  1. I know it's early, but wondering if there's any one else getting ready to get banded in September? I have one more Ins required weigh in Aug 19 then my paperwork gets submitted for approval! I was already told I'm on the schedule for September 27! Fingers crossed!

    Anyone getting banded in Nov?

    Today is my one year bandiversary! Weight day of surgery was 345lbs this am 315.8lbs Not as low as my goal of 175lbs but I'll get there one day at a time! My band and I haven't always gotten along and as of right now she's in timeout with some fluid removed- she was making her presents known too well with causing me pain. Hopefully next week she can get ungrounded and get her fluid back and start acting right again!

    help, advice please!

    Have you have any success in getting any relief?
  5. I went to the local support group here at the hospital but I'm the only bander as the hospital doesn't even do bands! Would love to meet up and share war stories!
  6. Had a fill today. First one since December. I had .4 cc put in- so I'm now at 8.4 didn't even know I had 8 thought I only had 7. Anyway I can't keep anything down. All I have tried is Water and I have been sick a dozen or so times since the fill about 4 hours ago. I have never had this happen before. Should I try and ride it out or go to the er and see if they can remove some Fluid?

    Don't know if this is normal?

    Had an appt with the nurse practitioner today and she put 5 cc back in the band! Thanks everyone for listening and letting me vent! This was a wake up call for me and I'm going to use this band as the tool it's intended and get this weight off!

    Don't know if this is normal?

    Thank you all for your kind words. I should get a call today from the nurse practitioner that has been seeing me. I just moved across Country so this is a new practice to me and I had never met one of the doctors until last night in the er. He said they have been moving away from the lapband and the long term care of the band. That makes me mad and sad because I had to jump through hoops to even get them to take me on as a patient and just yesterday I paid $180 for their 12 support group sessions and 6 exercise sessions I had to agree to to be seen by them! I have not lost a whole lot since surgery. I was 345 at surgery and was 333.3 yesterday - feel that's a loss I could have done without all stress of the band. The band is definitely not for the weak hearted. And it's no where as easy as they claim in the commercials. Even after the band you will still be dieting. I have even bought the coffee bean extract and some other diet pill. Something I would never have expected to be buying trying to lose weight post band. Sorry for the vent. I'm frustrated.

    I get stuck all the time due to I'm horrible and eat to fast to big of bites. This is totally my fault.

    They took 8 cc out so now my band is basically empty this makes me feel like a failure.

    I've had the band since November and this is the first time this has happened to me. I think the issue was I ate before I went(which is fine to do) and had a stuck episode so I think the swelling from that plus the fill was just to much.

    I called the on call number and they have me going to the er now

    Any Arizona bansters?

    I am getting banded in September! I can't wait I just want to meet people local and have a support system in place! I haven't told many people I know about the surgery as I don't want their negative opinions. I am going through True Results in Scottsdale for the surgery.
  14. Hello! Just got banded on Nov 7 2013! Looking for friends or more

    Help! Banded This Morning.

    Definitely sounds like gas! I had the same thing. Walking an the gas x strips helped a lot. A lot of people say to use a heating pad (I didn't have one to use) I had a sore neck and jaw figured it was from the Anesthesiologist.

    Ok AZ people! Some of us have decided to meet up and get to know each other in person! It's kind of impromptu so hopefully everyone that wants to com can make it! Tuesday November 19th at 1230 at the Chandler Mall Food Court area. Hopefully we can make this a monthly thing? Hope to see everyone there! I'm excited can't wait!
  18. Hello! I was suppose to be a September bandster, but was denied by my Ins because of a 1.8lb gain. I am currently jumping through more hoops. I have two more weigh ins and hope I get approved this time and will get banded November 14!
