Hi Bogiesmom!

I have read some of your post in regards to you having the bigger band and it seems that you are not happy with that. I just wanted to let you know that just about everyone that I know that has been banded in the US has the bigger band and are doing WONDERFUL! Before being banded at the OCC, I researched and had SEVERAL surgerons tell me that the bigger band is actually a better band due to the fact you have more room for adjustments and to work with on fills. I am NOT a doctor so the truth of this I DO NOT KNOW. I have a very close friend of mine that does have a larger band and she has lost about 20 more pounds than I have and was banded 2 months after me. I honestly dont think that the size of the band has anything to do with the amout of weight you will lose. You may require larger fills of course, but I think that someone with a smaller or larger band, a BIG fill or a SMALL fill, the Amount of fill in their band, I really dont think you can compare one to another. Everyone is SOOOO different, I think for alot of people it is their body chemistry, what food they are eat after being banded, if they are keeping their fills up (and sometimes I realy question the fill part, I have kept min up and still work my BUTT off). I guess what I am trying to say is that you will DO WONDERFUL with your bigger band. I sometimes get really scared with my little band being that I am at 3.30cc and still have a ways to go to my goal......

Keep a great attitude and you will do AWESOME!

You will ROCK your big ole band! ;)

Carrie!

Thank you very much Carrie and Debbie for you encouragement. It is just great to know that there are other banders out there that have success with the larger J&J band. Having specific example to compare myself to is really the only thing that is going to lift my spirits. People like Debbie are my inspiration right now. Hopefully I can be an inspiration to someone else very soon too.
