Lapband 09/20/2012. I just had a upper GI and found that I have a slip on 10/28/14. I think this lapband slipped last year in 2013 about March but my doctor would not perform any testing procedure despite my complaints. I finally went to a new doctor because I was not happy and have been at a scale stall for one year despite regular exercise and one cup meal plan.

I am going to the new lapband doctor to see what can be done. I would like the revision to the sleeve so that means going for an approval with my insurance company.

I am down 55 lbs and have 25 to goal. I have a BMI of 28 and weight is about 158-160lbs and I am 5.2" tall

some slips can be corrected by going on liquids for 2 weeks and 2 weeks of soft with a unfill of the band. I had a small slip that corrected itself. don't be surprised if your insurance company requests this. good luck I hope you get what you want.

Update as of 12/12/14. After a Upper GI fluroscopy to view my band-nothing is slipped. I have my band with a 7.5 cc in my band. After I had my last unfill I have not restriction and I am hungry all the time. I have not lost any weight in 2014. I am still doing my fitness 1-2 hours per day 6 days and keeping my calories at 1000 per day.
