Congrats to you! I can't wait to be in the same boat! We had our lap-bands in almost the same time. Mine was 7-2-07. Good Luck with everything !
Lap band 4 years ago. Revised to DS 8-2-11

Unfortunately, I had to delete this post due to privacy concerns.

Got a lap band in 2008. Tried hard, but didn't lose much weight & developed swallowing problems. Fought my insurance company for almost a year & finally had a band to DS revision on 5/11/12. Have now lost 125 pounds. Yay!

No Shelli, i won't be revising to anything else. My issues with the esophagus have to be fixed first.

Well, I hate to tell you something that is not true. But in my case the left arm and shoulder pain is due to the band and it is  very crippling at times.
