Did a ten year follow up. Discovered leak between port and tube. GI Scope says Band in place and normal. Repair on 4/9 Monday.

Will be interesting as I get another tool back that will cut each meal in half. Got lazy on eating and drinking. I hope I know better this time. Key is to integrate this tool into meal size restrictions, intake macros and exercise plan.

Monday it begins again.

I had a leak in the tubing once as well. The surgery went well and I was good for a few years. Good luck on Monday. I'm sure all will go well.

Gi scope you mean endoscopy?? If so, apparently an erosion can be missed on endoscopy ( as I recently discovered)
Just heads up they don’t really know what’s going on 100% until they enter the abdominal cavity. Good luck.

In my Drs office we get year esophograms. We drink a barium dye looks like e yucky milk. We drink it and a X-rays type image is taken. They can see if you have a food pouch forming above the band that can cause a slip, it can show a hernia of the esophogus, a band slip, and I'm not sure if it can show possible band erosions.

a test like this showed I had a food pouch forming

Just wondering how you are doing with the reset.

Trying to keep up with Bandersters Banded in 2007

Now that I know how much fill I have it’s been much easier. Started with 1 cc two weeks ago, I get another 1 cc this week. Going slowly no rush.

The reset I tried when I had band unfilled and stood on liquids for 9 days and mushy for 5 . The food pouch had fixed its led up. I recently had band filled on the 7th to 2 cc but I felt I had no restriction and even tho I was on mushy mainly I hadn't lost any weight. On the 23 I filled my band .75 and I feel more full between meals and I haven't had any pain. But I plan on doing periodic band resets every 6-8weeks. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Today I ate solid food w/o pain so I think the m back in business. And I lost about 4 lbs😀121 here I come.... Maybe even 118😉
