Not losing weight and I'm 18 months post op with 8.2 in a 10 mm band, how many more fills can I have?

Adjust band if
The reason to adjust the band is to suppress appetite with a small amount of food. If after eating four ounces of protein and a half cup of vegetables you are hungry in two hours, then get an adjustment.
It isn't your hormones that are keeping you from further weight loss, or the amount of fluid in the band, but what and how much you eat.
