I had my LapBand done in 2007 in Northern VA. My highest weight was 297. I lost down to 187 and had my confidence and was prepared to continue losing. However, I was having problems with throwing up most solid foods. I had saline removed twice to no avail. I rapidly started gaining my weight back. I think in one month I gained 20 pounds! I was eating all the wrong foods because all the good food wouldn't stay down. I couldn't eat any meat unless it was really soft our ground up. No vegetables but salad. I could easily eat mashed potatoes, gravy, ice cream, all the bad, but oh so good stuff! But I ended up gaining back 50 pounds and had lost my self esteem again. I went in to see about a revision, and they also removed all my saline. I had a small slip of my band, so i was approved for the revision. Within weeks, I had my revision. The weight isn't coming off as quickly as most RNYs because I have had the initial large weight loss, so it seems I'm destined to smaller weight losses, but as long as the scale is going down, I'm happy. I look forward to where I was before I started gaining weight, and then hopefully will continue losing even more!
