After surgery, was there a liquid diet to follow? How long was the recovery? Were there any side effects?
Is this a lap band that can be adjusted or loosened later on?
There was a pre-op and post-op diet. To this point that accounts for the majority of the weight I've lost. Following surgery there was a week of liquid only, then soft foods. I had surgery on Nov. 17th and by Thanksgiving I was eating some mashed potatoes and stuffing. The recovery has been very easy for me. I had surgery on Thursday and was back to work on Monday morning, a bit sore, but back. The Lap-Band is adjustable, and I've been in for two adjustments already bu have another one or two needed before it really starts to make an impact (which is normal).
