This forum is for everyone with all types of wls. At the moment, there are definately more bypassers, and there are also a few band/bypassers.

Anorexics and bulimics starve, this is not a healthy way to lose weight! It is important to eat enough, not too much and not too little! It is hard to get right, but give yourself time for your band to start working – you are only 4 months post op!

You are absolutely right to consider the risks of both ops, and the risks are greater with a bypass. You made the right choice for you, just give that choice time to work.

No one is saying that bands are rubbish – they work! I have no regrets having mine, my regret is the numpty who fitted it (and no, nothing to do with Streamline!).

Remember that most band success stories are 12-18 months post op, it takes that long to get to your sweet spot, lose weight etc. I think you are being hard on yourself and expecting a lot a little too soon.

Don’t feel alone on here, and keep believing that it will work for you.
