I had to have mine removed, but I remember how hard it was to get the fill "dialed in". And it could change day to day from being too full or barely enough. Ideally you should be able to drink Water, but feel full quickly on solid food. Good luck!

I tried to Get mine removed and they talked me out of it. The last time I filled it I could drink Water but didn't realize it was too tight until I tried to eat the next day And started throwing up no matter WHAT I ate🤯

Mine was eleven years old and even though I had no fill in mine and was still vomiting almost every time I ate. I could only get things like ice cream, pudding and yogurt through it. I went to a different surgeon (the one who did the band moved away about 5 years ago) and said it had to come out because eventually I wasn't even going to get Water through it. During the band removal and revision to a RNY they discovered that the band had slipped, and the slip caused a hiatal hernia. I had this done a bit over 4 months ago and weigh less than the lowest weight I ever got with the band. If your surgeon doesn't want to consider removing it, maybe you should consider finding another surgeon who will work with you before it gets worse.

I'm having the exact same problem at the moment 😢 In the mornings I can't even drink Water without being sick. My doctor won't see me because we are on lock down...this is the worst!

I currently have 3.5ccs in a 10cc band. I was up to 7ccs at one time but lost a little too much weight so we removed quite a bit and I’ve been sitting at the 3.5ccs for 2 yrs now. Minimal weight gain but mostly my own foolish eating habits. I’ve been banded for 12 yrs now with zero problems.
