Hi, I had lap band surgery Jan. 05, I did very well lost about 30lbs, but then in Oct. 05 I had total hip replacement, so I was bed bound for a while plus did not do to much moving around after that for a while, I have now gained all my weight back and then some. I have tried and tried to go back to my doctor and get fluid added to my band but it seems like no matter what he puts in there I can still eat what ever I want, he has given me a Upper GI and it shows nothing wrong. I really want to lose this weight for myself and my hip, please help me anyone.

I had my lap band done may 2008 and have only lost 25 lbs. I am very disgusted because I have not lost more. I have 2.6cc. in my band and can not eat a lot at one time, but I do not keep that full feeling very long. In fact, there are many foods I can't eat and I don't understand why I am not losing faster.

Without knowing your medical history in regards to your surgery, it would be difficult to give you any sort of medical advice, (not that I would do that...rather mentoring)....I would seek consult with another physician, there's probably something else going on there.

Having your hip replaced is very hard on your body, BUT I know they have you up and walking within 12 or so hours with PT? correct and home soon after...If you are not moving and cont to be seditary then I would say time to get off the couch and MOVE that B O D Y that god gave with your your new hip...

Maybe get a fill, walk, write everything down. Back to basics that someone said in a earlier post. And of course get a checkup!

Sounds like 2.6 is not enough. You need to find your sweet spot. You should eat and not be hungry for 3-4 hours. Just my opinion.
