9 days post-op
Ok, here it is 9 days post-op. My wound is draining and really itchy. I am hungry almost all of the time but don't have a taste for anything.
I have lost a total of 11 lbs. 5 lbs prior to surgery and 6 lbs post. I am doing everything I am supposed to be doing, everything.
I somehow feel I should be losing more, or should have lost more already. But my spirits are high and I feel well and am adjusting to life with the band.
I do sometimes look jealously at people eating and think oh they can eat that because they don't have a lap-band! I have come to realize that there is a lot more to the psychological aspect of being banded than people would think...
