If you're going to do that, then go for a conversion to vsg or rny from band. Just my 2 cents. Welcome to the group!

That seems like quite a big procedure for potentially little benefit

Just trying to find out if it is done with local or general anesthesia. I have been banded since 2011 and it has worked and I have had no issues. Recently I had a rather large hernia repair in my diaphragm and the tube was most likely kinked or broken during this surgery. Since I have had success I would like to get the port tube repaired and that is why I just want to know is this done with a local and would like someone that has done this to let me know. Thanks.

Hi just had this done due to my tube being pulled apart during a previous surgery. Yes it’s general anesthesia and takes 1.5-2 hrs. Same day surgery. Best of luck to you.

      How can a bowel movement make me lose almost 4 pounds? How much poo am I full of?

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
