Slippage happens. It has happen to me.
Actually I have been dealing
with this for months now.
I was lucky in that my band slippage did not affect my ability to
drink liquids or consume food.
It slipped up and it is now riding a top my stomach.
I tried to get information and help from my regular source but
this time it did not work. Insurance companies if you have one
are continually making it more and more difficult for us
to get or correct issues with a lap band.
I was summarily dismissed with a comment of
most surgeons are now converting them to
gastric bypass. So Back to square one.
I did something that I strongly urge everyone not to do on your own..
I made my liquid go away. No more details.
I do not want to give anyone any ideas and then I am to blame.
After my fluid/liquid/stuffing went away I was able to eat
with very little restriction and I killed all of my progress.
As of now being unable to correct/fix/change my situation
with my Realize® band
I have gone back to the diet that worked best for me.
Low Carb, Low Fat, Low Sodium.
With this I have noticed that the scale has begun to
move in my favor.
Gang., stuff happens and we must
do the best we can with what we have.
Let me tell you my acute back pain is an inspiration.
My low stamina is an inspiration.
I want a better life so here we go again.
I will continue to look for a solution to my problem but
thus far it seem the only one is going to Mexico
and having a corrective surgery done there. I will keep you posted.
Please understand that I am not suggesting or in any way saying
that you should do as I am or will do. This is me and this is my
options and choices you use yours when it comes to this.
In the mean time Let’s keep the enthusiasm up
and keep fighting the good fight.
