Hi,

Has anybody out there had a lap band after having an RNY? I had the gastric bypass in 2000 and did very well (130 lbs. lost) for five years. Then, the pouch stretches over time, so my weight started to come back. This, unfortunately, is a common occurrence with gastric bypass. I am considering a lap band as you can adjust it as your stomach stretches. I have heard of people getting the lap band after the RNY (AL ROKER from Good Morning America did it) but would love to talk to someone who has done it.

Please can you respond if you have done this.

Thanks,

Zena

Hello,

Has anyone out there ever had a port revision? I had the surgery back in Jan and went in for a fill and the Dr could not find my port to do the fill. He took an xray and to his findings my port was fliped so I have to go back to surgery for him to repair the port. Is this normal????

My port flipped, my doctor found this out while trying to give me a fill. As far as I know, this can happen, but isn't "normal". I am his only patient that this has happened to, just my luck. It's been two years since the port revision and I haven't had any problems with the port. I had a lower body lift 6 months ago and the only difference is that my port scar is now much lower than my actual port, as the plastic surgeon took off over 12 inches on my abdomen. Good luck with your revision.

Has anyone responded to you? I have a friend that is interested in the same thing. I'm not finding any replies but thought I'd check with you to be sure.
