The Troll has spoken.....LMAO

Yes.is is unfortunate that some people get a band and then become the Forum expert (only in their mind) don't want to hear anything negative . Then will say it must be something YOU did, because they know everything about bands. And lack empathy towards others I like being the Forum Troll. I like not living in the land of perfection. But I'm allot happier than you'll ever be. If anyone is looking for true support with your band check out facebook.....Allot less proclaimed bands experts there. :)

I don't understand why you hang here, if you loathe everyone so much?

We really don't mind hearing about bands not working, but when ppl start posting old out of date info and claiming it to be true, kinda gets under our skin.

Fact is there are a few complications , ask msmaui, that are no fault of the patient. But the majority of complications are from non compliance.

So if you want ppl to say, its ok, eat & drink whatever you want and as much as you want and the problems you are having with your band is the bands fault, not yours. That's just not going to happen.

I think it's unfortunate that some people have to drone on and on about their misfortune. I have found nothing but good advice and encouragement on this group... no one has purported themselves to be experts.. That being said I do find it easier to take information from successful people on here than people who have a hard time understanding the rules.. I don't think everyone who has had problems is at fault but I do think there is a fair percentage just like anything else that like to place blame on anyone but themselves. so, my advice to you is to go to another board where you can whine and gripe... we've all seen and heard enough negativity and frankly it's tiresome.. so if you are happy then act like it and move on..

Hello all! I am a bit new to all this and I find this site rather helpful in helping me make my decision. I just wanted to hear honest experiences (good and bad) from everyone so I know what I am getting myself into. As with anything... everyone may have a different experience which is why I think this is a pretty good site.

If these things bother you so much, then why make yourself more aggravated by coming here and reading it. We all have had our times and our days of people in general getting on our nerves but for the most part those of us that have been banded for a long time certainly are not going to sit back and watch other fill their guts with pizza and cake three days post op and not say anything. Some people just need a swift kick once in a while.

Jackie, sorry your experience wasn't what you expected. I stay out of the threads where there is neg info given and the poster is called out as a troll...I just don't want any part of that stuff.

If I had complications, I wouldn't feel okay posting it on this site. There is def a group of ppl who can't handle the possibility that they could be there someday. Live and let live.

I know that the longer I have my band the more I risk complications. Once I reach goal, I'm going to gradually unfill and then prolly have it removed once I maintain for 6 months or so. It's a tool...it's going back in the box once I'm done using it. Better safe than sorry....

Well, Jackie, I was fascinated to see in your profile that you are now 98 years old. That has to make you the oldest troll in the history of the Internet. I can see why you're so proud of yourself. If your parents were still alive, I'll bet they'd be mighty proud of you too.

You might want to rethink putting your band back in the box after you've lost weight. People who lose weight and have their band removed (for whatever reason) are very likely to regain all that weight. That's mostly because obesity is a chronic,. incurable disease.

Opps my bad must have been a typo ...lol Didn't realize age was a prerequisite for being a Troll since I've seen the term on here before. But as I mentioned before, If your a resident in Michigan and live under the great Mackinaw Bridge then your a TROLL.My parents are extremely PROUD of me Jean , but thanks for asking

Well, I'm pretty confident that the lifestyle changes I've made (diet, exercise, counseling) will carry over post band. I was fully aware that according to the mfg it's not a "lifetime device" and most likely will need removed or replaced, when I signed consent. Rather than have a removal/replacement surgery every 5-10 years, I'm committed to sticking to my plan of healthier eating and exercise. To suggest that all bansters who have their bands removed are doomed to fail isn't really fair, is it?

About as fair as JackieO posting outdated statistics as fact.j/s

Jean's statement is closer to fair, being statistics show weight gain after band removal.

I hope and pray your lifestyle change does stick. I'd like to think that also.
