    Has anyone had lapband erosion?

    Thank you very much for your responses... Thanks Ozchick, I'm glad to hear that someone else has most (and you all) of their band fill....at 9ml in a 10ml band I could still eat everything and don't get the vomits.....had a subway 6 inch before I went in to see the Dr....I will let you know when I go back...but so far so good....feeling restriction now but freaked out when he mentioned erosion....I will get him to check that at my next appt. Many thanks for your replies

    Has anyone had lapband erosion?

  4. Hi, I have been banded 2 years and have lost 10kgs...I have 9ml in a 10 band...got another .2ml put in today and the Dr said that band erosion is common if the band is too tight? Had anyone had band erosion? What he said has scared me as I would freak out if my band is eroding into my vital organs? Has anyone experienced this and what was the outcome? Many thanks F

    Hi Helen, I'm not at all worried about my gain of 10kg's, this is a journey for me and I feel great and haven't overeaten once since being banded and to me that is an achievement. I will lose the weight but am not expecting it to happen overnight. The thing I have been more worried about is my hair loss, lots of it!!!! Like I said I can eat anything but I do stick to a healthy diet except for wholemeal bread which I would like to cut out but still having sandwiches for lunch and love subway once a week. You will get there, it just takes time. Good luck.

    Forum For Failures

    Hi everyone, I have been banded 4 months and no restriction....never had a vomit or anything stuck....can eat anything, bread, meat etc. I'm not at all worried, feel great...have put on 10 kilos, but hopefully next fill I will have some restriction. Remember it is still early days and we are all different, one lady might lose 25 kilos in 3 months and another in 3 years. Hang in there, the band has been great for me because I really know that I am eating less and my choices are better in nutritious foods.l Good luck and I think its great that you have posted how you felt, a problem shared is a problem halved. Be positive and you are not a failure,not at all. We all need help and we all fall off the wagon. Ooops, forgot to say I have had 3 fills.

    Thanks for the reply XM....I will bring my appointment forward....Funnily enough I don't eat icecream at all, I love chocolate and yesterday much to my horror and I'm going to admit this to everyone I ate a packet of mars bars (the small ones) and 4 blueberry muffins.....screeeeeeaaaam...lol I can't believe it....I had such a bingy day yesterday (period is due but no excuse). I feel no restriction at all and even when he put the 5 ml I didn't feel any....weird! Onward and upward...going to be good today. Keep up the great work everyone.....just having a bad week here. xx

    Oh!!!!! How long are you on liquids for???? My surgeon said eat what you can...just the portion size will be smaller....Are we supposed to go back to liquids (for how long) and then mushies (for how long)...my surgeon was super busy today -maybe he forgot to tell me. Cheers for the info. Fatima gonna be fat no more
