By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog

Preparing For Lap Band surgery -- What To Have On Hand.
By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
I often get hung up in the details of things, planning to the nth degree, but somehow, even after attending support groups before surgery, and following my doctor's instructions, I still did not have everything I needed in the house for right after my Lap Band® surgery.

By: Sandi Henderson From SandisBandedLiving Blog
On May 28th 2004 I never expected that when I woke up on the other side of my bariatric surgery that THIS is the life I could have. My reasons for having surgery were to stay alive, get off some of my medications and be able to just "live". I was slowly dying, getting heavier every year, having more illnesses (all due to obesity) show up at each doctor's visit. I wasn't living. I barely existed. It could only get worse. At 424 pounds I was pretty restricted. . . . keep reading
