I've read some of your other posts about lapband surgery ... and I posted on these boards to try to find some info out about cruising with lapband, but really found more information about lapband itself.
One week ago I had lapband surgery, and I go in next Thursday for my post-op check-up. I will be on liquids for one more week and then will move to soft foods for food weeks (total of 6 weeks). Right around the time that I will get my first fill and conquently move to solids, I will be going on a cruise.
I will be cruising when I am 8 weeks post-op. I am interested in any experiences you might be able to share ... I will talk to my surgeon about what is best (first fill before or after cruise) ... I am really sort of leaning to after cruise. But I am interested in any tips or challenges that you can share about cruising,eating, and drinking (alcohol) after lap-band.
