  1. Hi all i need help deciding what to do, i have the band in for just a little over 2 years, first couple of months it was brilliant i lost 15kg but weight loss stop and its been 2 years and still no weight loss im so frustrated and upset, so now im looking into going from band to sleeve i just need some input from people who have done it, did u lose weight? Because i was told my my doctor that people who have done the band and didnt get good results arent as successful with the sleeve and ill probably wont get good results from that either, so can someone please shed some light and tell me what happened and did you lose weight and do you recommend it, thanks

    Hi all, went in for my first fill on Monday and same as Kath I felt nothing, I guess we've been worried for nothing, I was told to go back to liquid and soft food for 36 hours, im not sure about everyone else who's had a fill but I have found it made no difference, im still as hungry and still no restriction, and the worse part is I cant see my doctor again till the beginning of February, I only had 1ml put in, I asked for more but was told that for the first fill they cant put to much, im not too happy with the slow process of it all and especially not happy that I have to wait so long to see my doctor, how is everything one else going with the fill? Getting any restrictions?

    Hi all, I was banded on the 15 Nov, im going in for my first fill this afternoon, im noy sure what to expect im hoping after today I will get some restriction because at the moment I can eat normal and I dont feel I have a band at all, and im also hoping I can find out why I feel nauseous all the time especially in the mornings, its like morning sickness all over again (and no im not pregnant), I also lost a bit in theffirst couple of weeks after my surgery and since then nothing at all, its been nearly 2 weeks I haven't seen a change on the scales so hopefully after today things can get moving.
