Am I the only one that has an ENFORCER for a significant other? My DH watches me like a hawk! He always has. Even when I wasn't on a diet, he would say things like, "do you really need to eat that much?", or "you should only be eating half of what I eat at most." Since the Surgery, if he thinks I am taking bites that are too large, or eating too fast, he is immediately on me to slow down or eat smaller bites, etc!! I know that this is a good thing (but hate being told so! :)). Especially when the restriction starts happening. Right now, I don't really have any restriction to speak of, so unless I am eating too fast, or too much, I really haven't had any problems yet. But in the long run, I will be happy for his help I am sure. I was just curious if your husbands or boyfriends did this too?

Now, something that I have noticed in many of the blogs I read. Many of you talk about burping a lot once you were banded. Did it start immediately? Or after you started having restriction? I am curious because so far, I haven't had any burping episodes.
Another common complaint in the blogs is, (I don't know a polite way to say it) flatulence (passing gas, farting, etc). Again, did it start immediately? Or after restriction? I ask this because I have always been gassy & so far, I haven't noticed anything more than normal, except for the first couple of days after Surgery.
Maybe this is why I didn't have the gas pains after Surgery, I wasn't afraid to let it out so to speak. :) I am sure the Nurses weren't happy to have to walk into my room!! LOL. But the Nurse did ask me if I had any gas pains the morning after Surgery, & I told her no, but that I was passing gas regularly, & she said that was great! She said that most patients are afraid to release it in an environment where someone could be coming in at any time! And since the first few days, I haven't noticed being more gassy than normal. So I'm thinking this might be something that picks up later after restriction? Or is it because many eat a lot of beans for the protein? Just curious if it is still to come or due to what ever I choose to eat in the future.
Well, I think I am done asking the embarrassing questions for now! Hope everyone has a great weekend!
