I had my lap band surgery in Jan. 2011 and have lost 32 pounds, but I can’t seem to get a good adjustment.
To my frustration, it took me 5 adjustments before I even felt any tightness. That wasn’t until July. Life was good for 4 weeks, then I couldn’t eat or drink anything.
I was told I must have got something stuck which created an ‘incident.’ They took all the fluid out to let my band relax for a month. Since then I’ve had it adjusted twice and need to go back now again – it’s either too tight or too loose.
I feel like the doctor can’t adjust it just a tiny bit, he always takes too much out or puts too much in.
Anyone else having the same frustration?
And would it be a good idea to search out another doctor that may be able to give me better adjustments?
