Hello. I have had a lap band since 2005. First one lost 100lbs it was great. Had complications slipped but in the opposite direction. Major issues. New band since 2007. Having a very hard time loosing wt. Thinking about having a RNY done. Any one out there had this done would love to hear from you. Good and bad experiences wanted and needed. Thanks Laurie

Good luck with your research and decision.  While not a revision, I had RNY in 2001 and have been happy I had it.  You could also check out the Duodenal Switch (DS) message board as a potential procedure you could be revised to.

I had my revision to RYN  from lap band in August of last year.. So for so good I did not have very much to lose and have lost about 52 pounds so far. Sw 249 CW 197 I am 6' feet tall, so I am not really wanting to lose much more. Best of luck to you.

 They shall run and not be weary, 
 They shall walk and not faint.

I had my revision from lap band to RNY this past November. I am so happy I did it! I knew that the band wasn't working out...but it wasnt until now that I realize just how BAD IT WAS!  This surgery comes with its own symptoms and issues but it is WAAAY better than the band ever was and as a REAL bonus, I have been losing weight.  I was so unsure and scared before hand. But I took the plunge and I am really glad I did it.
