Crash50t Posted April 24, 2006 Report Share Posted April 24, 2006 I was banded last week in Tijuana by Dr. Ortiz. More or less I feel okay... however I feel very hungry and some pain (I guess from the gas). I immediately assumed that my "hunger" was mental, but I can hear my stomach growling and feeling hunger pangs, plus I have been on plenty of crash diets where I fasted from 3-5 days, or took some version of Phen and didn't eat ANYTHING all day and didn't feel as hungry as I have since the surgery. I am hoping that it will start to subside when I transition to full liquids later this week. We'll see. I am optimistic. The worst part so far though is that I have managed (somehow) to catch a cold and can't stop sneezing OOOUUCCHHH!!!!! I'll keep checking in and posting my progress, but like I said I am an optimistic person, and I believe that this LAP-BAND must work, or else people wouldn't be having the type of success, and others wouldn't be traveling in droves and paying such costs to follow in their foot steps if it didn't work. So to everyone out there - keep your chins up! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
