I was wondering if anyone could give me some insight. I went back to the doctor last week, and after taking an xray they told me my bad slipped. I immediately became nervous at the thought of going through another surgery and the financial toll that it would take on my family...(I'm getting married in a few months.) The doctor deflated the band and put me back on liquids. Then she said let's hope for the best... WHAT DOES THAT MEAN??? Is it possible that the band will lift back up on it's own, or is surgery inevitable? I don't have the re-flux or vomiting anymore since the band was deflated, and the pouch immediately and visibly shrunk. Has anyone had a slippage that corrected itself?
