  4. Hi there, has anyone else gained weight with their band however managed to get back on track? I've had mine for about 6 years and not using it to my advantage, I've got into some bad habits but finding it really difficult to get motivated :/ I keep seeing high protein shakes advertised, do these help? I know where I'm going wrong and just need to sew my mouth up! Thanks in advance

    Band to sleeve

    Hi guys, has anyone had band removed and sleeve fitted? Mine band was done by Mr Dolan 7 years ago as a public patient, can I ask what the cheapest way to go about it is? I believe the wait list for public is very long ;/ I currently go to BMI Joondalup for adjustments, thanks in advance
