Thinking about weight loss surgery? Already had weight loss surgery? If yes, then this is the app for you.
GastricBand is part of a unique series of four apps designed with you in mind. Choose from GastricBand, GastricBypass, GastricSleeve and GastricBalloon or have all four if you’re undecided.
Each app is a comforter, a motivator, a weight-loss tracker, a source of support at your finger tips. All the questions you were too embarrassed to ask your doctor, all the tips on how to maximise your weight loss – they’re all here in an easy-to-use, vibrant, interactive format.
Created by a specialist weight loss team in Bristol, UK, this app covers the technical, psychological and emotional aspects of surgery. A consultant weight loss surgeon with an international reputation and a specialist weight loss nurse with over 10 years experience of living with a gastric band, combine forces to deliver a powerful series of apps, which will encourage you to continue in the low times and reward you in the good times. If things appear to be going wrong, then this app will point you in the right direction and get you back on the right track.
Weight loss after surgery is a long journey and not always an easy one. With GastricBand on your phone, you’re moments away from help and support and you WILL reach your goal.

I just wish I had this six months ago when I had my op- its really great for keeping you on track and really usefull for clinic appointments. Love the hunger scale. Well worth it!
