Hi my name is terra and i just got home from my surgery. My surgery was at UCSF by DR campos. I AM VERY SORE !!!!!Does any one have any suggestions? And can someone give me some ideas of how much weight will be lost and the time frame? I understand everyone is different but I am still curious!! :)

Be sure to take your pain meds and walk like crazy. That's all I know. Walking will help with the gas which can contribute to the pain.

I was banded on Oct. 29th and I feel great now. The only way I know I have the band is when I eat a little to much and I feel extremly full. And by to much I mean l little over a 1/2 a cup. I hope it stays this way, because I don't feel like I need a fill at this point. I am losing at a slow pace which I expected with my age. But that is OK, at least it is going in the right direction. So good luck to you and take each pound you lose and be grateful, at least its not a gain.

I was also banded on 11/20 and my main source of pain is my incision where the port is. Other than that, I am starving. I feel like I am obsessed with food right now and I have not be nauseaed at all, so I am wondering if I can move onto full liquids? Any suggestions or information?

      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😍

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
