I had the gastric balloon procedure done on , 7/12/2018 but I haven't really lost more than 5 pounds. I'm sorta disappointed, but at the same time feel a bit lost. I was given a generic booklet to follow, but obviously it hasn't been working too well for me. I had the initial 3 days of nausea, but since then I honestly haven't even needed the medications they gave me. My stomach is back to normal. Which is good and bad. Good, because I can eat pretty much anything without discomfort. Bad because I can pretty much eat anything in smaller quantities without discomfort. I am working on getting an exercise routine down which is my biggest hurdle. I'm thinking i'm going to go back to Protein Drinks until I can figure out my food. Anyone else having a hard time loosing weight? What did you do to get on track?

I unfortunately had the balloon in 2016. I lost a total of 20 pounds mostly in the beginning. After I had it removed I immediately gained back the 20 pounds. After it is removed you have a big void in your stomach which was immediately replaced with over eating. To this day I am a bit embarrassed that I spent so much money on a procedure that did not work. I am now on the keto diet and have lost nearly as much as I did with the balloon. Best of luck to you.
