Will Be Banded No More



Recommended Posts

So, I had my band removed Friday. Insurance required I stay overnight for observation. Just a little sore moreso on the left side where my port was. I dont feel any different other than no resistance at all. Looking forward to my next journey,

What made you have your band removed ? im thinking of having revision surgery to bypass due to continuing problems and dificulty eating , its bad enough at home but when i go out with friends or family who dont know about my band i get anxious and generally struggle , good luck with your new journey

I was having issues acid reflux, sleeping with CPAP would wake up choking from reflux also had sband since 2004, I was no longer losing weight and was just not happy with the band. Also had hiatal hernia. I feel so much better sore but better. Just discomfort where the port was.

I've been wondering about 'what if' I have my own Band removed.

Obviously I'm gonna have to read more.


Good luck OP, hope all goes well.

      My life is WONDERFUL
      JUST PLAIN WONDERFUL
      I am 10 weeks post op today. I have lost 43 pounds!
      I walk 3-5 miles daily and I have picked up Hoola Hooping! I am on a dang roll and I love it.
      SO HAPPY I GOT THE SLEEVE!
      Sorry I have been absent on here but I really have made it a point to take care of ME. My exercise time is precious so I have to get it in before working or anything else.

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey
