Great to have it all over and done with isn't it Megz? Its day 11 for me and each day just gets better. I slept on my left side for about 2 hours last night.... it was great!
Hope you have a great recovery and welcome to your new life. Rae

Congratulations and welcome home Megz.
Be kind to yourself - mind, body and soul in these next couple of weeks and keep us posted.

Hi guys!
Hope everyone's going well...
I got banded Thursday morning, and got home yesterday afternoon....still trying to get used to sleeping on my right side, but have been having lots of practise, lol!
But it went surprisingly well, I expected to be far less mobile than I am.
Haven't had any shoulder tip pain, or pain in the wounds - just really stiff and a bit sore.
Been living mostly on water and juice so far, tried a Sustagen, but it made me feel really bloated and icky, and gave me wicked gas, so leaving that well alone now.
Can't say that I've been hungry, but had a bit of soup earlier which seems to be sitting well.
And I lost a kilo in hospital, yay! :)

Would love to hear how Megz is doing. She should have been banded by now.
Hope all is well.

Rae, the first week or so was a bit surreal for me - the best I can describe it was like the post travel blues. Not bad, but a sort of limbo after all the hype. After two weeks of burps and bruises I finally realised that the weird bump near my stomach, was my stomach, and I am continuing to clue on to stuff daily. The difference in attitude / headspace that develops from this procedure is exciting in itself. I guess once all the discomfort settles we start to realise that we are not the same, we are better. It's really very cool :)

For the first time, possibly ever, I see that loosing weight is not only possible, it's probable - words can't describe how that feels. It's like you have a big kid on your side to help you confront and beat the bully who has always brought you down.

But the gas, I agree, is freaky deaky.

Thanks for the idea, I like it. I am down to 113.5Kilo's so thats good. I still feel beaten or bashed, but I guess it will get better! Can't drink as much as I have been told too. When I do I feel like my stomach is squashed between balloons or something, then the gas rises inside me..... most unsettling! Hope it goes away soonish.
One of my 4 incisions is still weeping a litle, so will ring the surgeon tomorrow I guess.
Its all exciting and i am glad to join the Bandits! Cheers,Rae

Just a quick note to say hi. I am home again and happy to be here. Not nearly as bad as I expected! I am looking for a name for my nice new shiny band.... any suggestions? Feel like I have been in a soccer match, but otherwise ok!
Thanks heaps for all your best wishes.

Thanks Tanya, Won't fib... I'm apprehensive but have kept enough chores to keep me amused for a few hours lol. My husband has just left for a 12 hour shift so home alone. I will be at the hospital before he gets home tomorrow, so just me and my thoughts....
But on another note, you are sounding positive and thats great! Can't wait to join you on the other side of banding tomorrow...... although it may take a couple of days to collect myself.
Thanks for the encouragement!

Thanks for asking Delia, you are so thoughtful, I am ok :)

Steiny, like Ange says is it makes really good sense to go in when you have all your ducks lined up!

Rae, lol, I haven't bought smaller pj's yet but I have old clothes in smaller sizes stored away...touch wood, I will get to open them soonish.

Rosebud, with a 3 y.o in the house it's never tidy for a complete day but at least it gets messy in the nicest of ways :)

Trace, I can't say I have smiled the whole way there or back but I look forward to the positives that will come from this rather momentous decision.

I hope EVERYONE is well and happy here and plodding along, I haven't caught up on posts yet but am looking forward to seeing how you all are...

l decided to postpone my banding 5 weeks until April, so l won't be a March bandit. A few things going on meant it was a bad time for me to get it done. lt's disappointing, but l think it was right for me...

Good luck for tomorrow, Tanya!
It's a little weird to be counting days now - it seemed like forever when I got my date back in November!
Now it's only 24 days away....

And good luck for next week, Steiny - are you excited yet?
