my name is Val , I'm married with 2 grown girls. I'm 46 and I've had 3 back surgeries. I also will need 2 more someday .I'm hoping with having lapband done , I'll loss enough weight that I get my back and leg stronger. After my lapband my left shoulder hurt alot and my stomach hurt till a couple days ago now it only hurts at times. It still hurts when I yawn also on the left side it hurts but not as much as it did
I can sleep on my back and my right side but so far I haven't been able to sleep on my left side and that's the side I usually sleep on . I had to change sides of the bed with my husband . We're both not comfortable but I couldn't even get up from the bed on the right side. I 'm gonna try to go back to my side of the bed tonight !! I hope I don't wake up in pain . I love sweets , Iv'e been making recipes from a cookbook named The Sneaky Chief and they are good , they're also good for the bran cause I have a problem with constipation . My pain med's have the side affects which give me constipation but drinking water ( which is hard ) and the bran cookies help .

11/05/09 I had my band and one yr later exact I had it turned around.

Band fixed...

Other Information:
I love my I-phone.

11/05/09 I had my band put in and A yr later 11/05/10 I went in to have my band fixed . It needed to be flipped over . Somehow it flipped the wrong way. It went good so far. I go in 11/15/10 to have it checked.

He had to take out 3 cc's when he did it cause he didn't want my tummy get too tight.

Im hoping he puts it back in when I go in for my visit.

Healing is going really well . I didn't do too much over the week end but today ( MOn. ) I did what I usually do and Im ok so far.

Im bloated some but its going down some.

Im glad its over . But it was a fast procedure compared to when they 1st put it in.

I baby my doggies.

I can't wait till August !
That's when I get my daughters Lap-Top! Yeh !

Found a new collar for doggie's to walk them and Love it!!
It goes around the nose and neck --so much easier walking them, wish I had it along time ago.

Daughter's moving to SF 5/05

    Hi Val! Thanks for commenting on my photos. Unfortunately I have gained weight since then - I'm a good 35 pounds heavier now than I was in those pictures, but looking at those is a good reminder that I need to keep moving in the right direction. We'll get there in time. emoticon
