I keep reading on the Internet that she had "planned" to have it out. Anyone know if she actually had it removed?

i found this in an article

Sharon Osbourne has announced she will be undergoing surgery in December to remove the big rubber band she had installed inside of her in 1999 to make her tummy smaller. Also known as having a “Gastric Bypass,” Sharon previously lost 125 lbs with the surgery. Now she says she is removing the gastric band and relying on psychotherapy to help her with her eating issues. Sharon told PEOPLE magazine, "I have to figure out why I do what I do to myself. "I think I have some sort of self-destruction button." Even with that big ‘ol rubber band in her, Sharon still managed to gain 15 pounds this year as she tells PEOPLE, "I keep trying to eat more and more ... I'm a pig.” I love Sharon and was this close to buying her memoir, “Sharon Osbourne Extreme” a couple days ago. I can't help but keep imagining this band looking like one of those HUGE thick rubber bands you find around the office and start shooting at everyone. Although I know it's quite different, the thought of it still makes me laugh a little. I give the woman major props for making this decision and attempting to learn more about herself and the root of her eating problems through psychotherapy. Yay Sharon!

She has had her band for a long time now. Most have it removed by then anyway.

Good for her on working on the head issues. As I’m sure many of you have heard before… “They band your stomach, not your brain”. It’s always good to work on the head stuff too if you’re really going to defeat the demon.

I also thought it was a bit funny when it was called a “big ole rubberband on her tummy”.. LOL J

I have just read an article in "Woman's Own" 8 March 2010 ( an English magazine). In it Sharon confirms that she still has her lap -band but says that it is completely empty.

This makes sense. Why remove it if it's not causing any problems.Far better to have it there ready to use again when/if you need it.

I came across this thread through a Google search for Sharon Osbourne's band removal. I am curious about what you mean when you say most have it removed by then anyway. This is the first I'm hearing that the band is not to be considered permanent! My surgeon told me that unless something goes wrong, it is to stay in. Thanks for the clarification in advance!
