Common Questions and Answers about Weight loss hypnosis gastric band


Avatar f tn Is it not possible to do Weight Watchers even though you have had the gastric band fitted? It seems like if you go there and say your gastric band surgery is no panacea and you really need support, you should find a lot of support. Or you don't even have to mention the band if you think they would resent you for seeming to have an edge. Weight loss via diet is best done with other people's support no matter if you have had an intervention from a doctor or not.
Avatar n tn However, due to the less invasive nature of the procedure, the risks involved with Lap-Band surgery is less severe as compared to other weight loss surgeries like the open gastric bypass surgery. Unlike other weight loss surgeries which are completely permanent, Lap-Band is a reversible procedure meaning the Lap-Band device can be removed any time. So what are the possible complications and risks associated with the Lap-Band system?
Avatar f tn , did you mean Lap Band, MGB or both?? Which weight loss surgery would you recommend?
Avatar f tn Supervixen - Thank you for your lovely post and congratulations on your weight loss. The manner you are approaching your weight loss is the same as I did and, slowly but surely, the weight comes off. Kind of in the same manner it went on. The good thing is, it is teaching us a way of life, not a diet, and it is something we can maintain. Your offer to barmynan is gracious and I would like to invite you both to join as regular members of the WL&D community.
Avatar n tn Has anyone tried hypnosis for weight loss? So many diet drugs interact with Synthroid so I though maybe it was worth a shot. Just curious! (Ive gained 50 lbs since TT and quitting smoking a year ago) Yikes!!!!!!!!!!
Avatar f tn Spoke with dietician and surgeon about it and i am right to start trying in 9 months, however this is only because i had a lap band previously. They said its best to wait 18 months after weight loss surgery before falling pregnant. If you are concerned that you are pregnant take a test to see.
1346046 tn?1297156080 Have you decided on the bypass or have you considered Lap Band? I had the Band performed June 29, 2009, was only off work for 3 days, had no complications and very little pain, and have lost over 130 pounds in less than a year. It is a lot less invasive, a lot less dangerous, and it's adjustable. The main reason I chose it was that with bypass, the pouch they create will stretch over time and a lot of people end up gaining the weigh back.
299748 tn?1235156791 Is having the gastric bypas or the lapband surgery for weight los really worth it? I mean yes you do lose weight but what about the excess skin you get left with? and what if you are a diabetic and have a low bloos sugar, can you eat enough to get your sugar up to where it is not uncomfortable. Can you ever have a slice of birthday cake? Or will you have the dumping syndrome forever? Is it really worth it in the end??? I have had so many surgeries I am kindda scared.
Avatar n tn I am two weeks away from having a gastric band fitted by a specialist bariatric surgeon at a private medical facility. In the meantime through my usual doctor I have been referred to an ENT specialist as I have had difficulty breathing for some time and upon mild exertion become very breathless although I recover quickly. It feels as though I have someting spongy in my throat however chest x rays, thyroid tests and heart indicate all is normal.
Avatar f tn I had lap band in 2012 I weight 329 lbs in one year I lost 84 pounds I was happy working hard to keep it off but in August of 2013 I was diagnosed with ms I thought I was having.
Avatar f tn Hi im just wondering if theres anybody on here who has had gastric bypass or any weight loss surgery? Just want to know what kinda pain meds you take cause i have migraines and it feels terrible to not be able to take even tylenol. Gastric bypass pts cant take any other pain meds except tramadol& im tempted to take one. Plus i have a 2 ina half year old daughter so i feel bad that i she has to see me feeling crappy. Anybody?
Avatar n tn I too get mucous coughed up after eating. I have had a lap band for 8 years now.(waste of time for me-lost only a bit of weight and struggle to keep it off even eating less)I am interested that others think this could be associated with the lap band. Maybe a study needs to be done.
Avatar f tn Before they do a surgery like gastric bypass you have to loose a certain amount of weight before they will work on you. My mom had it done about 5 years ago and she was on a strict diet plan..its expensive and I believe with diet and exercise you can achieve the same results..
Avatar f tn I had weight loss surgery (gastric sleeve) 7 months ago and recently found out I am 9 weeks pregnant. The doctor wants my to triple my food intake which I'm not sure is possible. Has anyone else become pregnant after WLS?
Avatar f tn She only started gaining weight after she started exercising and reducing her food intake. Infact she noticed a slight weight loss before she started exercising and reducing her food intake.. so she did'nt start gaining untill she started trying to lose it...she is very frusterated! Her Doctor already checked her Thyroid and says it is fine. What else, if anything, should she be tested for. She has a disease that is associated with the "B Gene".
548476 tn?1214707282 Rosey, I have posted a few studies that show why your doctor is suggesting weight loss. If he has recommended gastric bypass there may be several reasons for this. Firstly, you are probably morbidly overweight and the bypass would allow you to lose weight at a much faster rate than conventional weight loss programs and this would allow you to start treatment as soon as your weight reaches an acceptable level.
Avatar n tn Hair loss is actually reasonably common after weight loss surgery, believed to be related to fewer calories taken in and calories being directed toward the organ systems that need them. Hair unfortunately loses out. The exact cause is not entirely understood, and so the treatment is a bit more difficult to determine. Most doctors agree that it tends to be temporary and improves once the body re-equilibrates after the initial period of significant weight loss has ended.
Avatar f tn Other symptoms of diabetes are urinating more and weight loss.
7216845 tn?1389269243 I guess I should have been more specific with my question and what I meant by medical insurance to lose weight. I was referring to weight loss surgery and liposuction. But I have tried dieting and I have a gym membership with personal trainer, yet nothing is happening; I'm showing no progress.
1626306 tn?1302483506 Have you tried relaxation cds or hypnosis. Their actually is a site where you can listen for free online to a hypnosis session for relaxation and anxiety www.freehypnosistreatment.com.
Avatar f tn I continue to gain weight. I went to a weight loss center and only lost water weight. I spent several of dollars each month but could not keep the weight off. Have anyone been successful with the lap band surgery having thyroid disorder?
Avatar n tn As I understand it, Victoza delays gastric emptying thus causing the feeling of fullness and decreased appetite. I actually started on Victoza about 3 months ago. I had to change to Byetta in about 2 weeks (finished Victoza sample and insurance would only pay for Byetta). I developed nausea at the smaller dose of Victoza, and never used the larger dose. The nausea was unchanged with the change of meds.....and I have lost a LOT of weight (29 pounds).
Avatar f tn I had gastric bypass surgery in 1981. Recently I have been losing weight in leaps and bounds and my dr is afraid I may have blockage down near my stomach and if I'm not better by my next appt, he is going to send my to a Gastroenterologist. See I would eat and then throw up. Today I am fine, but the day is young. I have been taking nausea meds and also cough meds today and they seem to have helped. Could someone help if they have ever had this problem before.
