Is anyone else in this boat? I had a lap band in 2005 starting weight 310 pounds/down to 265. After 8 years of barfing in 2013 I had the band removed and revised to sleeve with great success down to 170 pounds. New boobs, then put on about 20, but thats it in 4 years! I work my touchas off to stay a healthy weight....Meanwhile...a giant haital hernia forms and GERD of the worst kind. Surgeon advises to remove hernia and switch over to bypass for comfort, not for weight loss. Did this happen to any of you? Please give me all the advise you can. I feel like this wont be as horrible, since I have made all of the lifestyle modifications. But what else??????? Please and thank you for your support.
