Lap-Band Revision

Recommended Posts

Having my Lap-Band converted to a sleeve. I had to have all the Fluid taken out a few years ago due to a hiatal hernia. Anyone else have the revision? How different is it afterward?

I am curious as well and will be converting from lap band to a gastric bypass. So I am looking for information on anyone who had a revision.

Hi, I had my band removed and a sleeve done in same operation, I now can eat all foods just half portions, it’s so much easier, I’ve not been sick once and no more stuck foods. I had my band in for 12 years and kept 6 stone off, I have lost just over a stone since having sleeve and now weigh just over 12 stone, I will be happy staying this weight

Following, sort of as I had my lap band removed 5 years ago and dr wouldn't do the sleeve at the same time. I am finally starting the process to get the sleeve and wished I would have gotten it years ago.

        I would love to be your accountability partner. I had the sleeve in 2021, so maybe I can give you some insights.

        Please message me back, looking forward to hearing from you!
