AP Band Since 2009. 1st 3 Years Losing Just over 100 Pounds. Gained 40 Pounds Past Year?

Laparotomy 1 yr ago with fluid removed for the surgery. Since then band has not been adjusted properly. Gained some weight at 8.5 cc prior to surgery. Went from 8.5 to 6 cc now at 7.5 cc. Surgeon doesn't want to add fluid. Have been as high as 10 cc. Overeat, Not having to take small bites or chew well. Surgeon does not use fluoroscope so uncertain of band problem or adjustment problem? What happens to the band if I keep eating besides weight gain?
