2nd time lucky! Band leaked, had it replaced - my 2nd time around.



Recommended Posts

So last year I got my lap band, after 6 months I knew something wasn’t right due to no weight loss after the Initial first few weeks, no restriction, and In fact weight gain! I went back had Fluid check tests, an ex ray and finally a consolation to get a replacement, nearly 1 year 1 month from the first surgery, I had my band replaced, they said on examination it was a manufacturers fault. To be fair the team were very helpful and I have no complaints, it can happen, and did happen unfortunately.

So I’ve had my new band 3 months and I have just has my 2nd fill 4 days ago, and oh boy can I feel the difference, definite restriction, quarter of the portions and if I’m not careful lots of uncomfortable moments finding out what i now can’t eat! Rice is one of them........ but I’m 3lbs down and finding my new path exciting. So far 2nd time round is going well.

Hi MWLS,

Just (re)joined bariatricpal and your post was the first I saw. I am 9 years out and I too think I have a leak. I go in tomorrow to get an eval. Thrilled to hear your 2nd band is working as it was intended to, and hoping for the same success for myself :)
