  3. Hi Judy, I think we have all been in the same boat that you are in at one point of our lapband. just try to take one day at a time, write down everything you eat and than go back and see what changes you can make.

    Introduction - Lap Band Rookie

    Hi Jill, I went to Mexico for my surgery also, that has been 3 yrs ago this month. You will most likely be there just over night. You'll be sleeping a lot. When your not sleeping you'll be walking. Good Luck!!!

    Question on Slipped Band

    My band slipped on May 24. I was very sick. Throwing up everything! I could not hold my head up. It was really bad. I have had my band for almost 3 years. My doctor was able to save my band. I feel great now just having to start over with the liquids and etc. Trust me if your band has slipped you will know it...Good luck to you!

    moon surface on stomach, 6 days post -op

    Hi I had a band slippage also, My stomach was twisted. I was so....sick could'nt even hold my head up. Thank God for Dr Carroll in Jackson Ms. I had surgery on the night of may 26th. Dr Carroll was able to save my band. He did a wonderful job. I went home the next day. I'm having to start all over again. I'm on liquids, did'nt remember it being this hard. Ha! Anyway I'm on the road to recovery thanks to Dr Carroll...

    Where are you MS folks?

    Sounds like things are going well for you. Good Luck!!!
  15. Don't be scared, If you are doing everything right he has no reason to be mad at you. I would get him to check for a leak. If all eles fails try to find another fill doctor that you feel comfortable with. Let me know how it goes...

    throat gurgling?

    I am almost 24 months out. I still have strange noises coming from my thoart. Though my band might be to tight, but I only have 1.5cc in a 4cc band. Go figure!
  24. How can they put 4.1cc in a 4cc band? Is'nt that too much restriction?
