Hi I'm new to the site



Recommended Posts

Hi I had my lap band surgery on the 10th of June and in the process of recovering. I just wanted to say hi and hopefully catch up with others who had the lap band done around the same time.

I live in Australia and my surgeon was Dr Ian Martin. I self funded my surgery and went intermediate to cut down the costs.

Cheers:)

Hi and welcome. I had my lap band surgery on the 10th as well. There is also a whole group of us in the June 2008 forum. Hope you are feeling well. I'm tired and still dealing with the gas pressure from the surgery. Each day is better though! Good luck on your journey and private message me if you would like to keep in touch.

I had mine in Rotorua, NZ on June 11th. My insurer covered half...so happy about that. I lost 8 kilos in the two weeks leading up to surgery and have lost another 2 in the last five days. Sticking to the half cup at a time is hard work but I'm sure it will get better. Good luck!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
