Just to update to keep an accurate record of my fills/unfills - because I've used two diff providers neither of them has a clue what is in my band - nor do I, tbh, but I could work it out via this blog
I felt my restriction was getting to be less and less and was beginning to worry whether I had erosion of my band. It's not common, but it is not *that* uncommon either
I had an x ray done, privately, it cost £95 and I just had to walk in off the street and was out inten mins. I got a copy of the xray plus a disc with it on - great service, Harley Street Xray Express is highly recommended.
I had to wait a month to see Dr C again, and during that time I worried myself sick that the xray didn't look good and showed erosion/migration of the band.
When I finally saw Dr C, he thought the xray looked great, but warned me that erosion can't be diagnosed by xray necessarily; and added that in the 8000 Heliogast bands he'd fitted, there had never been one case of erosion.
And he gave me a 0.5 mil fill.
And today I am down to 142, losing weight ever so slowly,but I hope I am getting back towards my goal
Dr C always tells me I've lost enough weight while I think I could do with losing another 20 pounds!
Till next time. .

please keep posting, I have loved reading your journey. I can't afford any weight loss surgery and have recently started trying the Paul McKenna system. I weigh in around the same weight you started at and being as slim as you are now is a long distant dream to me right now :)
