    One week post op

    Thanks Nicola. Your post is a big help! I think my cravings are due to advertisement I see on TV. I just get a bit down when I realize I cannot even have those food anymore at this phase. So you had lap band 8 years ago. How did it work for you?

    One week post op

    HI everyone. I'm one week post-op and my tummy is swollen. Too much gas. Even if I walk everyday, it doesn't go down. How long does it take to get rid of the gas ? Anything I should take besides gas-x? I am also still in pain, and craving a lot of food. Is this normal? I wish I can eat something else besides the shakes. Help!

    Optifast Pre-op (Weight dropping)

    LOL I already had 2 jellos and I dont feel like eating a third. I think I'll feel better once I start sipping a clear broth

    How many lbs have you lost?
  14. MY doctor told me to rest for a week post-op but for anyone who did lap band surgery, is there any way I can work 4 days after surgery? Please give me some input. Thanks!
