... What happened to the girl with the 'helping hand from her gastric band'....
I had a baby girl in January and was going OK then about April, the band started to feel veerrrry tight. I got to the point where I could barely keep any solid food down, and often not even water, even though the band was completely empty. I made the decision to have the band removed in June, and had surgery on the 22nd. I weighed 84kgs on surgery day, giving me an overall loss of 42.6kgs.
6 months later and I have regained half of that despite efforts to eat well. My appetite is, as it always was pre-band, insatiable.
My kids and husband are well and despite my ever-increasing girth I am mostly quite happy.
Anyway. I just wanted to post a little update as I still feel guilty for deleting my journal, especially after receiving such wonderful support.
So there you go
