I've had weight issues for as long as I can remember but I have never been this heavy. It 1st started to get out of control after my one and only child was diagnosed with autism. I literally ate my way through to acceptance from 205 to 240 pounds. After I came to accept my son's condition I was able to gain some control of my food intake while I also fought to get my son to be productive...
I have my surgery set for 11/4/15 and i had the lapbad done in 2009 then removed in 2014. This revision is making me so nervous, more so than when i had the lapband. I have had weight issues all my life and I am at my heaviest today. Any tips for post op? Is it similar to lapband post op? How long does it usually take take to get to stage 3 soft foods?
