Slipped, Going Sleeve -hopefully, but now I feel pinching, pulling in port & stomach



Recommended Posts

Ok so I was banded in 2007, I have been living with a slipped for a while now, I had gained some weight and I have been living on tums, I went to the Drs the other day and she took 1cc out, now no more heartburn, well she gave me a perscription so that helps. Now she said it was time for me to do a revision, so I said new band she said NO the sleeve, so she said she could take out the band and do the sleeve at the same time so now I have some thinking to do, has anyone gone from band to sleeze and if so how do you like it?

Thanks,

MP

I am in the same boat ,reflux and nausea. Esophogram was ok waiting on upper endoscopy, I have to wait 2 weeks. Which I think is crazy since M.D. thinks slip or intolerance and wants to do revision to sleeve. What does everyone think of sleeve?

I had my lap band done in April 08 I lost a total of 90 lbs looking good went from a size 20-22 to a 10-12 lived every bit of that size. In 2012 my band had slipped the Doctor reverse it back and I started eating the horse the cow and the whole farm in 5 months my size has blew up to a size 18 I had no clothes to where cause when I lost that weight I gave away all of those clothes cause in my mind I knew I wasn't going back to that size. In the mean while I was still going to my doctor for fills every six weeks and to no anvil nothing was happening until one day after 6 fills already he gave me one that was so tight I couldn't get Water down. Finally after 2 days I called him and said I need him to open me back up and he did when I got to his office and he weight me just in those 2 days I had lost 13 lbs. I wish I could of lost the weight fast like that on a regular but now it's just a very slow process inches then a few pounds. I only went from the 18 to a 16 I have a very long way to go but now I'm thinking about getting the sleeve. I'm going to my doctor one more time for a full and if the weight doesn't start to drop off fast like before I'll just go and get the sleeve.
