Did you go home the day of the surgery?

What kind of pre-surgery prep did you have to do?

I agree with the others. I'd really appreciate being kept posted on how you do.

Newtim,
Looks like you are doing great! I wish that I was getting banded instead of GB, which is scheduled for March 2nd.... As a last resort, I know that I need to do this. I LOVE to exercise but it is sooo incredibly painful these days, as I have gained a lot of weight. But your positive posts, even if I am not having the same weight loss surgery, is so uplifting and inspirational!

Jen

Re: I was Lap-banded on Jan/06/2006

hello jen,
over time there is no differance between the band and gastric by-pass in the amount of extra skin you have w/ weight loss .I am down 51 lbs,and where before was almost impossible due to back pain,no w/ the weightloss..zero back pain,no more pain meds,no more chronic back pain due to the extra weight,no more diabetic meds,none zippo !!!My old trousers were a hugh 48"now I fit into 42"and just the other day I walk 2 miles w/ a back pack ...pain free...best thing I ever did for myself...good luck

Re: I was Lap-banded on Jan/06/2006

That is WONDERFUL!!!! Congrats on that !!!!!
I am really looking forward to it but am now beginning to struggle with saying goodbye to the foods that I love. But then again, I think it would be better to say goodbye to the foods and get healthy than to run the risk of more health issues......
