I was banded 4 years ago which has been successful. I’ve lost 30kgs and diabetes is in remission.
I had a band slippage approx 12 months ago band was put back in place and has worked well until now I have developed a pouch.
I have been back on shakes and soft foods now for 2 weeks but my surgeon doesn’t seem to think it will improve and wants to remove band. I asked about possible sleeving further down the track but my surgeon doesn’t think it is an option due to scar tissue.
Is this the case as I have heard of other people having it done but I would like to know more about how successful or not this is and the risks involved.
I’m feeling very disheartened at present as I have battled weight all my life. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
