Charlotte's Corner

My lapband surgery was March 29, 2010.
I chose to stay in the hospital overnight and am so glad I did.

My surgeon was Dr. Bright from Spokane, WA. and I can't say enough good things about him. I have had muscle spasms that felt worst than the surgery.

I thought I was ready to meet the world head on with meeting the quotas for protein, vitamins, and liquids.

This morning I woke up at 3:30am and decided "if it was to be, it was up to me" to dig deeper for help. Got up and on the internet, found your site along with a wealth of knowledge. Thank you for covering each phase of the post-op eating.

I now feel I have the tools to get on with handling the various aspects of achieving a quality life style.

Hi Charlotte!
I had my band done on March 24, 2010! I have the Realize band, and I am doing well, but tiring of full liquids. I like this site as well, lots of info I didn't get from my surgeon or nutrition counselor. I will continue to follow up here. If you want we can email each other as a buddy system!!!
