I am the one, that one that puts all the weight back on.
I was banded in march 2007 at 105kg Oh my god thats coming up to 8 yrs, where has the time gone??
I lost about 15kg That weight came off without really trying, then it stoped and I got caught up in the fill and more fill madness. I ended up unable to eat most foods and started on the sliders, not lot in quantity but they tended to be high cal. Then I went to America and Europe so had the fill out as at that stage I was worried about travel sickness vomiting slippage and blockages I couldn't find an insurance company that would cover the band and any complications in america. I had some fill put in and tried to juggle it so that I could have restriction but still eat salads and not get reflux/heart burn.
Hubby works at a hospital and in his job he comes across bandits that have slipped and eroded and worries about me, he would be happy if it was gone, I too worry about the long term effects of the band but am fearful of ballooning out if I didn't have the band and i am not keen to have further gastric surgery especially especially with the risks and my lack of ability to work with the band.
So 2015 I am 50yrs old, 110 kg developing some inflammation / arthritis in both my ankles and hands and desperately need to get back to a healthier and lighter me. So I guess I am asking for some support towards that goal.
