I had my lap band for 7 years, Starting weight 222 ending weight 129 I’m 5’4″. In July of 2014 I had to have it removed due to slippage and dilated and irritated esophagus.
I was at my goal weight when it was removed but very sick and started experiencing low blood pressure passing out. I couldn’t even hold down water.
Now 3 months later I have gained 40 pounds even after dieting and exercising. Will a doctor consider a revision even if my BMI is still below 30?
What are my options?
Patient Responses to the Question Above
Lapband with plication
Has anyone had any complications with the lap and surgery with the plication? I am always in pain and have gained back 45 lbs. Out of 70 lost. I am depressed very badly. Could I have the gastric sleeve done abd the lap and removed?
