I got surgery May 4, 2009. I'm very happy so far!! HI Update March 26,2012 I had to have sug
rery again my band was tilted and he had to fix a hernia. I'm feeling pretty good and glad I got to keep my band. I lost 130 total. went from 258 to 133.. I did gain 20 back when my band was unfilled waiting on surgery, all my own fault took advantage of ther totally empty band, and ate stuff I stayed away from., I did realixze thru this I need the band, old habits ate justing waiting there.. I hit my goal in 18 months and kept it off for over a year. So, now i have to lose about 15 pounds. I decided to raise my goal too. I was looking too thin, I'm 5'7. So, that is my story. I love my band!!!
UPDATE 10/27/15
I will have a revision from band to bypass on Nov 4, 2015. my band has a leak and decide to switch instead of replacing the band.  I gained about 50 pounds back since my leak back iin June.  I hope to get this weight off soon,,,
