I'm With The (Lap) Band

Monday, August 28, 2006


Ok - I've done it. I've made an appointment with Dr. J's office for my first fill in almost 9 months - or at least a check-up of the band.

Wednesday, September 6 - 1:30 pm - No Excuses!

  • I was searching for Lap Band Blogs and came across yours. I got my band in June of this year! I am doing well with it but, just needed to vent some...and hear others stories.

    My site is Eating after the Band.

    Hope that you are doing well, Bows

  • Hi Liz.... I have just spent the last 2 hours reading your blog from start to finish... I finally had the LB surgery 15 days ago.

    I have been writing a blog for a couple of years on and off, and reall got motivated to write it more regularly when decided to have surgery.

    I would REALLY like to know how you are getting on. PLEASE UPDATE YORU BLOG... You told us to beg you in a previous post!!! :o)

    I have had completely different route to you, maybe you want to read it one day?


    I am from Cambridgeshire, England and I opted to have my surgery in Belgium for financial reasons. I paid for it myself and it cost just under $8000 for the whole package (surgery, hotel, travel etc)

    I would love to keep in touch, because we dont have any support groups around here, so its just me and another girl who had surgery same day as me.

    PLEASE update yoru blog, as I would REALLY love to know how you are doing.

    I have lost exactly 14lbs so far in 15 days.

    Thanks for writing your blog. Its given me inspiration,

  • Nice blog! I've been researching about getting the Lapband myself. I found a really useful Lapband web site at http://LapBandTalk.com .

  • Hi,

    I'm Maria, 39 from Australia. I don't think I can afford lap band surgery though my doctor wants me to have it. I have a consulation booked in with a surgeon in July - but we can't afford to be $2,500 out of pocket (even with insurance.. so we're told). I have many health related problems due to my weight -so this is why for the first time in my life I'm saying "well.. ok what if I had this done somehow"?

    I've read your blog from start to finish tonight - and yeah, I'd love to know where you're at.

    I hope you're well.

  • Cool blog you got here. I'd like to read something more about this theme. The only thing I would like to see on that blog is a photo of some jammer.

  • Interesting article you got here. I'd like to read something more about that theme. The only thing that blog misses is some pics of any devices.

  • Hello, please update--it's 2011.. Many people are wondering whether the Lap-Band is a good or a bad choice. Many of us want to know if it really works...or not.

    Pretty please? Your help would be much appreciated!

    Thanks & hope everything's alright with you.

  • Liz, I found your blog today, courtesy of Ravelry where I was poking around. Although I was trying to find an up-to-date blog entry, I am finding lots of interesting reading. This one itself piques my interest as I too am a bandit. Good luck.
