Lap Band already done and considering Gastric

5 posts in this topic

Hello all,

i had a question. I had the lap band in March of this year. I am now what six months past that date and I am not impressed with my results. My weight is fluctuating for starters and I have changed my whole eating habit and exercising but I gained 6 lbs and I AM HOT!!! Anyway, I am strongly considering talking to my doctor about the gastric. Does anybody know what I may have to do or if I will have to go back through the weight loss process or program?

Have you ever had your lap adjusted? It often takes several to find the sweet spot that gives you maximum benefit.

Yes I have I go back on the 21st. I have went ever month excluding july and august--no fill did then since march but I am going to see what happens when I go back because I am getting frustrated. I have not ever gained any weight though but I will see how it goes and if not I am strongly going to consider this if I can . Do you know if I can do this?

People convert from lap band to bypass all the time but I would think your surgeon would want you to give the band more time to work. If they get your restriction right you should be able to lose weight. Best of luck to you. Michelle
