Hi I was banded in 09 and lost 65lbs. I have gained back 10 in the last 6 months. I too was struggling with regurgitating part of my meals. I found I was so hungry headed that my first few bites were the culprit to the being stuck mode. I too thought no big deal till I found I was getting low on energy and hungry all the time. So I went and had my band unfilled part way so maybe it was slipped and needed to re-settle. So with being open I had a few items like bread and gained another 10. I got re-filled with a .50cc less this time and got back to following the "rules' of the band. I believe sometime we need that refresher to get back to our journey we had started. thank you for sharing and it's good to know there is a lot of us in the same boat. Today I am down the 5.5 llbs gain and excited to finish this journey.
Good luck everyone and let's finish this strong!!!
Dr Cherice in Nampa does them for $75.00 but you will have to pay a initial patient establishment the first time(215.00) along with the fill, then it's 142.00 office visit plus fill. Yes that's her number above.

So I was reading the small print on the registration page and if you don't stay at the Manchester it is another 100.00 fee for the event making it 200.00 to attend??? What if we have family to stay with as I was going to visit and attend the conference. Just doesn't make sense to charge more if people live in San Diego or have family there. Thanks for clarifying this.
Here is what I am reading:
