Band Out Tomorrow



Recommended Posts

Ok, so tomorrow is the day I get my band out. I have had it for 8yrs with success the first year then nothing but troubles since.

I will then have 8weeks of trying not to over indulge before my surgeon does my sleeve.

So nervous but excited for the coming months.

Good luck for everyone having surgery tomorrow

Hi mumoftwo,

I am a recent band to sleeve revision patient. I had my lapband put in July '07 and started having problems a couple of years later. I never found "the sweet spot" with it. In August of this year my band was unfilled so it was only taking up space in me at that time. I had my band removed and the sleeve performed on 10/25/13. During this period I was able to stay within 6 pounds. You can do it.

Good luck to you on your band removal and upcoming sleeve surgery.

I actually had the band to sleeve revision in May at the same time as my surgery with Dr Almanza in Tijuana. Went great! He is very skilled and has a very good reputation.

      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.
