I had my surgery last year in October. So, over 9 months ago. I have done great losing approximately 50 lbs. I had good restriction, etc. However, as soon as it got hot in the summer the restriction vanished. I have had two fills in the last two weeks, mind you, the only fills I have had since my surgery in October. Neither which have helped. I am going in again on Monday to get another fill. I am just wondering if anyone has experienced anything similar? I am positive it is the heat. I now can eat anything and I miss the restriction. I know it is a matter of tweaking and finding my green zone, but want to get it back desperately and will strive to do so. I have at least another 50 lbs. to go and I will not stop until I achieve my goal, but just curious if anyone has had the same pitfall? Advice? Suggestions? Support? lol Thanks!

Increase the exercise to jump start losing again. Longer walks.

Under normal circumstances most people can take 4 to 6 fills before they start feeling the full restriction u say at the minute you have only had 2 fills so u probably do need a couple more. You have probably lost some of the visceral fat around your tummy now and the band is looser than it started off, summer may have a slight impact on the restrictions levels but not to that extent, its more likely to do with your loss of internal fat .. keep getting your fills now till hit your gren zone and u will feel ok about the band again :) good luck !

I'm surprised you are getting multiple fills so quickly. It can take up to 2 weeks for a fill to take effect so I'm not sure you even know if your last fill is working yet. FYI I did not get restriction until 10.6 cc's.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
