  1. Bad news for me. My band had eroded into my stomach. Dr said he saved my life. Thank you God! He also said no sleeve or even bypass EVER! I'm very upset right now. Been crying a lot but I would rather have my life. Thanks for all your prayers and support. May God send you all wonderful success!

    October Sleevers! Announce Yourselves

    Well bad news, no sleeve for me now or ever! No bypass either. My band had eroded into my stomach. Took 2 hours to get out. Dr had to call in a gastro specialist to help. I'm very upset right now. But the doctor said he saved my life. I know all things work together for those who love The Lord. I hate I will never be part of the losers bench. Much success to all you guys. I have enjoyed getting to know you all.

    October Sleevers! Announce Yourselves

    Starting my pre-op on Monday. Must do liquid diet for 10 days. I can't believe it is almost here. I am a band to sleeve revision and nervous my sleeve won't be done due to scar tissue. My Doc (Alvarez) won't do the revision if too much scar tissue in one surgery, will have to wait 5 months but I want what is best for me . We are going to the Melting Pot tonight for my last meal . Best of luck to all my 10/11/12 sleeve sisters! WE ROCK!

    Good Bye Band, Hello Sleeve

    Dr. Les Miles in Birmingham, AL did my band. Insurance won't pay and I can't afford it. He has not done many revisions so I was looking for someone with more revision experience. I really like Dr. Alvarez and I am very excited. I will understand if he can't do it in one surgery but will be very disappointed. I want what is best for me physically. Thanks for your prayers and support!

    Good Bye Band, Hello Sleeve

    I am having my revision October 11th. Have had band for 7 years. Not bad weight loss at first, but regained most of it back. I am having trouble with heartburn and some nausea. Ready to get it out! It has never been comfortable. I had my gallbladder out last year and my port tube was adhered to my gallbladder! My Doctor ( Dr. Alvarez) said there is a 50/50 chance of a complete revision in one surgery. Please be in prayer for me that I can get it done in one surgery. Thanks for all your support!
