Hello,My name is LaQuita and I am 'new' to this board. BUT I am not a new bander. I was banded in August of 08. I am 5'2 and weighed 241.  The first fill I was supposed to have, I couldn't have b/c the port had sliped and turned sideways. The Dr could  not access it for the fill. I had to have surgery again 6 weeks later  so the Dr could secure the port with more stitches. I had lost over 40+ pounds (down to 198) before I had my next set of problems with my band.I got to 7cc and started throwing up so the Dr took out 4 cc, waited a ferw months and we started back again.  I got up to 7cc again and this time I started throwing up and wouldn't stop. My Dr couldnt see me so me sent me to the ER to have a raiologist take it ALL out. We did this the week before Christmas.  I saw the Dr the first week of January and he said that the radiologist said my and had silpped from all the throwing up. So, now that this has happened twice I am having a band revision. This time he will use the Relaize band on me. He is taking the 'other' one out and putting this one in on March 1st 2010.  I have since gained back some of the weight I had lost, from being able to eat more than I should. I am now at 225.  I am an emotional eater, we have a special needs child at home (she is 20 years old) . I am her primary caregiver. I NEED encouragment especially since I feel that I have had so much trouble with my first band. Any encouragment that anyone can give  me WILL BE GREATLY appreciated.!! Thanks so muchLaQuitawww.caringbridge.org/visit/shea
