Hi I am new here but not new to WLS, I had a 10cm lapband in 2005 weighing 147.7 kilos and only lost around 30 kilos at the most and held steady at 130 kilos. Had 2 kids and then band needed removal in early 2014 due to complications that saw me unable to keep food down.
After putting on 20 kilos after removal I had a 2nd lapband 14cm's put in at 150 kilos, lost 15 kilos (including 7 on optifast before surgery). Have tried different levels of fills and end up vomiting on fills or hungry. Saw surgeon for fill on Friday the 8th April and we chatted about the option of band removal and revision to sleeve. Hence why I am here researching and chatting :-)
I have sleep aponea, asthma, depression, hip bursitis and high risk for diabetes as my mum is a diabetic and I had 2 pregnancies with gestational diabeties. So I need to lose weight for my health
