Welcome. If I were you I would do IP again instead of surgery. I had lap band about 5 years ago and I never lost all the weight. I have lost a little over 1/2 the weight i want too (and lower than the lowest after the band). But that is my opinion. Did you go through all 4 phases last time you did IP? Maybe this time would be the difference.

Best of luck. You'll find great support here.
