In January 2010, I had Lap Band surgery. It worked great and I lost 95 pounds in 15 months. As often happens, I settled in about 15-20 above that mark. I continued to gain and lose the same 10 pounds, but all was good with the world.
In 2015 I had a stomach bug and got violently ill. In the ensuing months, I had so much trouble with my Band. In October 2015, my Band slipped. I had to have a complete unfill. I had insurance and doctor issues until I finally ended up with the wonderful doctors and staff at KBI. I had a revision to gastric sleeve in March 2016. During those months, I gained a significant amount weight, so here I go again!
