I previously had a lap band but had to have it removed after 8 years.  I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Generalized Hypermobility Spectrum Disorder (gHSD) with early onset arthritis in 2016.  Due to chronic pain and fatigue I gained back all the weight I had lost plus a few.  My surgeon wasn't even sure he'd be able to do the RNY because of scar tissue from the band.   Thank God he was able to.
