That being said, I've been fighting the Hunger Demon quite unsuccessfully lately, so I had a fill today. 0.3cc's added, to make a total of 7cc in my 10cc band. The Nurse Practitioner said this is the top end of where they like to be with this band. So if I continue to have hunger issues, or any other issues, she will do a barium swallow in two weeks. Otherwise, I'll have one done at my Bandiversary in July.
I'm so happy that Governor Christie has gone public with his Lap Band surgery. Most of the news reports have gotten the information correct, saying that the band provides hunger control. I only heard one news agency get it wrong when they said, "The band prevents you from eating too much." No it doesn't. I can still eat a pan of brownies if I wanted to. The difference is, I don't want to.
I say the more good press about weight loss surgery, the better. Just the fact that it encourages people to talk about it is a good thing. Obesity is an epidemic. Anything to combat obesity will prolong life and improve the quality of life.
Have a great week, everyone!
AND THANK YOU, FELLOW NURSES, FOR ALL THAT YOU DO!!
