Oh this is a very long story so I will give a brief summary instead. I was banded in April, 2008. By August, 2009, I had lost 181 lbs and was at goal (140 lbs).  I've had three fills but I dont know how many CCs I've had.  I have had no complications from the band and would do this over in a heart beat!  The best advise I can give anyone looking to be banded is - DO YOUR RESEARCH!! Know what to expect and take doctors advice seriously.
