I was banded in October of 2005, and I just recently had the same problem. I had thought I was too loose, and had Dr. Martinez fill my band, and I proceeded to go home and Pb as they call it with just about every meal. Of course there were the times I could eat anything. I thought I was going crazy, and NOT loosing any weight until Dr. Martinez sat me down and explained I was too tight. And loosened me up more than I was before I thought I was too loose! I was scared, but he said his goal was for me to eat three meals a day, and NO PBing! Well, I not only can eat now, BUT most importantly I have begun losing weight again! YEAH! So take heart, and call back for Dr. Martinez (sometimes he's easier to get than Dr. Ortiz). I'm sure they will call you back soon!
