Band to Gastric Bypass

5 posts in this topic

 265 lbs. I had the lap band put in 2008 had it removed on 265 lbs. 12/16 due to GERD and reflux and did not lose the weight.  I started to lose weight to prepare for my gastric bypass so I actually lost a few pounds after the band removal.  It was a tough recovery about 3 weeks. I did not have to go on a liquid diet or anything after the removal.  

270 lbs I had my gastric bypass surgery now I'm about 2 weeks out and I'm at 253 lbs :O) yeah! So far so good a little bit of nausea like 2 days all is good :O)

Tough to go through a revision, but if you need it, you need it. Congrats on the 27 lbs down! Are you eating purees or still on liquids?
