Unfill & rapid weight gain



Recommended Posts

I had a band fitted 5 years ago and was happy with the weight loss. For the last year I developed severe reflux , night cough, sliming. Etc. Surgeon reduced my fill by half and the symptoms disappeared immediately. BUT I’ve also gained a ton of weight in 2 months , feel no restriction and get severe bloating. Anyone else have this problem . Going to try a little fill ( after the holidays !!🤪)

Are you eating more quantity per meal or eating different foods, eating more frequently now? What's behind the gain?

HI, My name is Robyn. I had lap band surgery over 10 years ago. In my later 40's I also had really bad acid refux and had an unfill. I just can't get a fill again. I still have acid refux at times but Nothing like I had. I take meds for it and it seems to be ok. I know this is a side affect from the surgery. After I wen't through menopause my weight started creeping up. I am now over 200 lbs again and it makes me very sad. I have no idea how to start a NEW. I know I need to start some where but just not sure what to do. Our RD at the office is horrible she knows nothing she is no help.

Any suggestions wold be great...

Thanks

All I can say is that I had my fill reduced from 8 to 4 and the acid stopped immediately . Surgeon said if that didn’t work he’d check to see if band had slipped as that can cause reflux
