    Pam, I, too, have regained 50 lbs. I am 8 1/2 years post op, lost 108 lbs, have regained 50. Back to square one, “trying” to diet, and not succeeding.

    Hard to believe my 9 year anniversary is tomorrow!! I started out at 439 lbs and managed to lose approximately 240. I have recently noticed that due to certain circumstances in my life these days…my appetite is back in full swing and I am craving all of the things I shouldnt! I would love to have a revision of some sort. But now that my BMI is down to 36 and I have no co-morbids….insurance will not cover! I no longer have the same policy I had when I had the intital surgery. If anyone would have any suggestions that would be great!
