    Well done Mollymoo, you will be fine. I had a sleeve rather than a band and lost 5 stone. It is the best thing I've done for myself. Just take it easy.

    Best wishes

    Hi Mollymoo, well done for losing a stone on the pre op diet. Thinking of you and hope all goes well with your operation today.

    I had my op November 2014 and have had no problems, best thing to do is follow the advice given and take things slowly. I had some trapped

    wind post op in shoulder and neck. Peppermint water available from the chemist really helped with this.

    Take care look forward to hearing of your progress.
