I was perusing Lapband Talk today and found a great question being posed by a potential bandster. The question was:
What is the one thing you wish someone had told you BEFORE you got your LAP-BAND?
Good question right?
I am interested to hear your answers.
For me, as I have stated many times...I was under the assumption (and remember I did my research and took my required nutrition classes from the doctors office) that after surgery, I would only be able to eat about one ounce of food or broth, and that would satisfy me. They even give us little one ounce cups to take home.
No one told me that after I healed I would be as hungry as a horse and be able to eat like a cow. No one told me that until restriction, I would have to rely on willpower!
If someone did tell me, perhaps I didn't hear them. But I was surprised and I think it is important for bandbabies or potential bandsters to expect bandster hell.
So what you? What do you wish you knew or had been told?
