Lap band has slipped, all fluid was removed but the band did not return to position. Must I have it removed?
My 10 cc lap band was found to have slipped 4 weeks ago. Doc removed all fluid with the hope the band would reposition itself. Went back for barium swallow to find the lap band is still slipped. My only symptom is reflux that is well managed with OTC heartburn med. The doc said I should have the band removed. Do I really need it removed? If I do, how much will it cost as I am self pay. I also had a full tummy tuck 6 months ago, I hate to ruin that with new scaring.
