I’m a 2009 bandit but not for much longer. My band is no longer helping, I have regained quite a lot of weight and there is a concern about the probable damage that the band has done so I am revising to an RNY in Jan

2008 bandsters out there!? Feb 2008 and still going!!!
2007, but I'd like to get it removed. Have gained all weight back and with my stomach virus flu scare and not being able to vomit, I'm terrified of it!

Glad to see other long term banders here. Many cannot keep their band for all kinds of reasons .
I’m so happy to say I just passed my 12 year mark...🌟🇮🇹
2006 included a life changing procedure lap band placement in Fresno
Yes... a few ups and downs. But still close to my high school weight.
(And please don’t think it has been smooth.. I make many mistakes)

Very THANKFUL🎄🎅🏼🎅🏼

April 2006 for me. Haven’t been in contact with my surgeon in a few years, need to make an appointment as I have stalled and gaining. I am having issues a lot lately with food getting stuck and vomiting. Everything seems to get stuck and I am also having discomfort in my esophagus. I may need to have a removal.

2009 here. Things are going well. Haven’t seen my surgeon for years. He switched to a different specialty. My starting weight was 232 am currently 143. I still feel as I have to work to stay at this weight as sweets and junk food are so easy to eat.

Bottom pic (right) is right after surgery and top is current.

11 years in May for me! I keep my band a little loose due to some reflux....unfortunately that means I can eat anything. Been trying to do ww but then I thought ....hey just use this toool that you have. It’s been so long since I’ve eaten like a bandster I’m having to really think about it.
Sw 314
Lowest 170
Current 207
Good to hear from y’all!

I’m currently trying to do ww as well. I was doing low carb/keto for awhile and lost a bunch of weight. Trying to maintain it and lose a bit more with ww though and eat more like a normal person. 🙂
