11 years and 1 month - 4cc Band and Still Going Stron



Recommended Posts

I would love to hear from others who still have their 4cc Lap Bands! :)

I have had great success with my band. I have gained some weight back, but that is without my band being completely filled the whole time. I started at 290lbs and got down to 150lbs and was very happy!!! I currently am at 200lbs which my doctor tells me is more successful than most, but I just got a fill yesterday with the hope of getting back down.

I am a compulsive overeater and have issues with food!!! I need help on a daily basis with my will to eat. If I know I cannot eat without throwing up, this is my "helper". I cannot stand the thought of throwing up so I am VERY careful to not overeat.

I would love to hear from other "Old Timers" with the Realize 4cc band.

I have had my lapband 91/2 years and it no longer helps. My weight is going up and I don't seem to be able to get that under control.

I am scheduled for a revision in Jan.

I've been banded for several years and have zero problems with the band and there are no foods I cannot eat, so long as chew properly. I've lost more weight than expected, and it is still coming off slowly. I have no regrets having the band. If it comes out, there are other options that I will explore. But, the band gave me my life back and it works for me. I've learned how to eat and how to control the quality of what foods I choose to eat.
