  1. Questions on the Lap Band

    Thank you so much Jennifer. It really helps the jitters when people reach out and tell you how they made out. I am really looking forward to the surgery. My original date was 4/28 but they changed it to 6/2 GRR but whatever I can wait... lol Right now I am in the "trying to lose weight before surgery day" lol that is fun. thanks again Eileen

  9. Anyone Out There From Long Island?

    Thank you for replying .... Buffalo is cool..... I am trying to get someone who can let me know the ins and out of the lap band.. most people on here seem to have gotten the RNY. I didn't get my lap band yet I am in the process of it now. You know all the ladeedah before hand. You did soooo good with your surgery. Keep up the good work!! This is a good thread, Thanks again from Long Island.
  10. Hi, Just wondering if there are any Lap Band people out there from Long Island NY.
  11. Hi everyone, I am just starting my journey with the Lap Band. I am interested in how people feel right after the surgery. Do you have to stay on liquids for a while, when do you get to start eating? Right now my nutritionist is having me eat real slow and chewing the food real well. (I always eat too fast) It's a hard habit to break. Thanks everyone.
  12. Hi everyone, I just came upon this thread by accident. I am very pleased to see there is a lot of helpful info for me to read through. Am am interested in talking to people who have had the Lap Band. I see mostly the RNY. So if anyone wants to share I am willing to read.. The technology out there for over weight people is amazing. Thanks everyone.
