I initally did very good with the band for the first few months. Then I noticed that I had no restriction. After several visits and discussions with my Lap band surgeon, I started gaining weight back. His office started using fluro for all fills about a year or so after I was banded. My first fill under fluro and my Dr. verified that my band had come undone! I was the first one out of the many, many patients he had done to have this happen. He was very nice about it and got me in for surgery ASAP to reconnect it. Now I am back on the right track and have good restriction. I think i have 9.0cc's in my band. Its the AP Large. Overall, i am Thrilled with my band! I could do better with my food choices, no doubt about it, but I am satisfied being a slow loser. Not losing as much in the winter, but doing more outdoor activities in the summer ( I love riding my bicycle!! ) Im not a gym person, outdoors for me please. My Dr, My Dr's office personnel and support staff are GREAT to work with. I'd highly recommend them to anyone.
