I had my lap band fitted 25th June 2011. I've not gained any weight, but I've not lost any either. I haven't had much useful info from the medical team and am looking on line to find out how others have had such great results. There are some very inspirational stories out there so I know it must work! My biggest issue is that my size has effected my capacity or activity. I have very bad hip pain which I take daily medication for. I'm hoping to lose some weight as I think swimming would help shift the pounds without impacting my joints.
I have two children and a lovely partner/ I don't want to be skinny, just healthy :)
