    sternum pain

    Hi all, I'm a little bit distressed as I woke up this morning with pain (achy)in between my beasts down to below my bra. It seems more painful when I take a deep breath. Has anyone experienced anything like this.. I live a fair distance to my surgeon so I dont want to travel all that way if it's something normal.. thanks

    Dilation problem

    Hi I have a similar feeling in my throat but was told it's caused by reflux.. try anti acids for a couple of days and see if the feeling goes..

    I had check up appt today. Lost 4 kg since December which I'm happy about. Thought for sure I'd put on weight.. only think now is I think last fill made the band too tight.. I'm having symptoms of acid reflux and pressure and pain when having the tinest amount of food.. does this sound like a tight band?? Or a band slip??

    Going Backwards

    Thanks everyone for the responses.. I am over due for a fill. I haven't been back because I feel so disheartened in my progress and stupidly don't want to feel like a failure by not looaing weight.. I have lost good amount don't get me wrong I'm happy with what I've lost so fair but dont understand why with my hard work the kgs aren't falling off. I guess that's where the nemesis potato chips came in.. I domt eat a lot of protein as I'm a vegetarian... I just have to keep pushing on and find the motivation and get onto the healthy eating again..

    Going Backwards

    Hi all.. I need some help as I feel I'm sabotaging myself.. I had my band put in just over 6 months ago and have lost about 12 kg with 15 to go . But I've not lost anything in the last 3 months or so.. and this has caused me to loose motivation and starting eating crap ie chips.. I don't believe I've put on weight but I'm not loosing anything either.. I'm begining to get very disheartened .. does this happen to others?? What can people suggest..
  6. Hi i was banded 15 July 2013 and have only lost 8 kgs. ive been excersicing 3-4 times a week with a trainer, eating small amounts etc. but just dont seem to be loosing weight. I know people say a lose is a lose but im getting very frustrated by the lack of progress im making..
