I don't know what else I can tell you to help you make up your mind on what you should do...other then maybe it would help you if you went on the web site lapbandtalk.com. There they...( people with bans talk about how they are doing and ask each other questions. That may give you more of an insight on the ban. I have found that fitday has been very helpful for me personally because you have to be totally honest with ones self on what you eat. I know when I have eaten to much or even not enough in order to lose my weight. I use it also to make sure I'm getting enough protein each day. I have lost hair in the past from not getting enough protein in my diet. Once it started coming out it took almost a year for it to come back in.
Hope this helps you some,
