Has anyone had a lap band over sleeve surgery?



Recommended Posts

I use to have a lap band and had to have it removed because it slipped. My doctor revised it to a sleeve. But the sleeve just hasn’t been nearly affective and I so desperately want my band back!! But I’m finding that no doctors will do a band over sleeve in Houston. Has anyone had a band over your sleeve? I want my band back!! 😩

i had the band in 07 but a year later my band slipped due to forceful vomiting so I had it removed and converted it to the sleeve and all these years later I regained my weight back. I now am scheduled for RNY surgery May 3rd.

I have never heard of anyone going back to the band after the sleeve but do a lot of research so you can make a informed and comfortable decision that you can live with. Good luck!
