Does a Band Need to Be Removed After Slippage? (photo)
I had a gastric band fiitted and lost 9 st. i had no complications until i suddenly developed constant vomiting. after 5 days i was admitted to hospital and was there for 9 more days before being given a barium meal xray which showed up slippage, it was then removed. if the slippage had been diagnosed when the vomiting first started, could the band have been saved rather than removed. the answer is very important as since removal i have gained 4 stone in 4 months.
