Gastric Bypass and 3.5 years later considering Lapband

Hi everyone,   Please email me if you had the Gastric bypass and you had a lap band afterwards to lose additional weight.  Want to know if this was successful for you.  I want to lose another 60 to 80 pounds and I am thinking of having the lap band to do that.  I have already lost about 300 pounds.  Hope to hear from you and thanks in advance for your replies.   Yolanda

That is a tremendous amount of weight!!! Wonderful job - WOWsers ..... I have seen people talk about having done that on the revision board.  If you look around there you will find people. Just in case you hadnt received a response.

Lap band takes along time to loose the weight with it.   You might go back to your bariatric surgeon and see if you pouch has stretched out.   They can do a revision to the pouch and make it smaller.   I really don't think that you would be happy with the lap band...but who knows?????    I have heard of the other way around....going from band to RNY....but never RNY to band.    Good luck with your revision and congradulations on your successful WLS.

There are several folks on the Lap Band bord that have added a band after their Bypass in order to increase the amount of restriciton on their pouch. Can I just say you have done a wonderful job thus far and I view you as one of my new Sheroes!

Come to the lapband board and ask. There is also a woman on the IL board who had lap after RNY and she is quite content. Check out the IL board.
