17 yrs with the band



Recommended Posts

I have had the lap band for 17 years. I have not had any adjustments or dr visits in 8 years. I have a lot of phlegm issues. Is there any Fluid in my band after all these years? If yes, maybe getting some removed would help.
Is my original stomach shrank down to normal size now?

I need advice. I don’t really want to have it completely removed because I know me..... McDonald’s Big Mac here I come. Ahhhh I haven’t had one in 17 years!

I too gave up the Big Macs. Haven’t gone as long as you. I am super impressed.
might I as why you haven’t gone back in so long? Your fill should still be there.
I know as much as I tried.... sonic hotdog called and I answered. I have to admit.... omg it was the best hotdog I ever ate. It is really hard to do it with out the band or when it’s empty. Hungry is real

I haven’t needed a fill since 2012. I still have plenty of restriction, possibly too much with all my allergies.

Next week is 14 successful years and counting!!🌟. Nice to read about decade banders .
It is not always easy....even now after years with a 1cc band
And. I am grateful . I shudder to think that if I had not changed my life , I would be 325+ now.

I’ve had mine since 2005! Having a fill issue now (new dr added more Fluid but feel less restriction), but hoping to get that resolved soon...

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
