Hiya Heidi, sounds like a bit of both actually. Bandsters tell me they have to eat even slower than us bypassers. Chew, chew, chew! Don’t worry about slower weight loss either as Bandsters are the tortoises and Bypassers are the hares – we all get to the same point in the end.
Also, make sure you are not drinking too soon before or after meals. That’s the one I still have trouble with 3.5 years after surgery! The wind is a give away that you are eating too quickly as that is the case for non wls people too.

Hope this helps. Never think your question is too small to phone about if you are really worried – they will have heard it hundreds of times before ;-))
