I had the balloon taken out after 2 months.  I was not tolerating it well.  Dr. Shieh suggested the laparoscopic hernia repair with placation of stomach.  Today is day 3 post.  I am on clear liquids and move to full liquids tomorrow.  I did loose  15 lbs. with the balloon.  Before I had the balloon I had lost 25 pounds but reach a stubborn plateau  for 7 months.  The balloon looked like a good option for more.  I just wish I could have tolerated it better.

Now 2 wks post and doing great !!  Have returned to my preferred activity.   I feel I will reach my goal weight before the end of this year.
