Stan Posted October 17, 2005 Report Share Posted October 17, 2005 It's been almost 2 weeks since I got my band placed by Dr. Martinez. So far I have recovered well. In fact, I was back to work on Monday from a surgery on the previous Wednesday. My porthole seems to be fine at this time. The only thing I am struggling with is the liquid diet. To be honest, I've put a few really soft vegetables in the broth and blended it like crazy. At least that gives me some satisfaction, and I don't believe it has casued me any problems. It goes down as easy as clear broth and contains no further calories. Honestly, 2 more weeks of this stuff will be tough, but I'm ready to keep it as calm as possible so that the band doesn't move. I guess I'll find out more when I get my first fill. I am interested if anyone has gone outside of the absolute clear broth requirement. I'm not sure if they want you to stay on that to lose weight, or to make sure the band does not move. In my case, I've had no pain or discomfort in blending my soup, or adding some creamed soups to my variety. I am glad to hear from any of you and your experience.
