I had a revision from lapband to bypass last December and 3 weeks later had a leak. I was hospitalized for 49 days, on TPN, and horribly sick. Now, almost a year later, I’m finally starting to feel back to normal. I’m 3 pounds from my weight goal.

Its been a really rough year. However, I really can’t say I regret it because I’m so happy with the results!

Leaks are very rare, so yes it’s a possibility, but still very unlikely. Don’t worry, and I wish you the best of luck!

I had extreme pain in my side and back and nausea. My Dr. said that it just happens sometimes. It has nothing to do with the surgeon or anything I did. I knew I was at a higher risk because it was my second surgery. I was just part of the unlucky percentage that developed a leak.

Oh my, I am so sorry to hear that. What were your symptoms? Did you go home with drains immediately after surgery? What was going on it those 49 days? I’m so happy to hear you are better.
