    I had my grastic sleeve on October 28 & this week I found out I'm 9weeks pregnant I'm just so confused to how nobody knew. I had blood work & I was told they check before proceeding with surgery according to my calculations I was 4 weeks pregnant during my surgery. Sent from my SM-G965U using BariatricPal mobile app

  5. My surgery was a complete success! & I've been doing good! But I just found out this week that I'm 9weeks pregnant & I'm just not understanding. I had blood work done & I guess nobody bothered to check my hcg levels? Cause if my Calculations is correct I was at least 4weeks pregnant when I had my surgery Sent from my SM-G965U using BariatricPal mobile app

    Hello everyone! I'm Christina I've had my lapband 8years. Haven't had any problems till after a year ago maybe two I've had two kids while having my band I never gained out of control while pregnant both times but recently I've been having alot of vomiting can't keep anything down not even fluids I've been to the emergency room, I've been having pain where my band is located and I'm looking to get it removed and possibly getting a gastric sleeve. Feeling a little discourage like I let myself down. Starting weight was over 300 got down to 189 before my kids now I'm at 220 after having two kids.

  10. After having a lapband for 8years about a mouth ago I had to have it removed due to slipping. Now that I don't have it i have try hard to keep my weight off in fact im scared to even weigh myself. So on this coming Tuesday I'm going back to my doctor and talk about getting the sleeve. I just have a question that I hope someone can answer. I already have two children and I most definitely want to have 1 more with me getting the sleeve would that be impossible? I would love to hear any successful or unsuccessful stories from people who have had the gastric sleeve and what I can expect 8 years is a long time and things have changed so much with weight loss surgery.
  11. After having my lapband for 8years not having any problems. End up today in the ER and by 6 was in the Operating Room getting it removed due to slipping.. has this happen to any1? But I'm home in pain but not to bad..

    My weight lost story

    Hello everyone my name is Christina I was apart of this app a few years back and left but Iam back. Just looking for new people that can related to me here is a little about me. I've had my lapband 8years now the first few years I loved it when I started this journey I was 300 but being 5"8 you couldn't tell. My only problem was I had alot of issue with my knees so at the time me & my parents decided weight loss surgery was a good idea. Fast forward I was down to 189lbs when I got a tummy tuck shortly after that I received well a month after that I was pregnant with my first child. I was lucky you couldn't even tell I was pregnant with her but since then I just had my second baby last year a boy! They share the same birth day just different year 11 20 15 &17 anyways. Since having my son I've been experiencing some pain where my lapband is located and the vomiting has gotten alot worst and I suffer from heartburn really bad. I made the decision today that I'm going to get my gastric band removed and possibly get a gastric sleeve. Looking to meet people in my area really don't have any1 to talk that's around my age I'm 27 besides my mom who had her gastric band for 10years and got it replaced with the gastric sleeve. Feeling excited to start this new chapter in my life alot has changed since me getting the surgery so I wanna know what's new and learn more and maybe help someone who is new to this. Look forward to speaking with you all and Happy New Year Sent from my SM-G955U using BariatricPal mobile app
