I was wondering is there was anyone that has had their lap band removed and a gastric bypass completed? My band seems to have a mind of its own and I am now awaiting approval from my insurance provider to replace it. If there is anyone that I can lean on for questions about life after the bypass and removal that would be great!

That's the procedure I'm having done on 9/11... lap band removal to gastric bypass. Mine hasn't failed, per se, but it did erode my esophagus and my GERD is awful!

I'm not a big Breakfast person... It's typically a cup of coffee (which I'll be trying to give up post surgery, much to my chagrin). I usually eat a yogurt or some nuts a couple of hours after I get to work. My band has always been tight in the morning, then looser as the day goes on.

Cateyez001,

I am set yo have mine removed and the Rousen Y (Spell) done on 14 AUG 2017. My Doctors stated this was the fastest they have ever seen a surgery approval, ever! Yeah for good insurance and good documentation! it took one week with one letter.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
