    How long does it take to feel 100% post lap band?

    I was a lucky one, i felt normal after 7 days, but i couldnt do things like lift heavy things, and run, but now i don't feel the band, the 1st week i remember feeling to port moving around, and it was so painful... but now i am ok, but i do forget the band when i am not eating, but once i start eating it comes to mind that i have a band!

    Alcohol and the band

    On the weekend i had a cc dry, well 3 of them, that took me like 6 hours to drink them, the only thing is would get warm so i couldnt stomach it, so i think next time, something with a lot of ice, and juice(light one) ... but i love to have my drinks with everyone as well, i am going to a bar tomorrow since having the band, scared but ill be as slow and it doesnt feel right, i wont go on..

    Do you tell people about the band?

    yes i fee you there! i have told nearly everyone that is in my circle, and its on repeat of how my eating is going, that i am fine... and then one of my aunty's that is a big lady as well reacts dramatically everytime i see her, and its a lil embarrassing as i haven't lost tones yet... you know what i mean? and then comes the advice of what to eat, even though the have no idea whats it like to have a band! lol

    Good intake

    Hi everyone !! I have kinda slowed myself in. To munchies as I am getting hungry... I did a silly thing yesturday and ate KFC pot and gravy. ! It was at my mums house ! But I thought to myself there is no point in getting upset about it ! So I let it go and continued to eat the way I have been... Anyways I can't understand I can't stomach pears purée, any fruit one, a s also with thicken juice I get bad gas shoulder tip! Think I am slowly finding what I won't be able to eat! Anyways as I am healed pretty much, does anyone feel weird in terms with getting use to the band and what you can take .. I am not sure if he filled my band as now feeling hungry all the time .. Is this normal after 1wk and 3 days ??

    Help :)

    Hey love, I know someone with band a d also with sleeve, a d it is all about the person, some can't tolerate bread, and the other doesn't.. It has pretty much the same effect as a sleeve (the band). But the lady that had the sleeve got it as she has no desire to have children, where as the other friend wants children that's why she went with tr band it's up to you both work great!!! :)

  19. Hey everyone! its been a while since being on here, I am getting banded on 28th march with BMI surgeon Dr Yong. I had to wait because i took out private health last year in march.. so I have waited the year, and due to certain money downfalls I haven't been able to save for it... and now it's fast approaching i need to get it sorted. So I was wondering if anyone knew what you have to do to be able to access your super? and what chanels you have to go through?? Cheers bekah
  20. Banded by dr yong! He is awesome wouldn't say anything bad about him, can't wait to see him for 1st full at the end of the month;)
