1st Fill... if you've had yours...


Recommended Posts

Okay.. I need your advise, I'll keep it short and sweet. Big party at the Tulalip Casino on Thursday evening, July 3rd. Am thinking about scheduling my first fill for that afternoon. Don't care if I can't eat, but definitely care about being able to drink. 2nd option... stay until Monday, July 7th and get my fill in the morning, and then drive home and go straight to work. My preference is my 1st option, but what would you do???

OK, this is just my take - I'd stay until the 7th and go shopping in Marysville. (If you go there let me know and I’ll join you)

The reason, yes you can drink, but as you know from all of the conversations about alcohol - we become light weights after this surgery. And you're going to want a little bit of food in you so you can drink enough to have fun, without getting sloshed! (Plus when everyone is eating and having fun, you want to join them even if we can only eat a little bit)

You get to decide, that’s just my take!

Either way, have fun!

Not to sound like a Debbie Downer, but are you really supposed to be drinking this soon after surgery? If we aren't supposed to have anything carbonated for 6 months, why is alcohol ok? I know the effects aren't the same as carbonated drinks, but I can't imagine that they're any less serious.

I guess my point is that we've all made this major life change and it doesn't seem like alcohol is going to help us in any way. (except for some of the good effects an occasional glass of red wine can have)

cedartown, you made a big point in a topic you wrote about another bander eating too much and that you couldn't support someone who does stuff like that. Isn't saying "DR O said i could drink all the liquor i wanted after day 21." just as bad? I don't feel like alcohol should be the exception just because it can't make your band slip. That doesn't mean it's good for you.

I don't know, I'm not a drinker and never have been, so maybe I don't quite understand since I don't get any enjoyment from drinking. I'm not trying to pick on anyone, I just want us to be as healthy as we can since we've invested so much time, enery, heart, and MONEY into this.

I understand where you're coming from Alana. Don't get me wrong, I don't drink alot. I never drink at home, only socially. But when I'm out with friends, I'm not going to deny myself. From what I understand I won't be able to drink much anyways, and like Lisa said, you just have to plan to incorporate those extra calories that you're taking in, into your daily count. Right now I'm struggling to get 1200 calories in, so a few drinks would still keep me within the 1200. What Cedartown was trying to say basically was that he was told it would not be harmful to drink.
