    Disappearing lapbanders

    Thank you! Means a lot. I have to say I was getting discouraged reading some other forums but coming here reassured me there is successful stories and it can work. Not afraid of doing the work and sticking too it. I know what caused my weight gain and it was my responsibility. Carbonation and calories. Period. I'm ready! Thanks to all of you, I appreciate this place to share.

    Disappearing lapbanders

    Newbie here, I'm scheduled for band over bypass on 1/19/18 and I am extremely excited to start my journey. I was very successful with Gastric Bypass for over 6 years kept off 179 lbs. I've gained 80 in the past 2 years and I was becoming increasingly disappointed in myself. I finally took charge and went on a revision consult. The results showed my stoma stretched not my pouch and the food was emptying too quickly into the small intestine. So I am an ideal candidate for the band over bypass. My surgeon was very encouraging stating this will give me the restriction again. I'm surprised at how many negative thoughts and views are on this particular surgery. It's discouraging to so many on their band journey. Thanks for this forum.
