I was wondering is there was anyone that has had their lap band removed and a gastric bypass completed? My band seems to have a mind of its own and I am now awaiting approval from my insurance provider to replace it. If there is anyone that I can lean on for questions about life after the bypass and removal that would be great!

That's the procedure I'm having done on 9/11... lap band removal to gastric bypass. Mine hasn't failed, per se, but it did erode my esophagus and my GERD is awful!

I'm not a big Breakfast person... It's typically a cup of coffee (which I'll be trying to give up post surgery, much to my chagrin). I usually eat a yogurt or some nuts a couple of hours after I get to work. My band has always been tight in the morning, then looser as the day goes on.

Cateyez001,

I am set yo have mine removed and the Rousen Y (Spell) done on 14 AUG 2017. My Doctors stated this was the fastest they have ever seen a surgery approval, ever! Yeah for good insurance and good documentation! it took one week with one letter.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?

      Slowly going back to old habits, which is not good. How have others stayed the course and kept losing to achieve goal weight?
