My first Bariatric surgery /Lap Band was in 2007, at 250 lbs.  Within a year and half I had reached my goal weight of 130.lbs.  In 2010 a slippage was discovered, under went Revision.  Since then I've had multiple issues and gained 30 lbs.  During 2016 my Esophagus had expanded, my band was emptied completely in order to allow this to heal.  Since Jan 2017 saw my surgeon's NP every month, she would adjust  I had a few  days of restriction, then I was able to eat anything again.  Finally the surgeon saw me twice, then decided to perform X/ray under Fluoroscopy Discovered I have a leak.  Not sure of the source.  I will be having surgery on Friday 7/28/18.
