I am 4 weeks out from my surgery. I have not lost any significant amount of weight since Dec. 27th. In fact, my new scale says I am 0.6 lbs up. (I am not liking my new scale right now.)
I do not have "restriction" -- I can actually eat anything, any size of bite. However, I do get full with smaller amounts of food. In fact, if it weren't for the scars and feeling my port "lump", I would thingk I've had nothing done at all and there is no lap band in there! Note: I see my doctor the 24th and I am expecting my first fill. Perhaps this may change.
I am eating "normal" food and have found nothing I am not able to eat.
I am frustrated. Have I spent all this money and survived all the pain and discomfort for a loss of only 34 pounds? That is NOT acceptable.
