In March 2008, I had lap band surgery with Dr Cobean. I lost roughly 40 pounds way back, but am now heavier than I ever was pre surgery. I'm very interested in a revision to gastric bypass, but don't know how to approach this with my doctor. I feel nervous that because I failed with the band I would be turned away. Any ideas, input, advice... I'd greatly appreciate it. 

I am also curious if it would be possible to go through SMMC as it is closer to me.

Thank you.

Hi Jewlz,

We followed each other back in 2008!

You are the consumer here, they are the providers, their product failed you. You have the right to a revision if you want it.

Good luck, stay strong, advocate for YOU!
