- HEALTH TRACKER
As far as I understood it - she had the band since her stoma was open - and her pouch was not really a pouch but more like a very long tube-like stomach.
I do agree with you re revision - if I need revision - I most likely would opt for DS... but maybe that was not available to her. Revision to DS is much more complicated and not many docs do it. Also the recovery is much longer, and from what I saw - she wanted to be able to recover fast and even be able to perform 3-4 weeks post op. (that did not happen)
And who knows - maybe she will do well this time? I do doubt that - seeing that her DH already teased her with toast with jelly... and the only reason she did not have what he had that she was on liquid only... With her hate to exercise, and DH like that, and small children, I doubt she will be full term success..She probably may lose some weight and unless she changes how she sees food and exercise - she will be back to where she is now... or close...

AnyTHING anyONE needs/needs to do to get/stay HEALTHY has MY support-be they a "celebrity" or not.
Am I a bit jealous of Carnie's money, and think "If I had her $$, I could stay at goal and not have to WORK at it"?.. SURE I think that sometimes..but obviously it's not true..Maybe I think she "owes me something", since she was my hero, all those years ago, when she started me on the road to WLS..
We all have our struggles. I just don't air my crap for all the world to see
