Hi Everyone,

I had my gastric band fitted 15 March 2011 and I initially lost a stone between the pre op diet and the surgery and have managed to keep that off but I cant seem to loose anymore.
I have had 2 band fills so far. I have 5.5mls in an 8.5ml band so way over half way.
I do have a lot of restriction and eat very little but i’m not loosing any weight. I even exercise now not loads but more than what I was doing before which was nothing!
I just don’t know what I am doing wrong I feel like the band is failing me and I feel under emense pressure as all my friends and family know I have had it done and keep asking me how much weight I have lost and I have to keep saying nothing 🙁

Any suggestions,advice or anything would help.

p.s I haven’t had a follow up with anyone since I have had the band fitted I have only seen the band nurse twice to have my fills and she doesnt ask me anything other than to do with the fills is this normal?
I also don’t feel I can really ask the band nurse for advice she herself has not had a band and she is also VERY over weight which makes me think she is possibly not the best person to ask for nutrition advice.

Please help
