I have struggled with my weight since I was a child. I had the band done in September of 2006, but had quite a few problems. After losing 60 pounds, I gave up because the band was always too tight and would cause my throat to swell when it hadn't developed a leak. I gained back all the weight. Then, I found a new doctor who has been fantastic. I have lost 75 pounds so far and want to keep going!
