Had a band 3 years ago was 19 st went to 12 St but now 13 st , with the band I hate throwing most of the time , can't eat meat it gets stuck , hate that if I'm out need to see where I can throw if needed before I even sit down , fills and defills every time we go on hoilday , so in a week and a half having it out and a sleeve done :) can't wait !!! Got heeps of lower body skin even though I've worked hard at the gym so in 6 months having a lower body lift , with this band food is still needing to b at the forefront of my mind and I don't want it to b anymore !!! Going to Brno though beautiful beings will let u know how it goes :)

Today I'm really worried they have said that I need to have a camera down my throat before the op ( they do it with everyone to make sure everything good ) well I know I can't do that !!!!!!!!! Hope there ready for me to say nope !!! I just can't do that , that's the only thing I'm worried about , I've had to put on 1/12 stone for the op as I was to light , HATE BEING SO FAT !!!!!! 14-3 now , need this to come off really fast , plz god let this work fast for me , yes I'm asking for much but my head is feeling a bit messed up , I feel like I look the same as I did when I was 19 stone , my tummy is gross , I feel gross !!! I want to wake up 11 stone , how mad is that ! I want to feel nice again , back to that laying in one place when I'm in bed with the hubby , feel so ugly :( ooo nooo on. Right rant now !!!! Plz plz let this happen fast , I need to feel nice !!!!!!!!! 4 kids , 1 sec , hysterectomy , years of Hiding behind my fat , 47 years old and I need to feel GOOD ABOUT MYSELF , really worried this op won't for for me and I don't know why !!!!!!!

Home :) 6 days post op

Hi , got there mon night did lots of paper work and had bloods , tests started at 5 in the morning chest X-rays , scans of liver, kidney, heart more bloods ecg , saw a psychologist she was great as u all know I was NOT having the camera thing , that goes back to when I was 12 and having my stomach pumped , she told me to live for the now not past which is very true so I went down stairs , did tell the man he had 4 mins only to do what he needed to do , he got it that I wasn't messing around thank god lol and did it !!!! When went to surgery , mine took longer than expected becuse my liver and kidneys had lots of adhesions , I woke with really really bad chest pain , had a drain and Catherta ( spellings pants soz ) my whole body was shaking head to toes , them not being able to speak good English( was in the Czech Republic ) was not good , I did sleep for hours and was really knocked out with pain killers , my chest still really bad though , had another chest X-ray then went on chest meds , I remerbered reading on this site about someone with the same thing and that a nurse had said the gas had got behind her lungs and that they could collapse , I was sure I was heading that way , the nurse on here had said to hold your arms around yourself real tight and cough as much as she could so this is what I done for 2 days and my pain went ! Got to say my tummy pain was not bad , I was lucky not to b very much , I slept a lot but everything I was awake got up and walked , also read that that helped on this site , Thursday had my drain out not bad at all , my doc Jedlicka Vaclav very very good came every day and I felt confident with him ! Could not say the same about most of the nursing staff , on liquids only that's ok not feeling at all hungry , not going to lie 1st few days r hard but doable if u no what I mean , the thing I feel is overwhelming tiredness , will post in a few day (Surgal Clinic )

I think becuse I've had the band before this feels like I've done this all before so just hurry up !!! Got to say everythings been great with the tummy though no side effects at all , which I know I've been very lucky with !

Well all I can say is I love it !!!!I love my surgeon even with my tummy just done I love that swelling and I love the fact my boobs are where they are supposed to be lol , really cannot believe all my skin has just gone it was amazing he went really wild on my hips my hanging Mary that's what I call it is hanging no more lol it doesn't look like an old granny's one , he saw the light blue skin on my side at the top of my back and said while I'm there I'll try and sort that out which is he did by putting slightly wider new boobs in ! and a slightly wider cut , The nipples are supposed to sit 21 from your collarbone one of mine was 28 1/2 the other was 29 , he put back my tummy muscles by 8 cm they were 8 cm apart oh my god now I have a wasist , I cannot believe I can see straight from my top half to my bottom half !!! I asked him why he was a cosmetic surgeon he said because I like perfect symmetry and I like seeing my result , my pain is really good I've had a walk out for lunch then back to the hotel and tired and I have a laydown but I cannot believe how great I feel , when I get home I'll put all his details on this site because I think considering what I gave him to work with he was fantastic ????????????????????????
