more than I expected to be able to do.

You can be sure I will be much more careful in the future I didn't like that feeling at all.

Thanks again

Sandi

Today I got my 3rd fill. I now have 7 cc's in a 10 cc band. I have been starving all day. Was suppose to stay on liquids but I haven't been able to. I had some yogurt, peanut butter/crackers, Tomato Soup. Should I be feeling this hunger after a fill. Seems to me like 7cc's is a lot. I'm confused :sad_smile:

Janet, it's good to have you back. We have all missed you.

I feel like we are all back together now. I hope you are getting along okay. I lost my big brother to cancer last year, and his daughter to cancer in early August this year. It's a tough time...

janet I am so glad to see you back. You have been in my prayers.

I don't know about the 7 cc's. My band only holds 4 ccs's . I got to my sweet spot at just under 3 cc's. So maybe they have to be almost full?

I bet I have no saline left. My surgeon says it "disapates" after awhile. Whatever that means. I can eat anything I want without any trouble. It's so nice never to get food stuck anymore. I just hope I can maintain without getting a fill. I don't feel like shelling out $160.00

and it's so nice to be able to take my medication without trouble now.

Good luck to all of our new bandsters. nothing better than being on the bandwagon.

      Work is still stressful and I'm on sick leave for this week because of acute laryngitis (corona tested negative twice). 😷
      I'm surprised that I still get reactions for posts sometimes, even though some of them are quite old now.
      Anyway, hoping people are ok!

        Very helpful, I was just wondering about our stomach wounds..September 8 2021 Sleeve

    • Living4cc

      How are you guys how are you all a little bit about me my name is Cici I had my bariatric sleeve on July 27, 2021 and six days postop currently, I have been dealing with a bit of anxiety a little depression and it’s something that no one really talks about.
      I would love followers and to follow more people throughout this journey because I’m pretty much alone I have a freak out at least once every two hours I know I did the right thing but sometimes I feel like I didn’t I also know this too shall pass and by this time next year it won’t be tears of sadness I’ll be having tears of joy so please follow me on my journey and I will do the same😍
      I would love to share some of the things that I have discovered after surgery that no one talks about
