  1. Hang in their, it will take some time. I just had a 3.5 cc fill today and two and a half months ago I had 2.5cc's. So it's a total of 6 cc. I will start to loose again and am looking forward to it. I also make a lot of wrong food choices and know I need to work with my band and not expect it to do all the work. I have restriction and notice I can not eat a lot of food like I use to. I can go out and eat, I end up bringing half of my food home. I am actually going to start to order off the kids menu after asking management if they will honor my request. If they ask or say I cant I will let them know I had the lap band surg. There is nothing wrong with enjoying the food I use to, I just eat less.And I am also eating healthier and making better food choices, and when I eat the foods I loved so much, I get over it and get back on track. I am a work in progress and will learn how my body and my band are going to work together to help me be a healther person. So far my blood pressure has improved, I was told to stop taking my blood pressure medication by my surgeons assistant. I have droped down from a 18-20 size in clothing,and not wear XL in regular clothes (tees, sweaters, ect..) I am in my size 16 pants from a 18-20 and those where tight ! I am happy with the results, if I wanted to drop a lot of weight in a short time I should of had the gastric bypass, but the lap bad is right for me. Excersise is a great way to loose as well. Like I said, hang in their, and eat foods that keep you full longer. Take care
  2. Hello Dr.Gupta I did everything a little backwards, I already had a tummy tuck, back lift with breast aug and implants.All within the last 7 ys. I have now had the lab band, November 2010. Do you think I will need to redo the tummy tuck and breast augmentation with implants again after I loose all my weight?
  3. Well, finally doing my workouts! I have been on my new treadmill almost everday. Im sooo sore. I do 30 to 45 min a day, have only missed 4 days in the last two weeks. I finally ran Im so happy. I also do free weights. getting on track after three and a half months post op! Till next time. Thirty min treadmill 30 min free weights
  4. First day of workouts: 45 min foudation Tae Bo Billy Blanks dvd, 50 sit ups with 8 lb weight ball 25 squats using exercise ball, 2 sets 20 x back arms,front crunches,side lifts. I'm 6 weeks post op on monday. See what tomorrow brings..
  5. This does not sound right to me, I would call your ins and see what they say and go from their, dont give up. I am blessed, my ins covered at 100% I only pay a $15.00 co-pay for office visits and all pre-op and post op classes are free. I had no hospital co-pay either. Looks like you have a lot of good advice and I would persue the advice. I went to this md's web site and read patients pay extra fees as well. Pleae seek elsware or change ins as suggested before.You deserve it
  6. Well I'm post op 6 weeks and ready for my first fill. I have lost inches and havent been on a scale since my last post op appt. five weeks ago. And I'm ready to go back to work on Monday, I took the whole six weeks for myself and feeling good about that. I havent had any complications or problems with food so I'm a lil nervous about whats ahead but looking forward to it.
  7. I have had to re shop for myself, buying new sesonings and so on. So it was a little more the first 6 weeks but I do see it being a whole lot less my next visit to the store. I had the lap band Nov 29 my friends and family say Im a cheap date for dinner now! Lovin it!
  8. I used a recliner when I had my tummy tuck in 04 and again for my lap band surgery. It was wonderful.! Im now in my bed and still use two pillows for a little elivation. Scared I may loosen my band or port. lol
