Hi, my first surgery was in 2005, the second in 2007 due to hiatus hernia and I have had problems ever since. I also have band slippage and most of the saline has been taken out due to pains in my chest, excessive burping and shoulder pain. I am also having chest pains and recently they are becoming constant. It, to me, also feels like it is heart pains but I have had all the appropriate heart tests and this has been ruled out. I am now planning to see my GP and then my surgeon again to see what can be done as this is no way to live. I have regained my weight, have pain and feel uncomfortable most of the time...now we can add scared. Lap band surgery is not for everyone - I must be one of them. Good luck to you all...follow your instincts and if something does not feel right, then make sure you get it corrected. I hope to.
