But you're doing it! I'm less than a month I will,be doing it too. Don't have a band but I'm sure I could rent the Salvation Army Tambourine Band if I wanted on September 5th. Point those toes ahead, it's your DAY OF DAYS, me along with everyone else out here at Bariatric Pal are sending our very Best Wishes to you! Update us when it's been completed but we are VERY PROUD of YOU today.😛🌸😷🌺😛

Congrats and good luck! I had my band removed back in March and revised to the Bypass... Best damn thing I've done for myself in a very long time!

Revision to bypass was one of the best decisions ever. My GERD is not gone but way better.

Add me to the band removal, happy with my decision bandwagon. Sorry for the pun, but it was intended. Yay no more choking and other weird swallowing things!

Starting this process now with my surgeon after 8 years with my band over 100lb loss and now esophageal dilitation caused me to have to unfill band and have had an o going weight gain. He recommended bypass and we are checking with insurance now. Anyone have issue with insurance not covering a revision due to complications of the band?

It’s gone now and post op has not been fun. I had it Thursday but got discharged Sunday . I’m hoping the trots leave whenever food picks up as I’m constant but I’m only on clear fluids and just started Protein yesterday

Complications is a factor with approvals, if an insurance company denied a procedure to correct a problem and that problem got worse, the insurance company would be in some serious trouble and potentially under threat of a lawsuit. They will more than likely make you jump through some hoops, monitored diet and exercise, follow ups with a nutritionist, etc... but denying because the band is problematic... I don't see that happening anytime soon.
