    Swelling after deflation

    Thanks I got some insight it appears that I have a thyroid problem as well so hopefully medication will fix that and I’m hoping to get a fill soon

    Swelling after deflation

    I had my lap band in Feb /2011 it has been wonderful. How ever I had some band slippage and was deflated. The problem I’m having is this was on January 11, 2018 and since that time I have gained 40 pounds of water weight. I’m not sure what to do my doctor that did my surgery is in Albuquerque NM but I have since moved to Louisiana and the doctor that did the deflation tells me he has no idea why I’m swelling. I have noticed that here they do the other surgeries more then the lap band. I’m wonting to know is this normal and will it go way. I’ve have all kinds of test run and they tell me everything is working fine my ban is in a good location with no problems when the swelling started one of the test they ran was CT scan. Has anyone ever had this problem? And if so what did you do to get rid of the swelling. Oh yeah I lost 139. Pounds with my band I started out weighing 269.9 pounds high blood pressure, and diabetes type 2 since losing the weight both conditions have improved 100% to where I don’t need medication. Please help I’m so lost right now
