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

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months
