I had my gastric band removed at the end of August. I had been frequently vomiting and couldn't get liquids to stay down. Did barium swallow and the liquid didn't get past the band but there were no signs of slippage. I was scheduled for emergency removal and what had happened was an extremely thick layer of scar tissue had formed around the entire band and stomach and was squeezing my stomach and band closed like a boa constrictor. So band removed, and all the scar tissue was removed from my stomach. I did ok afterwards but the last week or so im having severe upper abdominal pain and lower abdominal pain. It's fairly constant and definately made worse by eating or drinking. I just think it's weird since I'm over a month and a half post op. Has anyone who had a removal had any post OP complications?

I haven't had my band removed yet, but when I do next week, I will be getting the sleeve. I'm sorry you're having complications. Just keep checking in with your doctor. Good luck.

      I baked a gross of (144) chocolate chip cookies for the coffee break (fika) at work. The cool part was that I managed to not eat a single one of them. Not only that but I finished with my baking by 11pm and got up at 5am for my doggie walk before work. This time it was MUCH easier to skip the cookies since I was thinking about dumping in the back of my mind. That and the damn gremlins (oops I mean  grehlins) are on vacation at the moment.
