This post is for my dad. He had the sleeve procedure about 3 weeks ago amd developed a leak. He was in immense pain and the Dr. Had to then make a 10 inch incision on his stomach, go into his intestine and place a bag there which he would be fed into and he had to disconnect his stomach from his intestine while it heals.

The Fluid from the leak is now (3 weeks later) starting to reduce but he will not be allowed to eat or drink through his mouth for about 2-6 months. Once they check his leak has healed. He will then have surgery to remove the bag and reconnect his stomach.

Has anyone else had such a complication and of so what was the outcome?

Its so stressful as i recommended the surgery as i was very happy with it and now my food loving dad is nil by mouth till further notice :(

I think you need to speak to @RJ's/beginning.

She has experienced so much with regards to this procedure, her resilience is dumbfounding. What she doesn't know about complications - isn't worth knowing.

She's a lovely lady, so you will benefit greatly from talking to her.

I wish your father the speediest of recoveries and I'm so very sorry he's suffering like he is.

Feel free to ask us about anything if you need to. You're clearly a great daughter.

Hang in there and all the best :)

Thanks madam reverie. I need to find Rj clearly. I need to be geared with all the knowledge so when my dad is back i can keep him positive and as happy as can be. I know for me the liquid food stage was hardest so i cant imagine how it must be being nil by mouth. Thanks for the positive vibes.

Best of luck to you and your Dad. :)

I had a leak, also. They were able to not do surgery again and I didn't eat or drink for a month to give it time to heal. Mine was a pinhole size so it cleared a little quicker.

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!

      I'm not new, I was an active Lapbander from:

      February 6, 2017 Here I am on October 4, 2019 thinking back over my Lapband journey and how I thought I would be banded for life. Unfortunately, I have been sick for some time, and am on medications; and well my weight has constantly slowly increased. I was 225 pounds when I had my Lapband surgery on Dec. 17, 2010. At least my weight hasn't reached 210. I have been fluctuating between 202-206. For that, I'm grateful. I'm just excited to be able to have another tool to assist me with my weight loss journey. I'm not looking forward to the liquid stage, however.
