Newbie - Banded 4th April



Recommended Posts

Hi

I just wanted to introduce myself. I was banded 4th April in NSW Australia. I stayed in hospital overnight and went home the next day. I went through some depression the next few days wondering what I had done to myself but soon got over that. I also gave up smoking the day I went in for surgery, so that has been hard also.

After about a week I woke one morning and felt really hungry, from then I have had no restriction. I have really had to control myself to not totally binge. I am going to see my DR on Thursday for a fill, i really hope it helps me a bit in keeping the food demons at bay.

Anyway I hope to see you all around more, I love this forum and wish I had discovered when I was first researching.

Hi Kellie,

I was banded on April 8. I don't get a fill for another couple of weeks. My sister lives in Eaton, Western Australia.

Welcome, soon you'll be changing that name to Little Belly Kellie! My mom was banded on the 7th of April. She's gets her fill some time in May.

Hey Kellie-Bellie! I like your screen name! Little Belly Kellie will be nice though, eh? Good one HarleyNana! We have a few Aussie's on the April Bandsters list, so you are in good company! I was banded April 8th and I'm still very restricted. I can't imagine being able to eat just about anything with no restriction! I may never get a fill! And you gave up ciggies? wow. Good for you!

Anyway, welcome to LBT, glad you made it!

      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.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
