I've had my lap band for 7 years. I've lost 150 pounds, and I'm very happy! About a month ago my band all of a sudden became irritated, doc says probably acid. I had a cc take out and in one month I have gained 15 pounds. I have an appointment Friday to have some put back in. I guess I just needed to vent, this food thing, addiction or whatever will never go away.

This fill " dance" we do is amusing... I'm currently almost empty for months after many years, and the number on the scale slowly moves up each month. Back for a fill. I'm going for

.5

Oh no a whole chimi? I have not had a chimi in 9 years. I did all of the sudden start gaining again so I got a fill (I was at 4 now 5.5) but now I keep salvaging and urp in my sleep. I can eat and drink and I stop eating at 5 pm go to bed at 10, what up with this?

Hey ladies, i'm at a disappointing place and looking for some guidance. I had my lap-band put in in '05. I had it for 10 years (lost 100 lbs the first two years and maintained it for the other 8). My stomach randomly slipped up through the band and i had to have it removed June '15. So, it's been two and a half years and i'm 47 lbs gained. I'm super disappointed in myself. I loved my band. It kept me from overeating, which i'm inclined to do on a regular basis. I don't want to get to a point where i actually qualify for bariatric surgery again (for insurance purposes) but I really would like my band put back on. I know the band is a thing of the past.
