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

i might not be here 2- days I slept Endo by hospital g I doc confirms NO BAND OR SLEEVE ???

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.

      My life is WONDERFUL
      I am 10 weeks post op today. I have lost 43 pounds!
      I walk 3-5 miles daily and I have picked up Hoola Hooping! I am on a dang roll and I love it.
      Sorry I have been absent on here but I really have made it a point to take care of ME. My exercise time is precious so I have to get it in before working or anything else.
      I wish there was MORE than WORDS to express to you just how wonderful I feel!
      I even created a new blog post today! https://sabrinagoddess.com/create-a-life-that-you-love

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey
