  1. It’s hard to believe but I’ve have my lap band for 10 years this month! I began to have burping (loud) and often in the past 4 years. Top of esophagus became loose. (Normal). I’m often suffering from gas pains especially when I eat salmon, cale, broccholi, omlettes, eggs, raw veggies, quinoa, pasta, chicken and vomiting ......no problems though with soups, fried foods, icecream, candy. Get the picture. I lost a total of 40lbs. And stayed there. I am completed unfilled but still suffer almost daily with stomach pain and gas. I am 59 years old and pass the hungry hormonal years. Does anyone know how much weight is typically gained after removal? Is the proceedure risky? thank you🙏 Solena
