Good afternoon,

I had lap band surgery about 8 years ago. I did ok and lost weight but i never got to my goal. I had several providers leave the practice that I went to and gradually i stopped going all together. Needless to say i gained the weight back . I have decided to bite the bullet and start again. I have an appointment next Friday. I am scared and embarrassed but there is still some hope lingering. I was just wondering if anyone has been thru this ?

I've been scared and embarrassed before.

When you talk to your Doc, take responsibility and be honest about what went right and what went wrong.

You're not the first to be where you are, and things usually work out.

Good luck,

Tek

Certainly no need to be embarrassed, I have had my ups and down loosing and gaining weight with the lapband. Mine 4cc lap band was put in 13 Years ago.

As has been mentioned before be honest with your new doctor
