Thanks for the add . As of today 1-19-20 ,I have never been so sick malnutrition and loosing quality of life .

I was banned 10-09 and for 9 yrs I lost 80-90 lbs ( also the most stressful yrs as an adult I might add ) ... fast forward 2 yrs ago I was gaining weight back rapidly yet it wasn’t from food Fluid retained in soft tissue 🤷🏻‍♀️
my doctor moved along to the modern sleeve no longer dealt with the band , passed me on to a p a with not any hands on band issues ... by the next two months I was sick and balloons up to 200 pounds At 4”11 ... and I COULD NOT FIND A DOC IN SOUTH JERSEY TO REMOVE

2 bands the band and realize NOT MANY with much knowledge of the realize ..

I go to a well known east coast heart hospital finally a nice understanding Dr. who agreed to remove the band and sleeve so the date comes 5-17-18 (paperwork similar ) no psych no vit shots ... the nutritionist and ins wait ..

I go in all is ok from what I remember the next day I am complaining of itching hands head n eyes “nurse perhaps pain meds “

me I have other issues and have n do take meds this is different .. over looked n discharged 2 days later the rash (still have 2-4x weekly) from inside out now hubby can see n watch spread .. a black bubble on lower abdomen appears go to doc he calls in augmenting infection (pill was a weeks of food to me ) by 2 more days another bubble yet bigger appears in the pain as of kidney stones to the hospital I go m r I and they can’t touch me immediate transfer to I c u at the Bariatric doc request .. 5 clots nicked liver spleen and rash Entire body inside out ... 7 wks and was told I had the HIT .. heparin induced blood clots

whatever is going on with you is incredibly rare. We almost never hear about this kind of thing. Sorry you're going through this.

I’m struggling to decipher what you have written. You had the band removed and thought you were sleeved but you weren’t ? Is that right? You are struggling to eat or drink. I find it hard to believe that a surgeon has diagnosed you with a twisted stomach and not fixed it. Normally a twisted stomach would be a medical emergency as the loss of blood flow would cause necrosis, infection and ultimately death.

And this has been going on since 2018? Please tell me what I’m missing.

        What state are you in????

      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
