Pain Go Away - Riverhead, NY

I am 44 years old and just barely a week post op....

I am 44 years old and just barely a week post op. can't say yet if it was worth it but can say my doctor and her complete staff were all wonderful would recommend her to anyone but the pressure and bloating is very painful and the pain in the left shoulder is something that can only go away with pain meds that my doc gave me can't wait to eat real food again but am afraid to even eat what I am supposed to because of the gas pains hope will get better soon.. My insurance covered the whole thing except for an X-ray post surgery

I hope your feeling better & doing well! I just had mine 6 weeks ago, gas pains in left shoulder also but went away after few days. I've been looking for a lap band buddy or support group with someone who had surgery before or after me, my email is shellyinhouston@aol.com & I would love to hear from you anytime! Best of luck to you!

Hi there, welcome and thanks so much for sharing your journey with us!

Hopefully the gas pains will go away soon, they may just be a product left over from having the band placed. When do you get your first fill?


My brother in law had it done by her so my husband and I did it together she is wonderful
