    Disappearing lapbanders

    G'day, I'm a newbie to the forum. Had my lapband a while ago but am 'rebooting' it before I consider revision surgery. Had some fill put in and am seriously sticking to the rules and have lost 7.5 kgs in a month so am pretty happy with that. Nice to meet you all (I'm Aussie but live in Ireland)

    Size of Metformin pill

    Hi guys, I'm new here, but an old bandster (with a long and unproductive story that I won't go into here). Anyhoo, I'm 'rebooting' my lapband so to speak, and got a fill up to 9ml. I am now having to be pretty careful about what I eat and I am struggling with the size of the Metformin pill. It's not the extended-release version just the regular one which I have to take twice a day. The package says don't chew but I am chewing - do other people have to do that too or can they swallow the Metformin whole despite the lapband? Just curious Rachel
