I guess what I was asking is when you had the lap band removed and had to wait 2.5 yrs did you gain any of your weight loss back before you had the reversal.?

No, I have not had the reversal yet. I am keeping the band for now.

yes.... i did, i gained 30lbs.... from 143 to 173.............. Sleeved 8/28/19 and i'm down to 120lbs

I loved my band and had she not slipped i would still have her.... the band changed my life.

I had a lap band in 2009 and now have a sleeve. The weigh I loss with the band was gradually returning and the tubing caused a problem with my heart. I found that recovery from the sleeve to be easy as it was a lot like the band. I am now much lower than I ever got with the band. What I don't have is the discomfort of the port, fills, reflux, and a constant reminder of the band. The choice is yours, but many doctors have found that the band was not a great thing. I had mine out and about 8 months later had the other surgery. Good luck with your decision.
