First I would like to say congratulations to all of the successful bandsters.  I tip my hat to you.  This post is for those struggling, and those sitting with an empty band in their bellies thinking that it is latent and

I had surgery Jan 19.  I have lost 25 pounds since surgery, and 46 from top weight.  I had a tough recovery because of the damage the Lap Band did to my stomach, but it was all worth it.  I feel better than I have in years.  Thanks to everyone for the

I rarely have heartburn...RARELY, and it is never bad enough that acid comes to my mouth, but last night this happened.  It was horrible.  I got up and took a pepcid, and it stopped it quickly.  My question is, should this worry me about getting sleeve

I remember years back when I was on this board, there was a woman that was very vocal named LeeAnne.  I haven't seen any posts from her since I started frequenting the site again.  I hope she is okay.  Does anyone know what became of her?

I am nearing the end of pre op insurance hoops, and I was wondering if any of you would be willing to share before and after pics with me in the comments?  I love seeing the success of others....it gives me so much hope!

I know having my lap band has really altered my perception of pre op. When I was pre op for band, I was full of optimism. I am very excited about the sleeve also, but I am unable to grasp the same amount of enthuism I had pre band. Having horrible c

I swear....my surgeon consult has caused my body to go haywire...lol. I rarely have heartburn, but since I went to see My Doc yesterday, I have had some mild to moderate heartburn. My question is, how much heartburn is required to make someone second

I went to see my surgeon, and he gave me some "worst case scenario" information. I will share the ABSOLUTE WORST. He said that it is possible that he may not be able to do the sleeve if the band damaged my stomach too m

I am having this surgery because I am TERRIFIED of surgery. I know this sounds like a crazy comment, but it is so true. I am afraid if I don't do this, I will have to have many, far more dangerous surgeries in the future..... OPEN HEART, JOINT REPLAC

I will be having sleeve surgery in Dec.  I am very worried about depression secondary to not being able to eat copious amounts of food.  Did any of your experience "food mourning", and if so, how did you handle it?

Who has had a leak post op? What happened?  How did it get resolved?

 


C J posted a discussion topic 4 years, 10 months ago

I am having revision to sleeve in Dec.  I had Band removed two years ago because of complications, and suffered physically and emotionally while the band was in place.  Please tell me any NEGATIVE things to having sleeve.  I want to be prepared.


C J posted a discussion topic 4 years, 10 months ago

Surgery in December!!!!!  I am ready.  As a previous band patient, please TELL ME ANY REGRETS YOU HAVE WITH THE SLEEVE!!!! I simply want to be completely prepared.

My daughter has really been wanting this, so I decided it would be a good thing for her to have. I notice portions are small, and it's based in sound nutrition. I am only  a couple of months from VSG, and would love inout. Would this help prepare me fo

I have been looking over the Band board for a few days, and one thing I have noticed is that there is very little traffic these days.  I want to congratulate each and every single person who are experiencing success.  That is awesome.  For those not so

I am so thankful for this board bc it really feels like I am going this alone.  I know the main reason is bc my family and friends saw how I struggled with the Lap Band.  They are correct....it was horrible, but I tell them that I feel this will be dif
