The answer is; no, I can’t. It’s impossible for me to feel my Lap-Band because there is no “feeling” on the outside of the stomach or in organs surrounding the place where the band is.

Mentally I know it is there. And when I eat, I feel restriction and am immediately reminded that it is there. But I cannot physically feel my Lap-Band.

The mental reminder in combination with the feeling of restriction is what helps me, on a long-term basis, from over indulging.

The band is a tool that I have committed my life to learning how to use to optimize my health and maintain my weight.
