Update and Gastric Band Removal

on 1/7/18 12:23 pm - North Pole, AK

It has been a long time since I posted. I haven't lost anything lately with the band, in August I started have extreme intermittent pain in my left side/shoulder, after about 2 weeks it became a constant, finally in Oct I had an UGI done, my band had slipped slightly, so had a complete unfill, pain relieved, had already been talking about band removal and a revision, they removed my band on Dec 30, while the removal was easy, there were complications at the band and tubing had embedded themselves in my liver, so the tubing and band had to be dissected out of my liver. I am at home and recovering and trying to decide if I am going to have a revision in about 6 months or not.
