Hi Hayley

I had a band fitted at the end of last June and every time I go for a band fill they have great trouble in filling it I did have to have a defill when I went on a long haul flight & just before I had the defill I had some restriction. Since having the amount of the defill put back in plus 2 or 2.5ml on top of that over two fills I have no restriction the weight is not coming off. I was unable to have a bypass because I have an illostomy and food goes stright through me so why am I still not losing they were afraid that if I had the bypass I would end up malnurished.It really gets to me as I see all these people who have managed to lose so much weight and i’m still only around the 2 stone mark in nearly a year. I’m waiting to get some hernias done as all I see in my stomach are these great big things sticking out. If I could have a bypass I would jump at the chance as you know you cant cheat that and if you can’t eat something it will make you feel that ill you will not want to eat it again. Have a chat with the Chichester surgeons hope you get the end result we are all hoping for. Good luck.
