4 days post lap band surgery



Well I had my surgery last Thursday. Met 3 others that had the lap band and one who had the sleeve after a lap band removal. It went great. I cannot believe I was so nervous. Everyone at OCC was awesome. The facility was great. Post op I went back and stayed at the hotel and glad I did, the ones that stayed overnight wished they wouldn't have. I feel GREAT. There is pain and gas but WALKING is key. Day after surgery walked from Marriott to Walmart and then after a nap, took a cab to the Revolution Ave for 2 hours of shoppping with my new banders. Pre op diet I was 245, at OCC weighed in at 235 and am now at 233. I think I am still full of fluids and gas. The post op diet is tough and I am only on day 4 but I can do this. I would love to me 25lbs down by end of 21 day post op liquid diet. Down 12lbs now.

I'm proud of you. It is exciting that you got to go back to the hotel the first night. I know that I would prefer that if it is possible for me. keep up the great work.

Thanks. Day 5 on the liquid diet. Wow 25% of the way done and it is going to be the hardest thing to do. Walking post op is the best medicine. Went back to work today. Perfect. Had I gone back on Day 4, I think I would have struggled with discomfort etc.
