Hi there, I am booked in to get the band on the 14th of September and I am very nervous about it. I can't get my head around eating so little and so slow. I am worried that I will always be starving and not able to eat. The throwing up part worries me too. However I have bit the bullet and I am going to do it, I realise the benefits outweigh the negatives.
Hi everyone! I joined the site today and wanted to introduce myself. I've been struggling with my weight for about 10 years now. I've tried every diet out there and the only thing that seems to work is when I've been put on Xenical or Reductil. I maintain it for a short while but then the weight just goes back on again when something stressful happens in my life. My husband suggested lap band surgery to me a while ago as although he thinks I'm perfect, he can see how miserable I am and how much I obsess about my weight. On top of this my father has been in hospital for 2 out of the last 4 months with complications arising from mismanaged diabetes. I also just fou d out that 4 out of 7 in my dads immediate family have diabetes. So I took myself off to my gp and got a referral to see Dr Craig Taylor in Crows Nest. Although my BMI is a (relatively) low 31, I also have high blood pressure, depression and higher than normal levels of cholesterol. I'm booked in to meet with Dr Taylor on Friday 6/12 and surgery should be 4-6 weeks post consultation. I am equally excited and terrified about the changes that will come around from the surgery. Mostly I'm worrid about losing my best friend... Food. Anyway, I look forward to getting to know you all and hearing any tips or words of encouragement you have to share Mrs B
