    Best of luck to you. make sure you ask your doctor or nutritionist any of the questions you have, they will be best equipped to help. What about what you are doing do you think isn't right, are you thinking the weight isn't dropping the way it should?? is your restriction not where you think it should be?? are you hungry??? What are you eating if you don't mind my asking??

    Hi Sandy, I am happy for you and your decision to have the surgery. It is so hard to focus on ourselves, but it is never to late to start doing things for your health and this is such a valuable first step. I want to wish you the best. follow all the rules, the things I didn't do right can be a lesson for all of you. do not drink before and after or even during your meals like I did. Portion control is a huge one...just because you can eat it doesn't mean you should, stop, put the fork down, before you get too full,. you can and will stretch out your pouch, I did and I regret it so much, that is why the second surgery is looming for me. I am here, for help, questions, anything. I have no one to blame for the failure of this tool but myself, I didn't use it correctly, I broke it. Now I need to fix it. and if I can help anyone along the way, just let me know.

    CONGRATULATIONS! I am one week post op. I was SO NERVOUS! But now that it is done, I feel great! Every day gets a little better! Hope today went well for you!
  4. I am so excited. How are you doing? I don't know if I did the pre-op diet right. We will see.
