Hi Jason, I remember you from the lapband board too. I revised to the sleeve a month ago. The reflux and cough that I developed with the band are gone. Like Teresa said, the first few weeks were rough, but it gets a lot better. In my case the pain was the worst where the port was. But I have not vomited since I got the band out. Good luck with your revision. Great news that insurance will cover it. There is a failed lapband group and a band to sleeve group here on OH that you may want to check out.
