My Mum had lap band surgery in 2006. She had no weight loss success with it.
She had to have the band removed after the plastic tubing from the port to the band tangled around her bowel and caused part of her bowel to die. She had to have the dead part of her bowel removed also.She is sore and sorry for herself and is at present recovering in the hospital.
From the beginning she has told the doctors she could feel food pass through. She kept asking if it was normal but they just fobbed her off. Anyone else have this complication?
