I had my band put in on june 17th 2006 and after 10 years it slipped so I had it replaced with the sleeve. I would like to go back to the band and want to know has anyone ever had this done.

You can't "go back" from a sleeve. They removed ~80% of your stomach. It's gone. Forever.

I've never heard of anyone banding a sleeve? Why would you want to do that? The Sleeve itself gives you great restrictions. The band is designed to give restriction. I don't know that there is much value in further restricting a sleeve.

Why do you want this?

Why do you want to be re-banded? Have you not been successful with your sleeve?

It is absolutely possible to go "back to basics" and be successful with your sleeve, no additional surgery required.

I had a friend who had a sleeve done the same year I had my DS (2003) and then about 10 years later she had a band put on the sleeve. I honestly don't know how successful it has been for her.

I know someone who had surgery at a different hospital but comes to our support groups. She had a band placed over her bypass. It did not go well for her and she eventually got it removed. I assume it would be similar to a band over sleeve-meaning I doubt it would be positive.

I've never heard of a band over sleeve. Putting a band in, at any time, is a bad idea. The rate of eventual complications is 100 percent.

I've heard of other people that have done it but I'm not sure how well they did.

I don't think it's a good idea. I've heard of some real horror stories with the band just over a regular stomach much less a sleeved one. I think it makes better sense to get the DS. You're already halfway there. Many people need more than just restriction to get to goal & maintain it.

No one surgery is better than the other, what works for one may not work for another. T-Rebel

Having a band over your sleeve causes a huge risk of your band slipping into your esophagus. If you do into the LapBand section of this forum, you will see a lot of people recommend not getting it.

The sleeve already gives you quite a lot of restriction. If you have stretched it to the point of being able to gain weight back again, you may want to see a dietitian to go over your diet.

It is incredibly difficult to stretch one's sleeve. More often, people who claim this has happened are actually eating slider foods, which you can have in greater volume.
