Good morning,

I have great news. I’ve been approved for my revision surgery from gastric band to gastric sleeve. I was initially banded on July 28 2006 with little to no weight loss. My band slipped and my stomach as turned. I have a great surgeon that I trust Dr Joseph Kuhn out of Dallas Texas. I’m new to this site and can’t wait for my new journey to start :rolleyes: .

Hello,

He will remove band first then within 4to 6 weeks do the sleeve. All will be done before the year ends because I have already meet my deductible with insurance and need to do it before this year is up.

Hi.. I had my band removed and sleeved all in one surgery 4 weeks ago. I'm hoping that it'll help me. One thing though, after the third week, my weight loss came to a halt. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Trying to figure it out now.

Good luck!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
