Laparoscopic adjustable gastric band

Laparoscopic adjustable gastric band

Mine really isnt a question as much qs a statement. The Band does NOT reduce the size of your stomach!! It reduces the size of the opening to your stomach. Making smaller bites feel like much larger bites... your 'pouch' abive the band is not to be 'filled' as a stomach would; it is to slow your eating down.... banded since 2013.

Severe sweating after every meal

Severe sweating after every meal

I'm 3+ years post op (VSG) sleeve surgery. I severely sweat with EVERY meal no matter what it is... Sometimes up to 30 minutes afterwards. It doesn't matter what I'm eating, even if it's just a protein shake. Does anyone else have this problem? It's not dumping with EVERY MEAL...no matter what I'm eating.

Multiple medical n weight loss (outside the us)

Well been here for a while reading and posting on occasion. But never really read anyone who is similar to our living issues.

We are on disability which as many know means u live (survive) under the poverty line (under since u dont even make the base poverty line income). We live in a monthly basis of being food deprived so eating one meal a day is very much the norm. It isnt health but it becomes the only option. We depend on local food pantries for supply of fresh… read more

Hyperthyroidism and Obesity

Hyperthyroidism and Obesity

Hello,

I suffer from Hyperthyroidism (Graves Disease) and Anemia. I've also been diagnosed with a few mental illnesses about a year and a half ago and have been taking Citalopram and Lamotrigine for those issues. I've noticed a significant amount of weight gain during the first six months of taking these medications. I had thought it was because of the medications that I was gaining but decided to do a little test and got off of them. I had gone to the gym, ate a plant-based diet and… read more
