How many fills until you felt restriction

6 posts in this topic

I am going for my fifth fill on Thursday and I still have not felt much restriction. I'm starting to feel real discouraged. The took all of my fill out and measured so I don't have a leak. I had my lapband in September.

I am a little over a year in from getting my lap band. November 2015. I struggled with it because just its placement in my body caused restriction. Believe it or not I'm going to get my first adjustment next week because I now I have days I feel restricted but I can still push through and eat. Everyone is different. I went a whole year restricted without any adjustments and in my first six to eight months I lost 124 lbs. But within the 3 and a half months I've gained almost 20 and I'm struggling to get back in the swing of things
