Unfortunately I did. After 3 years I had my band fixed which didn’t help I wasn’t able to have any fills so all fluids were taken out. I still felt restriction got stuck but did not have the reflux after that. I did end up getting my band out after 7 years. I ended up anemic and been having problems since. I can’t say it’s a result of the band. I do have 2 small ulcers near band site. Although I did lose 100+ lbs in less than a year I have now gained back 75. 😕. Good luck I recommend removal as it didn’t get better once the symptoms started.
