Lap Band Loser...I hope

by cheryl
(conroe texas)

I was banded on 12/9 and my first lap band fill was on 1/7. I was banded by Dr Wilkenfeld from Conroe, Texas.

I am not losing weight as quickly because I am a dialysis patient and I can not drink the 64 ounces a day of fluid --- wish I could.

I am eating tons less food but am losing slowly if at all --- my doc at dialysis says I am losing.

I had 400.00 extra dollars in my lap band account from not spending money on to go food or eating out.

It upsets me when my husband tells me I am eating too much. He has no idea how much less I am eating. He wants me to lose weight to get on a transplant list for a new kidney. He worries about me.

Hi Cheryl,
Don't worry that you're not losing "fast enough." ANY weight loss is GOOD weight loss! Remember the old story about the tortoise and the hare? Slow and steady wins the race!
