    band removal for the sleeve?

    i go to my surgeon's support group every month but i feel the people there tend to be very fake and saying the things the dr wants to hear and not being real. because to them all they ever talk about is the good things not the things that they struggle with ... and i will stick around i have been on this site for 3 years now so i'm not going anywhere

    band removal for the sleeve?

    has anyone had their band removed and got the sleeve? I am thinking of doing this not for complications reasons but the band doesn't seem to be helping me anymore.. i need some advice thanks!

    band removal for the sleeve?

    thanks for the responses ... i do have an appt with my surgeon today for a fill i think i am gonna request to get an xray to make sure my band hasn't slipped or anything and take it from there... you are right it is just a tool I think too many times i depend on it to do more than it's supposed to. I think i just need a lot of encouragement and discipline to really get back at it again and not give up if things slow down again... and i certainly was not offended by your comments/... i appreciate the input

    band removal for the sleeve?

    well the first year i lost 100 lbs and since then i have been struggling to lose any more i was sticking to the plan and excercising for a long time but then i got discouraged and stopped trying as hard because the weight stopped coming off... i feel i can eat too much and have had to have a couple unfills as things kept getting stuck and i was throwing up a lot

    To tattoo or not?

    i got a tattoo it's a lotus flower with a butterfly to signify change i've lost over 100 lbs now and my life is completely different
  12. i am 2 years out now and haven't had any really bad problems the only thing is i do get stuck sometimes and had 1 unfill and one slight unfill but I am working on getting back on track so the weight can keep coming off

    Soooo confused.

    when i was in the mushy food part I didn't lose anything because right now it is about your body healing not losing weight... when you start eating real food is when it will start with the weight loss again. My nut says between 800 and 1000 and 1200 if you work out a lot. hope this helps a little!

  17. hey all! I was diagnosed with PCOS a few years ago.... i want more than anything to have a baby and this is why i had lap band (besides getting healthy and feeling better) so anyways, i lost 104 lbs and started going to a fertility dr again a few months ago. After a round of clomid with nothing coming of it, and then 9 days of follistim and a shot of ovidril, i finally ovulated ( for the first time in my life i think) so we went home did the baby dance and now i think i am pregnant. I have been having waves of nausea, my boobs hurt when touched, mood swings, tired, headaches, white discharge. But my question is... does it sound like i am pregnant or can this still be side affects of the drugs? i can test Friday as that will be 2 weeks since i ovulated... please if anyone has any advise or been through this please respond! thanks all!

    Wanna Come To My Pity Party? :)

    was your thyroid level tested? the dr told me that if your thyroid is all out of wack that that could cause a miscarrage so the dr has me on synthroid had to take pregestone and next week hopefully starting clomid for the first time i have been trying to get pregnant for 6 years now it's why i had the band i have lost 106 lbs but still not any more fertile! Soo frustrating

    Why Am I Not Losing???

    i got to that point too after a few weeks of being banded but do not worry your body is going through a lot of changes and you will start losing again soon my nut told me that i wouldn't start losing until i started eating again which was true the weight started coming off pretty quick then you are just in bandsters hell right now it too will pass
