    Default Weight loss surgery chat

    I researched the surgeon befor having surgery and travelled 10hours to use his practice and paid a lot more than the local surgeon as I was told he was great. Since asking some questions on their Facebook page though I have had atleast 7pther patients of his contact me to say I'm not alone and that they have had the same problems :-(

    Wow that sounds awful!

    He must be doing something weird to have numerous patients not feeling the results. I mean, I can have more now than I could in the beginning but like, a sausage sizzle is about the most I could fit in... On a good day (for a meal, not the entire day lol). Or you know, I might struggle to get through a whole pear.

    Have you spoken to him about it not working for you?

    He is no longer the surgeon at his practice, I could easily have 2 sausage sizzles and not feel over full, I had toast for breakfast for the first time the other day in a long time and I had 4 pieces and still could have had more

    Ok the first thing I would do is 2 weeks on opti to re-shrink to what you had just after the op. It really works. Next I would contact a new surgeon and get assessed, to exactly what he has done. You can get your sleeve re-done. I would do that before you consider by pass. How many appointment after the op did you have? and what did he say about the small loss.

    I saw mine every few months for 2 years.

    I forgot your pregnant I had very lottle restriction when I was pregnant. The hormones cause your your muscles to relax and it seems to relax you stomach too. Don't stress until a few weeks after bub is born,

    Wow, just found this thread!!

    Had anyone here replaced their Lapland and gone for gastric sleeve surgery instead?

    If so, how did it go?

    My Lapband has been an epic fail for me but the thought of gastric sleeve surgery both scares me and gives me some hope.

    I had my Lapband done in 2008. The surgeon failed to mention anything about the gastric sleeve. I thought the only other option was gastric bypass, which scarred the sh!t out of me.

    Sleeve was my first port of call, and luckily it's been fabulous for me, but I do know a few who've had a band first and gone on to have a sleeve instead. I think loss may be slower if you're an ex-bander... that seems to be what these guys are telling me anyway. Their losses are still significant though, and so far they're singing the praises of the sleeve compared to the band... I think a lot of them found life fairly restrictive on the band. It's true that initially post-op sleeve you can't eat much, and you'll never be able to eat MUCH, but usually you can still eat a wide variety of foods... so it's not too difficult to feed yourself when you're somewhere other than home (you just have to get used to wasting food... which is really weird for me. I used to clear my plate - I would look at it and think, "I spend X amount on this! I'm not wasting it!" Now I'm always wasting food... or having the same meal for a few days due to leftovers. lol).
