    Sooooo Confused and concerned !!!

    Hi SB Don't let those jitters get the best of you. I was banded by Dr Dolan in December last year and as far as I am concered he is My saviour. Everybody Has different opinions off him. But if you want the best and most experienced, he is your man. He could do the surgery in his sleep turned upside down.. If you felt comfortable and confident with him at your appointment, then why Quiery your judgement now. Hope this helped. Best of luck for your surgery Jen

    Hi Tattooedgirl Nope I have never had anything get Stuck (ever). I just eat much smaller portions and chew heaps. The only thing i don't eat is Bread or bread products. Havent tried it, so i don't know wether it gets stuck. I just choose not to have it. Other than that i still eat Steak Pasta Rice anything really. Anything in moderation. Hope this helps Jen

    So I went to the Shop today to get a couple of things that actually fit. Since being Banded a Little of 4 Months ago I have Lost 29kg, So I have been in great need of some better fitting Clothes. I had not got around to it yet, as I figured what was the point in spending money on something that won't fit in a couple of months (Scrooge I Know). Anyways the other day my daughter pulled on my skirt and it near on fell of infront of the mums at school . So with much displeasure I organised to go to the shop for a clothes shopping day with my sister inlaw. Now I Don't know about the rest of the human race, But I hate clothes shopping. I would rather go to the dentist then go and try and squeeze my butt into Clothes that I don't even like, But don't have a choice as thats what fits. Anyhoo,We get to the shops this morning, Sadsack Face on . Somehow my sister inlaw talks me into going into one of the boutques(skinny minny sizing) eeekkkk. No way am I going to fit in those clothes. She shakes her head walks round the shop grabs a few clothes hands them to me and points me in the direction of the change room.. Dragging my feet and calling back over my shoulder.. "They won't fit." I get into the change room and while still telling myself they arn't going to fit, I slip a dress over my head and down my body.. Holy Shit(excuse the french). It Fit and not just a squeezy fit. It fit good. On with the next and the next and the next. They all Fit. So I Have a look at the size.. OMG size 14.. I near on cried, when did I get down to a 14. It has been at least 10yrs since I was even near a 14. So here I am now Chuffed with my acheivement and since getting home all I have wanted to do is come on here and tell you guys. The people that have help me get where I am today, your stories, support, kind words have made this journey so much easier and for that I would like to Say a HUGE THANK YOU You guys are Great Jen

    feeling in port

    Hi Ret I get a stitch around my band port area if i eat or drink and walk at the same time. Not sure why it does it but the surgeon didn't seem to phased by it. Just uncomfortable. Hope this helps Jen
