One Week Post-op

I am feeling pretty good today. I still get some pain where my port is if I move around too much. I go on Monday to get my staples removed, that should be fun. Yeah right!

I am starting to feeling the effects of the band. I was eating some sherbert tonight and I had to stop suddenly because I was getting a weird sensation in my tummy. I still felt hungry but I felt like I couldn't take another bite. Then I started to get pain across my back. I guess this is what stuffed feels like? All of these new sensations in my tummy are so foreign. My stomach growls so loud now. I am sure everyone around would know I was hungry if I was out in public!

The scale still reads the same. I have been having a hard time getting enough water in because of having to wait to drink after I eat.

I have my first meal out tomorrow and I am nervous! I am going out to lunch with a friend that does not know about my band. Thank goodness the restaurant we are going to has soup!

Hooray for soup...a new Bander's best friend (I would 'drink' most of the broth first and then work on the solids...it will allow more to go down if you're worried about appearances). So glad you're doing well Bander!!! ;-)

You will figure it all out in no time. Everyone is different, but I think your instinct kicks in when you have had enough food. You are doing great!
