Dee, I'm sorry to hear about the lady who passed, but I doubt seriously it had anything to do with the band. I've been banded for more than 4 years and I love my band.
I'd be interested to know how healthy this person was. It sounds more like this person may have had a blood clot or something related to having surgery period, but that being said, I'm NOT a doctor.
You'll be fine, just follow the directions of your surgeon, get in lots of protein and take care of yourself. You've got to move around after the surgery, that's so important.
