Happy lapbanders only!



Recommended Posts

Please... I just want one thread that has good things to say about lapbands...

There are many horror stories on other posts. Just not here please.

I’m happy 11 years later.... lost about 90 lbs. kept off 70...

I need my tool. Emptied, I put on 25 and didn’t change too many habits.

I’m back with fills and life goes merrily along!!

I love my band I have been able to keep my weight off by being diligent and exercise. I bike a lot and during the winter do a lot of spin. No complications at all, keep it pretty tight but that is what I need to do to stay in control. A couple of times my weight started to creep up but I put the brakes on and go back to plan. Retiring in May bought a new road bike for my retirement and do a lot of gardening. Life is GREAT!

Well. Not too many happy banders here.

(After 11 years I was Unfilled and have recently had 2 small fills). It is still working!! Which means I am trying..

And why does food taste better at 10 at night?

This underfill works for me most often.

Best to all that try.

I am still a Happy Lap-bander. I rarely talk about online anymore. I was unfilled in March and it has been a slow process of small fills to get restriction back. I am thinking the next fill will get me back where I want to be. I will have some time this weekend and want to check out the forums to refresh my mind on the basics as I have put back on a few pounds while unfilled. Where do the lapbanders post most?

Some post here. But it is a bit sluggish at times.
Sadly, many not -happy banders around as well for many reasons.
Not sure of other sites I believe Facebook has some groups.
. It is a very special dance I must follow to not irritate my band. I drink Protein Shakes and exercise....and
Try!! I fail also!
Hoping You will remember the high Protein from the last round.
Best of luck!

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
