Hello all! I had my lap band removed 5 days ago after having it for 6yrs. I am still suffering with acid reflux and indigestion symptoms. Has anyone else had their banc removed and still have problems? Does anyone have some words of wisdom they would like to share?:tongue:

Just a suggestion, but you might want to visit the "Life After LapBand" forum. The folks in there would probably be better able to answer your questions and help you out.

Hi mrspersia,

How are you feeling now? I had my band out 2-13-08. I did have some acid reflux/indigestion for the first couple of weeks but I feel good as new now. I hope it works out for you as well.

Hi SElaine! Thank you so much for your response. I am still experiencing bad acid reflux and indigestion. Im only able to keep down protein drinks and crackers. Even with those 2 things im constantly burping afterwards, and it takes a few hours to digest it seems like. Its very refreshing to know you had the same problems for only a few wks and that you are feeling great now. What was your diet during those few weeks if you dont mind i ask? Thanks again for sharing your info.

I sorry if this a stupid question, but why did you have your band removed. I was just wondering. I just was banded on this past December. What is it that may come along that may cause me to have band removed? Also, do you think you will gain weight back? Just wondering............thanks

mrspersia,

Mine was never that bad. I was uncomforatable at times, but it didn't prevent me from eating. I was on liquids for a while but quickly progressed to a normal diet. I haven't had a problem keeping food down. If you haven't already, I would contact your doc. I know mine had me on some type of medication for it during my stay at the hospital.

Hi smwww,

I'm not sure if your question was related just to the OP or both of us. I lost my band due to erosion. Believe me, it wasn't voluntary. I loved my band. I'm scared to death of gaining the weight back but I'm working out, eating right, and doing everything I can to keep it off.
