I wouldn't do that on purpose... i was just curious. And if a third surgery is what it takes, then so be it.

i can relate to that.... I kept the same thing in my band for a long time. Then out of the blue it got tight. I couldn't keep supper down and sometimes my lunch. I too had terrible reflux. So a few weeks ago i had had enough and went to my Dr. and had a 1cc un fill and i feel much better. I sometimes have trouble, but i know it's my fault for eating too fast and wrong items.

My friend and mentor Paula had the same thing... She recently had her band removed and sleeved. She said she feels so much better. I am happy for her.

Like i said about my SIL, GB worked for her ... For now anyway.

Are you thinking of revising to the sleeve ? Unfortunately there are no guarantees but there have been many who have done amazing with the sleeve after the band, I wish I had been one of them.

No, but Lord forbid if something happened it would be on my list.

If at first you don't succeed... Try try and try again. Lol

I have heard that some "large sleevers" have added a lap band for more restriction. It is a thought. I am so very sorry that you are going through all of this frustration! I would be pretty upset if I found out that my surgeon screwed up.

Good luck that is a tough one. If you are following the bible to a T and getting your exercise in then you should see results. The only thing I see is your cal intake is a little high, I am 5 months out and barely get 1000 cal a day and I am an active guy. Not a marathon runner but active workout every day and am an coach high school athletic coach (football and baseball) I walk about 3 miles a day not counting what I do on the elliptical at the gym which is about 2 miles at an 8:30 mile pace. Try to cut back to 1000 cal and cut out the starchy vegetables. Other than that sounds like you are doing everything right. Good Luck to you.

My current weight is 180, my BMI is 30.9, my highest weight ever was 260, I know after living with a very restrictive band for so long that my body got used to less calories, I'm willing to do my part, I still go to Crossfit 3x a week and try hard to eat right, but I know I need a tool and right now I don't have one. Iv had a continuous slow gain since I revised to sleeve, it's just a matter of time until I put it all back on if I don't do this.

I'm on my second band and am trying to get a revision to RNY approved. The reason I'm going with RNY is because I'm worried about exactly what you're posting about. I know my metabolism is completely messed up, between my PCOS and the band. Unfortunately, I'm going to be starting almost from scratch, because I've regained almost everything I lost with the band (I went from 225 to 135, and I'm back to 211 now).

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
