1year in and really frustrated


Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I am glad first to find a forum such as this one, because i kind of feel alone sometimes. I am a year into my surgery and I feel hungry a lot and i have only lost about 30lbs. Anyone ever experience this? Have any suggesstions for getting back on track. I have been avoiding my doctor because my last visit i thought he was a bit insensitive. What am i doing wrong. I hear fiber pills mentioned a lot... what kind??

Were u banded at the OCC? Sounds like u need a fill - but u didnt give much info so its hard to say! I would say something is definately up though - if you were banded at the OCC is there anyway you can go back for a fill?

No, I guess i didn't realize that this was a site for the OCC. I was banded at a clinic in MD.

Have you had any fills? How big is your band? If you'd like some advice, then we need more information to give you any assistance...the people on this site are pretty knowledgable. And anyone is welcome, but yes, most of us went to the OCC in T.J. for our surgery.

:angry: April will be a year for me too. My weight loss has not been good either. I am currently at a total weight loss of 40 pounds. That just sucks! I have had several fills and now I have had 2 unfills.(I will correct my signature info at a later time). So now I am back to just a band, just like the day I had surgery. wow that has been a really expensive 40 pounds. I can eat any and everything and my mental attitude toward all this is terrible. I have begun cardio and weights and have been going for 3 weeks now. I have shaped up a bit, but the scales are a joke. So I am not happy to say the least with my band. I have a great fill dr., but I am not having the results I anticipated. Can you imagine, not once, but twice an unfill. :-? He can not give me an answer on this either.

Sorry so sappy ya'll,

:(
