I met a lady who has a band the other day. We got to talking about it because my throat was gurgling like crazy, and I felt the need to explain it. She told me she's had her band for about three years. At one point, she had lost 50lbs, but now she's gained it all back. She also said she hasn't had a fill appointment in over a year because she doesn't like her doc (who happens to be my doc). I honestly didn't know what to say. I felt bad for her because here she has this awesome tool and it's just going to waste! I heard every excuse coming out of her -- you know, the ones we all have fallen back on at one time or another. I encouraged her to go back to the doc and get a fill. I told her how long I've had mine and how I didn't really start losing until a few years out. I wanted her to know that it's never too late to use your band. She wasn't buying it though. Oh well, I tried.
Have you guys ever come across this kind of situation? What did you say?
