9 days

I have 9 days to surgery. Wondering if I should start liquids now or wait 2 more days? Mondays always seam like a good day to start things. What about sex after surgery? How long do you have to wait?

Geez. Good question about the sex. Have no clue cause I'm preband, but will be interested to see if anybody knows. If not, I'll be asking my doc.

I think I waited on the sex until about 2-3 weeks out. I didn't ask my surgeon and he didn't tell me one way or the other.

As far as the liquids go, I would say wait until you absolutely have to. I am sure you are anxious to get this show on the road, but pre-op liquids are pretty miserable.

Wait until you absolutely have to for the liquids...you have another 2 weeks of liquids waiting for you after surgery...so enjoy some real foods the next two days...you will miss them. I forget, your surgeon is Eaton or Castillo?

My surgon is Castillo. Ok I will be in Medford tomarrow for all the the pre-op stuff all day, maybe I will go out to lunch. Thanks Bandets.

I think the sex thing is whenever you feel ready. I think I was also about 2-3wks out. I would enjoy what time you have left with real food! Liquids was way harder than I thought!!

Same surgeon that did my band! :) He is awesome. He also did Jen's band surgery from "Jen is gonna lose it". Have you been to her blog? By the way, have you checked out the Obesity Help message boards for bandsters? Here's the link: http://www.obesityhelp.com/forums/lapband/a,messageboard/

I was told sex could happen immediately after but not to put any weight on the incisions, etc...Not that I really felt like it for a couple weeks.

Hi Christine! I just found your blog and will be Following you! I too am one of the blogger's who is at least 50! I am 54.

I was banded on 11/19/09 and although my Surgeon didn't say not to have sex immediately, I waited until my 6 week check up.

Mostly because I over did it about 2 weeks out from Surgery, and caused my Port to hurt like hell for a while. So I decided not to over do it again until I was sure I had recovered from Surgery.

I live in the Sacramento area but will be staying overnight in Medford, OR on September 22nd and September 26th. Is it possible to meet while we are in your area on one of these days?
