Hello everyone! I just had the Lap-Band Surgery done 8-18-08. So far, so good. I had 6 places where I have had stitches. It is done laproscope (sp.) There is a port which is left in just under the stomach. They use it to put saline solution in or out. I go on Sept. 2, 2008 to see how I am doing. I have been on a liquid protein diet for the first week. Today starts the second week and I can start very soft foods. I get totally full with the 8 ounces of liquid protein and can drink things like Crystal light or water in between meals which is very satisfying. I can see results already of losing weight. My doctor immediately took me off 2 of my diabetic medicines. He kept me on Lantus and Novalog. Will see what happens with that on the second. I stayed in the hospital overnight for 1 night and was released Tuesday. That Friday was when I started only taking pain meds at night. So far it is terrific. I will keep you all posted on the future. Let me know if you hae any questions and support.
