Band Slippage.

new lap band picOK. Reality time Gang.

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.

The Meds In Our Days.


I know very well that I have to take certain meds

every single day. At very specific times.

 I know that I need them.

But What to do when for whatever reason we

are unable to take them. What to do when

the pain hits and you are unable to function.

If you are depressed or dealing with fibro

with out your meds you might as well

just sit and breath as there is not much else

you can do. I KNOW.

There are many reason why we at times are

unable to take our meds as prescribed and

we must avoid that by any means but when it

happens try to have a plan B even if it is just

to howl at the moon in a therapeutic fashion.

or fantasize about inflicting the same pain

on some one who has not kept their promises.

Hope you never go through putting up with pain

because of lack of meds… It Sucks

If you use lyrica or Cymbalta like I do you know

how severe the withdrawals are if you do not

follow the prescribed times.

I guess I am just venting and letting my own

body know that we still have more battles to

fight in the future. All in all pains and all

I am grateful to be alive today.

I wish you all a great one today and always.
