Ok Folks I need to hear from anyone with info regarding. Having Lap band after gastric-bypass surgery. I weighed 560lbs in 2001 had gastric lost 300lbs! YAY! that was 11 years ago I'm up 90 lbs in the last year and once again back to how i felt pre-surgery.. Never full and over eating as usual. for the past 2 years I have tried Weight watchers, Jenny Craig, No Carbs, Low Carbs, everything that didn't work before. Gastric bypass. I have an HMO who were wonderful and approved my surgery 11 years ago. However now, no dice! They consider my gastric-bypass a success. I agree but am now in reverse. They have done x-rays and test and say my stomach is still small. I say, No way!!!! I asked about lap band and they said it is not FDA approved for people who have had gastric. i'm feeling so defeated and exhausted and don't want to keep gaining yet, that's my life story. I saw Carne Wilson recently on TV she had Lap band and I know she had gastric she was the reason I had it back in 2001. Hope someone can help point me in the right direction.
PS I've never blogged before so I have no idea if this is the appropriate place for all these questions.
