Struggling!



Recommended Posts

Well, I've not been on here in a while but I need to see if anyone has been through this before. I just celebrated my 5th year with my lapband and my bananniversary was on Nov.8th 2018. On Nov.9th they Emptied my Band due to a Upper GI infection which cause my ban to be Inflamed causing me problems With even trying to drink Water. December 21st 2018 will be my 1st fill To which I will have to start all over again to find my green zone. It's been a while since I've had to deal with the hunger pains and I know some of it is head hunger , But nevertheless It's still Hunger I'm feeling. If you have been through this And would like to offer some encouragement, advise or tips, I would really appreciate it for I'm really struggling right now.

That's tough man... Sadly there really isn't a way to make the hunger pains go away, typically I'd say just pound the Water, but you said you were having issues with water. Personally, I'm so glad I had the band removed and revised to the bypass, I'd never go back or ever advise anyone to get the band. I hope the refill works for you.

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.
