Hi, I just wanted to introduce myself. I had my lap-band done in 2015 but I wasn’t really motivated and wasn’t consistent with eating well and filling it. I started at 354, didn’t lose for the first two years and then went down to 275, but now I am back where I started. I have gone through trauma and only recently when I did EMDR did I feel connected with my body like never before. I now feel like I have hit rock bottom. I don’t even know how much I weigh (my home scale goes up to 330), and recently I have begun to feel like I am losing mobility. It’s getting harder to walk (or am I only now aware since I stopped dissociating?) and I hate going to work because I feel like I am pooping out of my clothes. I cried tonight about my weight for the first time. I want my kids to have a mother. I am going to make an appointment first thing tomorrow and fill my band again.
EmilyNoLimits replied to Justin's topic in LAP-BAND Surgery ForumsSo I know what this is from. I have fasted before I ever got the band, and always had this pain when I broke my fast. However now that I have been on a liquid diet for a week (my longest fasts were 24 hours) I have never experienced such intense pain as now. it makes sense that a doctor who never fasted before wouldn’t have heard of this, but everyone in my religious community who fasts knows about this. When banded we are essentially fasting for much longer, hence the pain.
