It happened to me. Almost 10 years. I lost 120 too wow. I had to go to the er too. I was in horrible pain. Couldn’t keep Water down. You will feel better soon. Sorry it happened


Had lap band for almost 10 years. Lost and kept most 120# . It ended up finally failing and 8 had to go to the er to get it removed.
Sleeve surgery scheduled February 1, 2017.

Yes it was bad & I wouldn't keep anything down going on two weeks I'm glad I went to the ER. After getting your removed did you get another surgery?

For those that have had the lap band and had it removed and got the sleeve or gastric bypass..... how is it working out? How different was it from the band in terms of your eating and when you know you’re full?
