I am three years after my Lap-band surgery. My long-term goal was to lose about 50% of my excess weight, which at the time was about 95 pounds. I got there by year two, or at least pretty close anyways ; )
BUT, now I’m back up to about 80 pounds excess weight and don’t know what to do!
I know, I know, the best thing to do is buckle down on diet and exercise. But I’ve been having a really tough time maintaining healthy habits. I have knee issues which makes exercise difficult and a CRAZY schedule between work and kids, which doesn’t help in the home cooking department. My husband helps when he can, but we both struggle with healthy habits and long hours.
After doing some online research I’m really thinking revision surgery might be a good call for me considering my circumstances.
Sounds like I can get another Band, but doesn’t that just have about as much chance of succeeding as the last one?
I’ve been reading I can get a “revision” to other procedures like the Sleeve or Bypass? Is this a good option? Is there a best options?
Any opinions would be MUCH appreciated!
Prayers to everyone reading this!
