Hi there,

Had my gastric band on the 4th October, lost 10lb on milk diet and first two weeks, since then nothing!

Feeling very disheartened

Going for my 4th fill Friday got 2.75ml in at the moment – Richard has told me slow and steady to get to your sweet spot but a month and no loss!?

Hi Tina

If you are only a matter of weeks after your band then it is absolutely normal.

You only have 2.75mls in so you have a long way to go. Most people have between 5 and 6 in to get to the sweet spot. Band weight loss is much slower than bypass or sleeve so please be patient. Also, you may still be swollen form surgery internally so Richard is right to tell you to slow and steady.

I know this is probably not what you want to hear but I bet any bandster would tell you the same – bypassers are the hares and bandsters are the tortoises – we all get there in the end! I have very close friends who have been exactly where you are now and are now 4/5/6/7 stones lighter after 10 months!

Just keep going – it will happen 😉
