Hi Paula, just wanted to confirm your comments on schlerotherapy. I had RNY in 2001 (open) and lost 165 lbs., have now gained back some 60 pounds. I've now had two schlerotherapy treatments. I notice some improvement in restriction about a week after each treatment, then it seems like it's pretty much back to staying hungry and wanting to nibble or "graze" all the time. I will say that I have lost some 16 pounds over the past 3 1/2 months, but I think this is more because of my trying to get "back on track" with proper eating habits, etc. than from any WL due to the schlerotherapy. Doc. says the initial restriction may be just from irritation and swelling following the injections. I am now convinced my best option for permanent revision will be to add the lap band, which my Doc has mentioned.
My problem is that on my next appointment in one week, I'm sure my doc is gonna want to schedule me for another scherotherapy treatment to give this option a chance. I, however, would rather put my resources into a permanent, or at least a more long term, solution. I don't want to spend another month or two waiting to see if schlerotherapy is going to work. Any suggestions?
