    Considering another procedure?

    Sorry to hear you are going through all of this Ace. Hopefully the defill will help. Sorry I have no advice. I'm on my second band....zero weight loss. Good luck.
  3. Hi Marymo. I got a new band placed, filled to 6cc. Recovery was much easier this time. Getting another fill next week. 8.15 sounds like alot of Cc's. Are you hungry? Im still hungry almost every hour or two. Are they suspecting a slow leak with your band? (Thats what i had). My fingers are crossed for you. ☺
  4. My surgery is booked for tues. Sept 16th. No testing done. He thinks its more than likely a port leak. Lets hope he's right. Why are you continuing with the barium swallow Mary? Keep us posted. Hope you had a great vacation. Mine starts eight days after surgery. Liz
  5. How are you doing Marymo? I wanted to update you. My band should be 6.2, Its down to under 5mls in one week. They sent me home and said my doctor would call me for surgery dates performed at a local hospital. Hope you are doing well and had a great weekend. Again thank you so much for sharing your experience. Liz
  6. You have a great point Mary. So true!! Liz
  7. Thank you Mary. Ive got to try to be assertive, because i feel ignored. Its been five months. They are re-checking fill amount tuesday. I feel no sensation of having a lapband even after a fill. I wish that we had a support group.
  8. Left my fill appointment. Im regaining weight. Three pounds total loss. I was banded five months ago. Band is losing saline. Is supposed to be 6.2. It was just under 4 mls.
  9. Seeing the dietician in two weeks. Good to know your fill amount, Thx Mary. I will be a bit embarrassed to show my food journal. I had ice-cream.
  10. Congrats on the 40 pound weight loss Mary!! The rest will come.
  11. Thanks for sharing your experience. I recieved a fill last week (now 6.2ml perhaps not enough for any kind of sensation yet?). Ive started swimming. Having saline removed next tuesday to check amount in the band.
  12. Hello Marymo. Im looking forward to meeting everyone. Sorry, i have no news of any meetings yet. I was banded almost five months ago. No weightloss yet. Hope you are doing well with the band.
  13. Congratulations!! Thank you for sharing. Wishing you a speedy recovery.
  14. Hi Nancy, I will join. Im in Vaughan. Banded April 2nd by Dr. Cobourn. Its been ten weeks and I have only lost 5 pounds. I am very discouraged. Not sure if I will attend a meeting though because I feel like a lapband failure. Liz

    Any April Banders?

    Glad you are feeling better, and stopped the liquid vicodin CCCV4. That sounded a little scary.
