Should a Gastric Band Be Repositioned Where Possible Instead of Removal? (photo)
Gastric band fitted about 2.5 yrs ago. Lost 5st, down to 10st. I had it emptied 9 months ago due to complications. However, I cannot eat very much at all and I am still often sick.I had a barium swallow x-ray at Harley Street a week ago. My surgeon has told me there is no slippage but I can have it removed or replaced should i wish. I am confused. If it has not slipped why am I having problems that can't be seen on an xray? I don't want to remove it and get fat again but I am far from healthy.
