    Well after a beautiful 2 years and 7 months relationship with my band I had to get the fluid removed for medical reasons. I am being told to eat enough to prepare my body for what is to come.. I am worried about putting the weight back on. I am seriously considering ‘ a Keto diet’. Any advise. xx

    Most surgeons put some fluid in the band at surgery. You’ll know at you first fill.

    Disappearing lapbanders

    @beccagib08 try massaging a mixture of peppermint oil with baby oil into the painful areas where you feel the gas at least 3 times a day

    Hello everyone

    Keep up
  9. I've traveled from the UK to The USA with 6.4 ml in my 10 ml band. First day was reasonably ok. 2nd nothing other than fluids is staying down . HELP!!
  10. We women are most time supportive to our husbands/ partners regarding WLS but they can never return the favour. Is it because the feel insecure that we are looking better and feeling happier with ourselves?

    POST-op LAP band - Day 2

    My best luck in maintaining hydration was warm or hot fluids. Cold fluids causes constriction and more pain. Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App
  23. I think if we stick to PVC = eating in the order of Protein, Vegetables then Carbohydrates we will see some improvement. I tend to go the opposite way at times. Thus consuming a lot of the wrong foods.
  24. At 6 cc now and feeling full with small amounts. Sent from my iPhone using the BariatricPal App
