Hi all

Just to let you know I'm doing well after having my band removed on Wednesday.

The surgeon said I had a big slip which wasn't there 2 weeks ago which accounts for the 15lbs in a week weight drop.

I feel a bit sore and the gas pain in the shoulder is how I remembered it.LOL

I'll keep the bandsters rules as I only want to gain that 15lbs back.

I am so glad it went well for you Nicole! I was thinking of you today so I was happy to see your post. Did your surgeon say how long your stomach would take to heal and feel better?

Thanks Guys

I have 6 extra holes as they didn't use the same sites.

I can eat real food straight away and after 18mths I'm hungry. I'm trying to

make good choices and drink plenty of water.

Do you think you will have a new band put back in, eventually? I am curious... What did they say caused the slippage after 6 months? That seems like a long time after surgery to have a band slip. I am 14 months out and curious... I have thought about what I would do if I lost my band.. I am not sure I would have it replaced. Don't get me wrong - it is a wonderful tool but I just don't know that it would be worth it for me at this point. My patterns / eating habits have changed so dramatically over the last 2 years... I wonder if I would fall back into my old habits?

Good luck, Nicolek! I relaly hope you are doing well. You did phenomenally well with the band - so I am sure you will succeed in whatever you do without it. :)

Thanks again for all youer support.

I feel tons better already and have gained 10lbs but mostly because I was sooo dehydrated,

it took 5 tries to get an IV in, and then I still didn't pee for 16hrs after surgery.TMI sorry.

I know it will be a struggle but at least its trying to keep weight off NOT take it off.

IAMWORTHIT, I had my band for 19mths and I believe my body never fully recovered from being too tight for too long.

I got into a cycle of swelling causing vomiting causing swelling. My band only slipped in the last 2 weeks though as I had flouro

at the hospital and it was fine.

wow and wow

You have had a really miserable road these past several months. I am happy for you that you are alright, although the slip is very bizarre. Your story is a reminder for us to be aware of how tight is too tight!

Best of Luck to you!
