Hi all, well my jouney didnt start as a good experience but ended well.. I went from lap band to gastric sleeve.. I had the original surgery on Oct 28, 2 weeks later my Doctor discovered a leak. Had the second surgery on Dec 8, woke up with a feeding tube for a almost 2 months.. DR. Jayasselan did my surgery, and he's a great surgeon. Ive lost 44 lbs so far, and shrinking..My experience was a little rough at the beginning, but the outcome is great..

So sorry to hear of your difficulties. Like anything everyone responds differently and unfortunately you had a pretty bad response.

I wish you well my friend and hope this new year brings you healing and normalcy in your trek to become a slimmer healthier you.
