I think it depends on your surgeon and how much damage he may find when he removes your lapband. I had to wait 6 months after my band was removed. However, there are other people my surgeon did the very same day. Good luck!

I'm having my band removed on 13/03/2018 and revising to RNY. Will keep you posted as to how it goes.

My revision surgery was one surgery. My surgeon even repaired a hernia I didn't know I had.

I just saw a surgeon today after having the lap band slip after 10 1/2 years and the surgeon said he can do it all in one procedure. good luck to you: I personally was doing good and got down to 137 lbs from 280 lbs with the band until I got pneumonia twice within six months so now I will have to have surgery no matter what.
