I was banded October 2010 in Belgium , all was ok but in December 2015 I was able to eat a lot more than normal and was putting weight on.
I had an X-ray and was told my band had slipped. After consultation I decided to
Have band removed and be sleeved at same time tomorrow 18/02/2016. I am 48 yrs old and suffer with fibromyalgia ME and have osteoarthritis.
I have suffered weight problems all my life and don't want to go back to that way of living.
I have a head cold and not feeling great got checked out today chest X-ray and was told the surgery will go ahead.
I don't mind saying I am petrified ????
