5 months out and 40 pounds down!

I am now 5 1/2 months post op and feeling great. I have had 3 fills and now have 7cc in my 11cc band. Food gets stuck frequesntly and it is uncomfortable but I am learning to deal with it. I will be going back to the OCC next week for my fourth and hopefully final fill. I want to lose another 35 pounds and then I will finally be happy!

I'm going to GO FOR IT!

I have done the research and have decided to GO FOR the band! I am so excited. I wish I could do it now but I need to get a passport. I figure I will be ready in January My husband wants me to take another nurse with me in case I need a "PATIENT ADVOCATE". Is anyone else going to do it in January?

I hope someone can tell m

Surgery DONE!!

I'm safely back home and I feel great! My experience at OCC was nothing short of wonderful. No pain. just gas. I'm starting to get hungry now but I am committed to following the rules. I met 4 great women and I hope we can keep in touch. If anyone wants to learn more about my experience just ask me. It was GREAT!!!
