A bit about myself....
I am a 40 year old man who is 6 foot 4 and 390 pounds.
At 2 times in my life I lost over 100 pounds.
Phen Fen - lost it and gained it back after I stopped taking the meds.
I would have kept on taking them but they were taken of the market as
you all know.
Procedure went great at first, lost 100 pounds total. Started at 410.
However after having some fluid taken out of the band I could never
get it back to where it was good again. It was too tight. I could
barely even drink water. I can get more fluid put in know but it has
stopped working. I have alot of pain when it is too tight. I also have
alot of reflux when it is tight.
I also did alot of exercise at first with the band. As soon as I
stopped I stopped loosing. Makes sense.
So, now I am ready for the MGB. Everything I have read sounds like a
good trade off for being smaller. I really enjoyed being able to run
around and do physical stuff when I lost 100 pounds before.
