For those getting your band removed

Recommended Posts

What symptoms are you experiencing? For me,I had the band 12 years and started to experience: major cramps and bloating . For the last two years I’ve gone back and forth to the doctor and had pelvic and abdominal ultrasounds . I got tested for gluten intolerance etc. my doctor finally concluded that I have Irritable bowel syndrome. I never thought even once that this could be related to my band. Over the last two years, the symptoms increased from debilitating stabbing pain than would occur anywhere from my abdomen to lower bowel region near my ovaries once ever month or two to twice a week!! I just had my bad removed and 8 weeks later , not one incident! I never my symptoms listed under the complaints that others list when wanting their band out ... so I just thought I’d share Incase someone else is in the same boat.

So the pain and issues were from IBS or actually issues due to the band slipping or intolerance to the whatever the band is made up from?

I don’t think it was ibs, but that’s what the diagnosis was... stabbing pain, cramps , bloating. Band out and problem solved!

After 10 years had increased gagging slimes & stuck randomly issues. Lengthy studies with diagnosis of sluggish motility, perhaps Barretts Esophagitis. Took out fill, reduction of Cx to few episodes yearly. No solid decision to remove. Yet.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
