The Lap Band and Dating

Does getting a fill hurt?

I haven't had a fill, and can't get one until my doctor returns from Vacation the end of August. Luckily, I have a fair amount of restriction without it. But if you read the forums, there are many many threads all about fills, and how they feel, and what to expect.

I often take tiny sips of Water when I am eating with someone who does not know I am banded. I think it helps the food slide down and not get stuck. Since I don't eat with meals the rest of the time, I think this is perfectly okay and better than the alternative.

When it became apparant I would be speding lots of time with my bf,I told him all about the band.

Thanks Denise...it's always good to someone who has already succeeded!

I suppose if this turns into more than a couple dinners, I will eventually tell him about it. But, for the moment, I just don't feel the need.

It may be according to what position you are in and where your port is located.

I asked my husband could he feel it when I was (let's say for lack of better words) on top. I could feel it rubbing against him but he could not feel it. Maybe because mine is somewhat in between my ribs so it all felt the same to him.

One thing I forgot to mention....

My big worry about dating with the lap band was the gas! I mean, really....how embarrassing would it be to toot the starspangled banner during a date? Luckily, this did not happen during this date, but it's always a possibility. I have never had so much gas in my life! In fact, my first husband once asked, "How is it that you never fart?" Well...he should see me now! He would be SO proud!

Stuffs hankie in mouth to stifle the giggles...:thumbup:

Good grief. I thought it was just me. I have so much gas since banded it's absurd. It's very embarrassing.
