Mindy Posted July 15, 2004 Report Share Posted July 15, 2004 I have to say that i am feeling frustrated because I have not enoyed the success that others have. I was banded a year ago by Dr. Ortiz It was easy,uneventful. Since then I have had 4 fills am at 2.9cc . I get decent resriction for a few weeks, then it seems to disapear. I have just made my apt . for my 5th fill.All have been done in the states under flouroscope. I dont know what is wrong. After a few weeks I start to feel hungry and eat too much especially at night when the band is open. I know I need to have more self control-but if I had it I wouldnt have needed the band to begin with.I am concerned that I stretched my pouch. I really had hoped the band would deal with the hunger issue better, I have lost about 22 pds over the last year,but need to lose another 50. Any advice. thanks, Mindy Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
