Out of curiosity, what makes you think your Doc did a band?
Sleeve to band wouldn't make much sense generally.
Good luck,

I was reading from my patients instruction paper .Your right that would be crazy.

Likely they use the same Instructions for all surgeries, and just missed a place from an old source that said Band.

But, it never hurts to make sure. Worst case you alert them to an error in the documentation. Well, getting something different than you contracted for might be worse, but let's hope.

Good luck,

Tek

Yea I don’t think many people even install bands anymore. Never mind as a revision from sleeve. I hope you get some answers soon though, that would scare me a little too.
