    Lower BMI success rates

    Thanks. Will check with the clinic. I seem to be a bit peckish so I was wondering! BTW I k ow it’s a bit off topic, but I’m feeling really freaked out by all the negative stories about bands and all the people having them removed. Any idea why all the bad press?
  2. Hi there Got my band put in yesterday, and of course I am obsessively scouring the Internet for everything band-associated! Just wondering what the reasons are for people saying that they are having their bands removed or replaced w a sleeve? Is it because there are issues with the band? Or are they are not losing the weight? What are the reasons that the band fails for some people? Has anyone had it removed after they have reached the goal weight? And if so have they kept it off? I am only hoping to lose 15 to 20 kg. So I really hope this works for me. TIA!

    Thanks. It’s getting a bit better. I’m actually quite hungry which surprises me! I’ve got 2 weeks of Optifast and chicken broth ahead of me so I may as well get used to it! Not it sure if the band is filled straight away though - or later?
  4. Hi there I’m about to have surgery for a band (I mean LITERALLY. I’m about to be wheeled off!) I’m EXTREMELY nervous about pain and potential complications Also I just wanted some inspiration - specifically would love to hear from those who had a BMI if around 30 ho much have you lost? And after how long? thanks
