Buh-bye Lap Band!

on 7/29/11 10:36 am
 I was scheduled for band removal on July 6th, but I injured my back after falling down subway steps. My surgery had to be re-scheduled because I had to take NSAIDS to help with the swelling and inflamation.

But I am all better and ready for the band to come out!!

No revision for me, at least until I heal from the horrible mess in my esophagus.

Good luck to you. I really hope your esophagus heals quickly. Mine took a couple of years, honestly. But the diaphragmatic damage is the "gift that keeps on giving" in my case.

I REALLY and truly hope that you heal up quickly and feel better soon. Glad you're OK from your fall, too.

Take care.

I came across your message. Did your lap-band slip? what type of damage was done to your esophagus? I'm currently having problems with my lap-band .
