Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Band

Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Band

I'm wondering if this can be done after a roux en y bypass?

My problem is not that simple. I cannot eat large amounts and I do not graze. I had my thyroid removed 10 years ago and that's when the gain started. The only way I lose weight is to not eat at all!

The lap band is only a tool. Like all WLS just a tool. And if u don't use them the way they r designed u will gain weight. You have to start with your mindset. U got to say goodbye to some foods that have caused u to gain weight. If u don't then u will remain overweight. Follow a meal plan high protein low carb and start a exercising and drink lots of water. U don't need a surgery to do that. Bless your journey.

@A MyObesityTeam Member:

I also have a non-functioning thyroid for years which and you're right, it can add a lot of weight that seems to stick like glue the older I get.

They certainly arent. I had the bypass and gained back 60 lbs. Must be a lifetime change.
