Hi, I had IJ Bypass in the 70's. I weighed 424. Regained most of my weight. I had a lapband placed in 2005. I weighed 356 when I had it, and lost down to 170. In Sept. 2008I was totally occluded and had passed out twice in one day. My prealbumin level was BELOW severe malnutrition. I was pukeng up everything I ate over the pastweek. When my surgeon went in, he said my band appered to be in near perfect position yet I was completely occulded and had been having severe problems off and on for more than a year. I had all my fluid taken out the previous year.
I am gaining weigh like mad. I will either have a band replacment or a gastric sleeve. I need to get information from people who had a band at one time and had it removed and replaced with either the newer band or gastric sleeve.
Please respond if you can give me any info.
