  1. Stuck In The Middle Can Anyone Advise

    Hi, Thanks for replying. I was nervous because I have went and had to get some of the fill taken out because I wasn't able to eat anything. I'm sorry I didn't mean to post that I don't need any more fills cause indeed I do or will from time to time, but yes ma'am. Thanks for replying.
  2. Stuck In The Middle Can Anyone Advise

    Hi Everyone, Is there currently anyone on the forum or site should I say that has had the Lap band and it has been a year + or more? I had the surgery 2010 and I am now at the point to where I don't have to go in to get any more fills because I am at the level to where I am satisfied however, I have noticed I have gained a few pounds is this common like 7 pounds to be exact I hadn't been back since March of this year , and I haven't changed any of which I was previously doing. I thought I may revert back to the protein shakes and pre operative surgery diet to see if that makes a difference. If anybody can help I would appreciate it . Thanks!
  3. converting from lap band to gastric bypass

    I wanted to know is it common for one to have the lap band and decide they want the gastric bypass. Is this safe?
  4. Lap Band already done and considering Gastric

    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?
  5. 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?
  6. 3rd fill- Tightness , discomfort, normal?

    Hello all, Up until this point I have really been like seriously is this band working? I wanted to know does this mean I am going to see results ? I am hardly able to eat anything everything kind of have its own way of going down. I was able to eat full course meals now it is reduced (Which is a good thing) but yes I wanted to know if this is normal.
  7. Banded on Wednesday...

    Thanks guys! I am as I mentioned just a little sore around the incisions but they did tell me that is normal. As far as the band goes sometimes - it seems like it gets uncomfortable . I don't know if that is normal but I go to the doctor next week so hopefully all is well. I cannot wait to get the clearance and see how things are going.
  8. Banded on Wednesday...

  9. Surgery Tomorrow

    Hey guys, I am not really a nervous wreck on surgery tomorrow but I do need to know what I can expect . Different people say different things as far as what I look forward to but I wanted to know first hand what I can expect...
  10. Being obese a very serious health concerns that coincides with several other health conditions. When a person takes the initiative to improve their health by making that decision, they get put down. I remember when I first mentioned to a group of friends that I was having the lap band they all were saying the worst. It didn't deter me from doing what I set my mind to do but it just made me realize that as long as I am having problems people are fine but when I overcome all that is when the hating begins. What you guys think?
