8years with my lap-band



Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! I'm Christina I've had my lapband 8years. Haven't had any problems till after a year ago maybe two I've had two kids while having my band I never gained out of control while pregnant both times but recently I've been having alot of vomiting can't keep anything down not even fluids I've been to the emergency room, I've been having pain where my band is located and I'm looking to get it removed and possibly getting a gastric sleeve. Feeling a little discourage like I let myself down. Starting weight was over 300 got down to 189 before my kids now I'm at 220 after having two kids.

I have had mine 8 yrs as well and started having abdominal pain at band site and intestinal inflammation. The upper GI found there is no restriction, but fortunately no internal damage. I find out this week what happens next. I also gained after my last child and weigh more than my pre-op weight. I am right there with you.
