    Anyone still here?

    This last year i ended up with acid reflux and meds were not controlling it . I ended up w ulcers in my stomach and throat from the reflux so we emptied my band and still had reflux so the only thing to do was remove it . I dont qualify for another WLS as my BMI is to low so im going to Mexico for the sleeve in November . I know i need a tool or i will gain all my weight back and i worked to hard to get it off

  11. You look amazing !!!!! I think at some point we all go through this fear I know I did when I had lap band 10 years ago! i just had to have the band removed last month and I wake up in the middle of the night in tears that I will gain my weight back . you have a lot of support on her with people going through the same feelings as you are
  12. I know exactly how you feel we have come to far to go backwards

    "Worst slip I've ever seen" - Dr.

    I was banded in 2006 had my band removed last month due to the last year having horrible acid reflux that caused ulcers in my throat and stomach i went for my check up and have gained 2 pounds which isn't to bad so I'm looking into weight watchers to see how I do as I know I need a tool so if I can't keep weight off ill look at getting sleeved . I was devastated losing my band. I also have a few friends who have had their bands slip its not uncommon
  14. I had my band removed last month having been banded 10 years losing 120 lbs and I feel the same as you I research the sleeve then think I can do this then I'm back to sleeve right now I'm looking at weight watchers as i need to wait 3 months after band removal before sleeve and ill see how i do if i need a tool i will get the sleeve:) but i am scared to death
