After the lap band was installed in 2012 I spent some time adjusting the fill level; once that was done I lost weight.  My lowest was 206 which meant that, for the one day I weighed 206, I was only overweight instead of obese.  I started regaining after that, in 2021 the reflux was so bad that I had to have my band unfilled. I promptly gained 20 pounds on top of the 40 I had already regained. Currently pursuing revision to bypass (not sleeve since that also has reflux issues) and lack only the medical and cardiac approval. Insurance has approved the surgery. I'm planning to have it late February 2022.
On March 21, 2022 I had my lapband removed, a hiatal hernia repaired and gastric bypass done. All went well, as of today, one month later, I am on mushies and have lost 37.7 pounds since starting the pre-op liquid diet.
