I had a band put in 2 years ago and was successful – I lost 250 pounds. Last August I went for a routine fill. I was unable to hold food down so I went to get it loosened a bit.
A week later I got a huge growth on the port site, it was an infection. The port had to be removed.
I went back in for surgery and had a new port put in (September). January 9th I had a CT scan for kidney stones and found out that the port and band are NOT connected.
Is this a normal problem?
