I had a Lap Band 9 months ago. It was paid for by the NHS because I was 23 stone and couldn't lose weight because my knees are bad. It hasn't worked, I've only lost 10 pounds since having my first fill and I haven't lost anything got the last 2 months. I've seen my doctor and they cant figure why am not losing weight like I should be. I go back in 3 weeks for another fill and they're going to check to make sure the band hasn't slipped or anything like that. Right now I wish I didn't have it done

Hey lapbandloser. I'm in the UK too. How did your fill go? If your band isn't tight enough it can be hard to lose weight. I hope you're feeling better about things by now. Please update if you have a chance.

Hi there, thank you for sharing your story with us. Sounds like you've had a few problems since getting the band placed. Do you have contact with a dietician or nutritionist who can maybe help you with a food/exercise plan? Please keep us updated on your progress.
