sorry, can't do 3/17,

I am open 3/30, 4/6, 4/7

I can do lunch, but only if it is on the weekend, as I don't get much of a break at all during the workdays.

Hi all-

I haven't been here in a long time. So long, in act, i no longer have access to my old email addy and had to create a new user name. I'm DrewsLou and was banded by Dr K in May 2007.

My band slipped and was removed 2 weeks ago. Was curious if anyone else has had complications?

Not so far. What happened to cause your slip and did they empty your band to let it re-locate itself?

No clue what caused it. I haven't had a fill in years and there was zero Fluid in the band. It had down to the bottom of my stomach and was only open 2mm. the upper GI showed a hiatial hernia as well, but when my new doc took the band off, my stomach went back into place with no hernia.

I've been struggling for about a year with limited food choices and it has gotten progressively worse to the point of only liquids and vomiting almost daily. i was relieved and also shocked when the upper GI showed so many things wrong. :(

Wow. That's odd to imagine a band migrating so far? You gonna go it alone now or sleeve, new lapband?

Going it alone. I have learned so much about nutrition over the past 7 years that I am confident I can be successful on my own. I still have it in my head that I can only eat bandster portions and I haven't really been hungry yet...and its been two weeks. I feel better physically than I have in a very long time.

Let us know how that goes? I wonder the same thing now that I believe I know how this nutrition vs. weightloss/weightgain works.

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.

      Well yesterday I went bra shopping. Again. I could put pleats in the cups of the new ones I’d bought just three months ago so it was back to the department store. Foolishly I wore a dress so spent an hour in the fitting room wearing only my knickers as two fitters (yes it took two of them) ran back & forth with different bras to try. Those full length mirrors & fluorescent lights are super unflattering on the loose skin. Yikes! 
      Of course I’m between cup sizes & deflated at the top so only two of the most expensive brands around would fit me. At least a couple I bought were on sale.  Sigh. 
      So I’ve gone from a 18F to a 14F to now a 10FF/G.  At least I’m in two hook bras again and not the clumsy three & four hook ones. They are soooo much prettier (all lacy & fine mesh - ooh la la). 
      I really need to buy new knickers too - those old size 16 boy legs are like loose legged shorts now - but I’m just not sure what size. Plus after buying the new bras I can’t afford to buy knickers yet lol!
