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.
