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!

Yes, I chose lapband over sleeve. My surgeon won't even do sleeve anymore. I find it funny how negative a rap lapband has on here.

Curious why your doc wont do sleeves. I am deciding between band and sleeve but really want the band. My doc prefers the sleeve.

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
