  1. Does the acid reflux get worse over time? I am starting to get empty stomach acid reflux now. Lap band 9 years. Gallbladder removed 3.5 years ago. Last year started having more issues with needing to hurl (sorry!) - checked everything out, no slippage, yes a hernia, some esophagus inflammation - doctor wanted to remove the lap bad because she does soooo many removals and hates them. I refused so she said to increase my protein. I have and hardly have the need to hurl any more. It does happen but not often. I could lose more weight but..I'm scared to do another surgery and worried they won't if I do have the band removed since I'm now 170 at 5'4 (I think that puts me in the over weight category not obese). I guess the push would be knowing if the acid reflux does get worse over time and I should remove it - not because my doctor hates it.
  2. Happy 41st Birthday paxie!

  4. 3 years has passed since you registered at LapBandTalk! Happy 3rd Anniversary paxie!

  5. Wow! two years already! You guys are doing so great!! I lost 65 and my doctor was thrilled. The military moved us and now I am in search of a doc who will see me. I had one practice turn me down because they didn't do the surgery. I gained 6 pounds back after getting a hairline fracture in my foot. but I am looking into shadow boxing until I get full functional again.
  6. Hugs. Jersey sorry to hear the news. :tongue2: JT - best wishes on a smooth recovery. things are going well - except with halloween chocolates surrounding me, lol..
  7. good lawd I cant remember if I posted this, lol such a bad memory - but I made it under the 200 mark - I made the nurse reweigh me twice because I couldn't believe it. I don't know how long it's been since I've seen that number. She was new and skinny and gave me a "your crazy lady" look but I didn't care! LOL I think I was in shock for days.
  8. sorry I'm late, I am so behind in emails, but JayTee - I'm proud of you. Sounds like you are doing great and I am glad you had a great doctor appt!!
  9. ((((hugs)))) butterfly and Jeserygirl, I'm sorry to hear of your loss. My condenselses and prayers go out to you.
  10. Thank you!! Thank you guys for the support - I am so fortunate to found this forum. We can do it!! Congrats Doodlebug!! Woo hoo!!
  11. WOOO HOOO!!!! AWESOME!!! Congrats on hitting under 200!!!! Not there yet - I have 7 pounds to go, but for right now I'm thrilled to be where I'm at. I can't remember the last time I was this close to onederland. :biggrin:
  12. Hey guys checking in, had some military stuff that kept me a way for a bit. Forgive me but I cant remember who told me that ppl start to take notice weight loss in us after we lost 40 pounds - were right. :biggrin: Thanks for that. Still plugging away here - I need to be more consistant with exercise but life has been caotic lately and hoping it will turn more normal soon so I can get back into a routine. I noticed from time to time I eat way too fast still. When Im conscense of it - the band works as a tool well. Keep going guys - we're so worth having better health!
  13. Thanks JayTee, you're the best.
  14. LMAO love the bunny pics!!!! Hey guys sorry havent posted in a while - was away visiting family. Frustrating - I've seen both sides of the family and no one has noticed anything. I know it's just 32 pounds, but heck I thought maybe something. Discouraging to think Im so overweight that 32 isnt noticeable. I know, not a good thought to think. Gonna keep plugging away, would of never gotten to lose this amount if it wasnt for the band. This is better than nothing.
