How Long Did You Have To Wait To Be Sleeved After Lap Band Removal?



Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

I am scheduled to have my non-adjustable band removed on 1/6/12 and was wondering how long some of you were told to wait before being sleeved after band removal? I am scheduled for MX on 2/21/12 for my sleeve with Dr. Kelly. I dont have an eroded band or anything, just the "normal" 16 years of puking that everyone else had (or has) and am sick of!! I am ready to begin this new journey and actually feel like a success instead of a failure like I feel with the band!

thanks to all of you who share!!! You really do make a difference for those of us that are walking down our path to freedom of the band! :)

Hi,

glad you posted this question, I have the same question...

I was banded in 2005...haven't had any complications such as erosion or slipping (thank God) but have decided to have this procedure done in June 2012 (have to wait until summer, teacher)

I hope people respond!

There isn't a set answer. Plenty of surgeons do it as a single surgery. It was recommended to me to wait a few months before getting sleeved as I had a slippage and lots of scarring and adhesions.

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.
