    glad you have had it sorted, I am back on the weight loss track, after having infection cleared out and band replaced, back loving my band
  2. i wish we would talk, I going next monday to see Anna, post op check up and review.
  3. I go to cbs, I see Wendy and go to the northern clinic. I had port issues since January and had my port replaced and got a massive infection, was having to go to cbs 3 times a week for 4 weeks. Had my port replace and infection cleaned up 2 weeks ago and the support from cbs has been amazing. Can not fault the avenue either after I had a three day stay there due to my band being tight post op and u well from the infection,

    hi everyone, omg I can not believe I have had my band for a year, well I have some news, I was going great guns at losing weight and got to below 139kg, that day was amazing lots of smiles at clinic and we decide I would get below 120kg this year. Early in the new year I become hungry and put on weight, I went to clinic as i have done fortnightly for the last 12 months, my doctors said he would fill me up thinking I had 6.1mls in my band. Again I was hungry, my doctor agree to check how many mls was in my band and I only had 3mls in my band. I was advise to book in to see my surgeon, thinking it would be a few week but I got in the next day, I lose a few mls overnight but then my surgeon decide that I needed my port replaced, she wanted the port check one last time a week later and then booked me in for a port replacement, Surgury went great till i got up and keep vomiting. I had to have fluid taken out of my band which in turn has my a pocket of fluid. I had to have the fluid drain three times in the past week. A week later I went for my routine check up and wanted a fill, after 40 minutes of trying to found my port my doctor could not found my port, he recommend that a have a fill via ultrasound but thought my port had flipped. Again I was lucky to see my surgeon the next day. She try for over 30 minutes but she stop once she pulled blood out of my band, so on tuesday my band is being replaced and and moved to the other side of my body to try and heal the infection and so I will have a working band again. love this group. Most people know i have the band but I just don't talk about my band.

    I had to pay for the seminar and 1:1 visit. I go to CBS and had to call her, I think she amazing. Yes she talks down but once she knows you can talk on a high level she will, she worked out I could carb count and know about different foods. I now mail her and see her every 12 weeks. I see her at williamtown too
