  1. I am in the same boat. I was sleeved on Dec 20, 2016 and have only lost 23 lbs
  2. I am getting a band to sleeve revision next month and I was wondering if anyone still gets heartburn after their sleeve operation. My friend that was sleeved last December says that she sometimes wakes up literally choking because of the stomach acids coming up at night. Does this happen to anyone? What causes it and how do I prevent it? Thanks
  3. I have an appointment Wednesday to see if I can get a revision to the sleeve. I am paying cash since insurance won't cover it. I was wondering if I will have to go through all the testing again if I am paying cash. I really don't want to wait another 6 months to have surgery. Also, did anyone have any complications from the revision? Any regrets? Were you finally able to lose the weight?
  4. How do I get back in touch with my band? I got a fill a couple of weeks ago and I can still overeat. I thought the fill would help. I was checked out and everything was fine with the band. The nurse mentioned maybe going back on all liquids for a week and maybe that would help or doing all protein for a while. Has anyone else been told this to get back in touch with their band? I don't know if I can do a meat only diet. I did Atkins diet one time and got so sick of meat that I couldn't stomach it for a while. I don't think a meat only diet is sustainable in the long run. I need to learn to eat healthy for the rest of my life. Any advice would be appreciated.

    I can't eat all my points. Since I have the band it would be really hard to do so. I follow the WW healthy guidelines and adjust my points to how much I can eat.

    Starting over.... Again

    Shelby, I felt like that too but I finally got enough courage to go back in for a fill. I just knew I was gonna get yelled at or belittled but they were so nice and so supportive and I felt encouraged when I left there. Trust me, you won't be the only one they have seen that has gained weight.
  7. I have had 2 fills so far & can't even tell I have the lap band. I still get hungry between meals & can eat as much food as before. Is this normal? For those of you that are in the green zone how many fills did it take for you to get there?

    Today is the day!

    Good luck today. I might see you up there. I have to be there at 7 for an EGD. Let us know how things went. I'm so excited for you! Lisa
  10. I am having an EGD done in the morning and was wondering what to expect. Has anyone had this done prior to their lap band surgery. My doctor is Dr. Reilly and I was told that he requires all his patients to have one in case of hiatal hernia. I have heartburn really bad. In fact I have to take Zantac every night before I go to bed but I really don't think I have hiatal hernia. Anyway I was just wondering what to expect before & after the procedure.
