Starting Over 5 Years Post-Op



Recommended Posts

I had lapband surgery five years ago which worked great in finally being able to lose weight. I fell off the wagon about 2 years ago and gained all my weight back. Is there a way to "start over" again? Can I just start the post-op liquid diet originally required right after surgery to shrink my stomach and get the weight loss going again? I'm hoping it will shrink the "pouch" so the lapband will start working again by making me feel full with very little food.

I appreciate your input!

Unfortunately your story is pretty common among band patients. Would you consider sleeve or bypass surgery?

I remember reading an older post on this subject and the advice from the experienced members was to go back to the basics and start with the liquid diet. I would also consult the surgical team for nutrition and behavior or emotional counseling advice.

‘You did it once you can do it again. I’m thinking of you and I wish you best of luck.

I'm in the same boat. Gained most of my weight back. Did great for about 8 years. Then menopause hit and UGH! well that was that. Do you really think going back to start liquid diet..maybe Protein Drinks with some veggies and fruit ?
