Seeking success rates after surgery to correct a slipped band

on 2/3/18 4:40 pm - Yorkshire, UK

Hi all

Just hoping to contact anyone out there who has had a band surgically adjusted after it slipped. Did it work? Has it slipped again since? Does it take long to heal?

I had a band fitted in 2010 and loved it, and had great success. But over the last 2 years I've drastically lost weight as I can't keep any food down, sometimes even liquids regurgitate.I'm waiting for corrective surgery but wondering if I should just have it removed?

Your thoughts would be appreciated.

I had my original band placed in 2005. I gained about 50 pounds back and doctor found a slipped band. I had it removed and replaced with a new band in 2012 and lost the weight again. I went from 325 to 169.

Preop: 323......Goal: 199......Current: 161
