  1. This is a great thread ... its asking things I have been wondering lately. I am 1 year post op - I havent lost much weight at all but i havent put any back on either, I know (Thx Carmen) that I should have gone in for fills and revision more often. When I got a letter stating I need the one year check up I paniced ... then when I called they said oh its routine, but from 2 years on you need blood tests etc I started thinking ... why? WHat are they looking for? what are the risk factors post 2 years? How long will this last? Will it ever work? (or will I ever have the ability to make it work) so thanks for the thread.

    Why are thin people not fat?

    I just watched this and it was amazing - really enjoyed it but now I am terrified my band will fail ... I was a thin kid but according to this the body now thinks its much bigger and 'remembers' that. I have a question ... would liposuction remove some of the body's fat cells? In part of that they said once fat cells are formed you have them forever .. well liposuction takes them away doesnt it? I have never thought aboiut getting Lipo but this makes sense to me .....

    Lost my oomph

    OK I wont be having oopmpa loompas for breakie for a while ... had another fill yesterday, only 1/4 ml but after you have a half full band that is mathematically a fair bit. I can feel it, I am still feeling like crap but it was easy to have a few cups of slim soup yesterday and feel full, this morning I struggled with my one very sloppy weetbix fibre and I have only had a latter since. Heres hoping this will help. My doc pointed out that when we have an adjustment it can irritate the area and it needs to be looked after ... thats why its liquids the rest of the day and mushies the next ... I dont always follow the rules but I can feel it this time, I need to be careful and I have been thinking it may be important down the track to make sure nothing goes wrong.

    Stomach really sore..

    Hi a certain amount of pain would be expected but if its really bad and frequent it wouldnt hurt to see your GP or the clinic if you can getin - is there heat around the area? This would indicate an infection - I would err on the side of caution and have it looked at - good luck, let us know how it goes

    KRISTY!!!!!! Hello you are doing so bloody well with yoru weight loss you have left me behind for miles. As for the gaffa tape boobs I cant see why not ... my hubby taped daughter into a dress for melbourne Cup once ... she looked amazing (yes at 20something still has perky ones anyway ... but the gaffa worked well as a bra/support) When you get those holidays I expect a long long report about how its all going for you and your beautiful tribe Hugs
