Still depressed about the loss of my band


3 posts in this topic

Had my band taken out on 1/17/17 it was one of the worst days of my life, it felt like my heart was being ripped out. I depended on my tool for over 3+years and lost 100lbs and the thought of regaining weight was a nightmare. I been trying since to stay on a low carb diet and eating healthy but it's just so hard. I do great all day but night time is the worst. Unfortunately I'm unable to get any other Wls due to the fact that I'm still under weight. But it's difficult living with 2 people in my house who still have Lapland's in. I get very depressed wishing I had that restriction again. Am I the only one feeling this way.

Will your surgeon advocate for you to get a revision? In my insurance policy, if the band fails I can get a revision (due to the fault of the equipment or malfunction, not failure to lose weight). It sounds like you've already lost the weight but if you need that restriction to keep it off I'd argue for a revision. Have you gained weight since you lost your band? Document it and tell your surgeon. It's his (and his office's) job to speak up for you!

I haven't gained all that much as of yet thank god Im trying so hard to keep up with eating healthy. But I just don't know how long it will last. I will definitely go back to my surgeon and ask him what my choices are. Thank you so much for you help.
