I hate waiting and submitting this paperwork. I have been in band hell for about 2years, and connot get it removed and revised as of today because of paperwork.  I am so ready for a change, and to get past this"treatment failure" according to my past doctor.  If I had know today what I shouldh ave know last year, I would have not gotten the band.  The journey was helpful, fut ended with complications.  Now waiting for approval... while struggling to swallow .....

I am in the same boat.  My paper work was just sent in last night and now I am waiting on if my insurance will approve my revision and get this crapband out.

Best wishes to you! I have to wonder how much investigation actually went into the band since it has such a high failure rate! I feel like we are the guinia pigs when this should have all been tested before FDA approval.

I'm in the same boat with you.... I'm waiting for more paperwork to be submitted.    Do you still have fluid in  your band?   My first visit with Dr Scarborough in Houston  he removed all of the fluid from mine... I had way more in it than was reported by the quack who did my original surgery.  I felt wonderful for about 2 weeks but I am back to feeling like I am stuck all the time.
I had all the fluid removed almost 6 months ago.
