Recommended Posts

Hi V8T,

drinking fluids I have to go slower than usual or else I seem to get a bit of heartburn or that sensation. I use a teaspoon for say yougurt mixed with a bit of milk and that seems to go down ok. I don't feel it passing through the band. A couple of times I drank fluids from a bottle too fast ( not gulping it down) just I guess not given it enough time to go down and I got the heartburn sensation. There is no fill in my band.

Not long for you now good luck with your surgery I feel great now everyday after surgery I had a big improvement on the previous day , all good

Daisy, do you feel up to work tomorrow? I've put in for 3 weeks leave as i have it there....Can I ask if you have noticed any weight loss? I haven't told anyone at work and I'm wondering if its going to be really noticeable? Also do you feel dehydrated at all with such little fluid in the early weeks.....sorry I have a million questions!!!!

Haysie and Jenna hope all is well thinking of you both. Yeh I'm banded first day was dreading the 4 hr trip home but they dosed me up on drugs so slept most of it. Pain is unusual it's like tightened feeling around stomach just getting some shoulder pain now. It like really bad indigestion. I thought I was going to throw up this morning but burped and felt much better. Bit gassy out the rear as well:-). Only sipping but feeling full quick. Today I had a v8 breakys fruit box, on the way home a up and go drink and tomato soup for dinner in between, sips of water with benefiber or borroca these are taken flat and seperate dietician orders. Tired going now keep you all posted.

Thankyou everyone for well wishes

Nanny, i lost 10kg on opti and i was telling the surgeon i was worried about the size of my liver because its always been fatty. He said thats the whole reason we put u on opti. He belives that most of the weight loss is from the liver. So thats pretty good.

hi size10deam,

yes I feel fine now I will take it easy in work.Yes there is a definite weight loss a couple of people called in and could notice weight gone . I was 95 when I went to see the surgeon and had about 2 weeks before I started opti and I had more last suppers and went up in weight . The day before the op I was 92 and now in the morning on the scales I am 87 but as the day goes on about 88, I want to get to 65 so for every 3kg lost its another 10% to goal ,I am going by my weight with the surgeon, as my starting weight.

I do need to drink more water along with the liquids. I would think a lot of weight will be lost in 3 weeks if people ask you have you lost weight say your doing weight watchers or the Dukan diet.

have you been banded yet

Thanks for the info Daisy, my numbers are very similar to yours, I'm 91kg but only 5'2" so every kg counts! I'm glad you're feeling good and being under 90 is a great loss in a short time! I'm being banded on 27th with a week on opti from next weekend....ill be right behind you!!!

Size10Dream - Ha ha you sound like me!! Not being banded until the 30th so every meal seems like a last supper!  Like you I am booking in meals with friends so I can lie low for a while afterwards...  I don't have to do the Opti but am thinking of doing it the week before anyway.  I think I'd rather get the sugar headaches out of the way before surgery.

Hi Ashmee, look after yourself don't push to early, rest as much as you can. Congrats daisy and Jenna. It's slow going for me just resting lots, not too much shoulder pain just that bad indigestion pain and discomfort lying down better on my back than my side. How is everyone feeling with that?
