Restarting my Lapband from 4 years ago
Posted 03 July 2011 - 08:43 PM
About four and a half years ago, I had lapband surgery. I had it two weeks before Christmas and at the very same time that I was setting up a new business. My life was chaos and I didn't recognise that the lapband would make such a big change in my life. I couldn't handle a new business and the lapband. I spent twelve months throwing up and living on quiche and ice cream, just so I could eat. I got the liquid taken out of my band. I was devastated and have not had the mental capacity to try it over again.
Now, however, my life is different. I do not own a stressful business any more and I have chosen to give the lapband another shot. Since it was first installed, I have gained another ten kilos. I am getting a fill this week and will be more dedicated to looking after myself and making sure the two of us get along better.
Is there anyone out there who has been through similar circumstances? I have spent four years feeling like a total failure when I failed my last resort (the lapband). It is only right now that I have climbed over my mental block and felt up to the challenge of getting it started again. I have found an excellent doctor for support. Initially I chose to get the surgery done in another city so nobody would recognise me....what a fool I was! It was three hours away so I didn't even get any after surgery support.
So here goes......

There are a few people in the forum that are coming back or giving their band a second chance.
Hope all goes well with your adjustment!!

The good thing about this forum is that people are so full of knowledge and support, I know I would have failed with my band if it hadnt been for this site... whether it was information, support or a good kick up the bum, I found it here
Keep in touch and let us know how you are going
Good luck with the fill, and the new beginning
