I was banded in Dec 07 and after quite a few fills finally began to lose weight (at 5.5mils in a 10 mil band)
In March this yr I felt I was losing restriction and putting on weight, so booked a fill with my surgeon, Chris de Bruyne.
He did an xray and said that my pouch was slightly dilated, and *un filled* my band 1 mil.
That was April 3rd; he said I'd be ok for a refill in four weeks.It's five weeks tomorrow.
In that time I've gained 15 pounds.
I am not able to get back to Belgium, and he isn't in London till May 15th, so in desperation I am going to see Marc Focquet for a fill tomorrow
I just have absolutely NO restriction, hardly.
I can drink 2 litres of water without stopping to breath, far less swallow.
Looking back my normal restriction level wouldn't let me drink more than 100 mls without stopping for a bit.I am gaining weight by the day.
But my biggest fear is that Dr Marc Focquet won't let me have a fill, cos my BMI is still in normal range.I am gaining weight so fast it is terrifying.
Will report back. If he won't give me the 1 mil back, I guess I'll have to try someone else.I have GOT to get restriction back, or this will just have been yet another mad crazy crash diet. . . Soz to moan. It's that time of night
