Hi. I got my band placed in 2012. I had great success with it. I lost about 125lbs. At the beginning of 2017, I began getting very sick and unable to tolerate anything by mouth and would get terrible cramping in the left side of my abdomen. After a year and a half of playing the what could this be option, I finally got my primary Dr to order a GI consult and get an upper GI scope. The scope in fact found that my band had eroded into my stomach! I went to my bariatric surgeon and he removed it in Sept of 2018. Since that time I have gained back all of my weight plus much more. My insurance is refusing to pay for another surgery. I am having so many more co-morbitities now then before I had the band placed. Plus I am having more pain in the left side of my abdomen where my band was. Plus its so weird it feels like a baby is moving in that same area, but I am not pregnant. I am looking to find somewhere to get the gastric sleeve done for a decent self pay price. If anyone knows of anywhere I would greatly appreciate the info. Thanks!!!

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
